Posting in the Magento forums has been disabled pending the implementation of a new and improved forum solution which should better serve the community.
For new questions please post at magento.stackexchange.com, the community-run support site for the Magento community. We will be providing updates on the new forum solution soon. For questions or concerns please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking to see if there’s any plans in the future for functionality (or maybe there’s an extension I’m unaware of) that would let Magento act as a Groupon.com-style shop that sells gift certificates and emails them to the customer as a uniquely-numbered PDF.
