Do not send your cards out in group notices
If you send a gift card out in a group notice, you are completely thwarting the no-copy system. Customers can claim unlimited copies of no-copy objects present in gift cards, and this also bypasses the safety protections included in the system.
If you do make a mistake and send a gift card out via Group Notice, you must IMMEDIATELY block the card via the web interface. If you need any assistance, contact CasperHelp Resident.
Be careful with discounts
In the past, merchants have accidentally allowed discounted gift cards to be purchased with other gift cards. This is a dangerous configuration which effectively allows customers to build up an unlimited amount of gift card credit.
Take care to disable discounts on vendors that sell gift cards.
Take extreme care with your permissions
If you hand out a "copy" gift card, it could give that person unlimited access to your store products!
There are protections in place which will attempt to disable your gift card if it's given out with the wrong permissions. This is for your protection, but don't rely on it. Check your permissions anyway. It's there as a last resort in case you make a mistake.
If you do make a mistake and send a gift card out with the wrong permissions, you must IMMEDIATELY block the card via the web interface. If you need any assistance, contact CasperHelp Resident.
