CreateGiftCardActivityRequest for free gift card

I’m trying to create a free gift card for a customer using the GiftCardsApi. When I run the CreateGiftCardActivityRequest endpoint with the ‘ACTIVATE’ type I need to specify the order_id & line_item_uid OR the amount & buyer_payment_instrument_id.

The problem I’m having is that because this is a freely given gift card there is no order_id, line_item_uid or buyer_payment_instrument_id included.

How can I achieve my aim of giving a customer a free gift card?

You can Create and Activate a Gift Card When Using a Custom Processing System which won’t require an order_id and uses a custom buyer_payment_instrument_ids. :slightly_smiling_face:

Perfect, thanks. I didn’t realise the buyer_payment_instrument_ids could hold anything.
