Hi there,

We don’t currently have any gift functionality in EE.

What you can do is use the Promotions add-on and create a 100% discount (or any percentage if preferred) and assign that code to a single event, then provide the promotion code to be used on the event to the user.

Would that work for you?

Hi Support,

Thanks for response.

I have used Promotions functionality, but in my case I want to give/assign gift for a particular user.

Like Woocommerce, It gives us option to add another member email address and send him mail to register on site and use that product/package.

Is EE gives an option to purchase one event as gift card and by using that gift card we can get discount in another event.
eg. If I want to give you any package discount on my site then I will buy one event and from that event I will get a coupon code for $50 and this coupon code I will share with you and when you try to buy any event on site that time you can use that code and get $50 discount on site.

We don’t currently have a method to automate this with EE, you can use promotions, but we don’t have a way to automatically generate a coupon code and send it to a user when purchasing a ticket on an event.

It could be done with some custom development but you’ll need the help of a developer familiar with PHP and Event Espresso, if you do not have a PHP developer on your team I can recommend contacting as they work with some excellent developers who’ll be able to make this happen.
