Lightspeed (L-series).

With the integration for Lightspeed Restaurant (L-series), it is possible to issue and redeem gift cards via the cash register (POS) in your store. The integration works on both the iPad and iPhone versions of Lightspeed. Transactions are processed immediately in your Gifty dashboard. The integration is also suitable for companies with multiple locations and for franchises.

In this article, we will first set up a connection between your Gifty account and the Lightspeed account. We then add the Gifty payment button in the Lightspeed dashboard. Finally, we issue and redeem a gift card to test out the integration.

Installation

To install the integration, we start by granting Gifty access to the Lightspeed account. This gives Gifty the opportunity to communicate with the cash register. In preparation we need the following information.
