Pre-Created Gift Cards

The actual physical format of pre-created gift cards can be anything, as long as the printed QR code on card holds data exactly as included in the Giftcard Number field, and the card is readable with standard 2D scanners. Charging and using pre-created gift cards on POS is done simply by scanning the QR code.

The Valid from/Valid to information is updated whenever a pre-created gift card is reloaded in the POS.
