From what I can see, it looks as though I need to call shopgift.asp from a hyperlink in order to enter the gift certificate routine.

What I would like to have happen is have a customer select a gift certificate just as they would any other item and then they would enter the gift certificate routine.

Is there a way for me to create a Gift Certificate Item which ends up calling shopgift.asp in order to complete the sale -- or... something similar?

Just brainstorming and haven't tried this to see if it works but couldn't you add a dummy product called Gift Certificate and whatever info you wanted in many of the fields, but in the Extended Description Page field enter SHOPGIFT.ASP instead of the typical SHOPEXD.ASP?

Thanks for the reply Eric.

Something along that line seems like it would have some success but I am worried that it is not straightforward enough. For instance, if the customer just decided to click the Add To Cart button instead of 'See More'. Then I'm stuck.

I guess I am a little surprised that this can't be handled without some trickery.?
