On Thursday, March 19, 2020, we released a new feature that allows you to issue a refund directly to a gift card. The registration owner will automatically receive an email that contains information about the gift card.
Instead of immediately issuing refunds for canceled events, consider asking your registrants to convert their payments into donations or into electronic gift cards that can be used for anything sold through Doubleknot.
This enables your supporters to retain the value of their registration payments while supporting your operations during this difficult time.
For the duration of the COVID-19 crisis, there are no additional fees for issuing electronic gift cards:
- There are no additional costs for your organization to add the feature.
- There are no additional payment processing costs for your organization to convert payments to electronic gift cards.
- There are no additional fees when your customers pay for items with the electronic gift cards.
To turn on electronic gift cards for your organization, please call us or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Request to turn on electronic gift card processing.” We will enable this feature for you within an hour.
NOTE: If your organization is already using a different gift card processor like Tendercard or Worldpay (formerly Vantiv), the Doubleknot gift card features described on this page are not available.

We are here from 8 AM to 8 PM Eastern time to help your team any way we can.
