as some other recent comments, i'm having install issues (similar/same error as gramadar) so not sure what's going on. again, no contact via messaging on this site with the developer. really wanted/hoped this would work from having read more of the positive feedback :(

Unfortunately, support has seemed to have gone away. Tried contacting both through contact form here and developers website and no response. Also, to those who are developing some custom work dealing with dropshippers, the gift cert doesn't have a proper address object associated with it therefore it causes a conflict with Dropship Onepage extension.
Do we still use it? Yes, but have had to revert to selling set price "gift card" regular products and manually generating the gift certs when one is sold.

Duuuude... This is an awesome extension.. worked like a charm in magento 1.4.1. Thanks a lot for this extension. I have used your store locator as well. That was cool too. Bot this one is a really handy extension. Thanks again.

Works great with 18.104.22.168. Thanks a lot for the great Extension. Is it possible to include it as an item with bundled products, so when customer buys an item, they get let's say a $10.00 gift certificate, automatically?
I tried to do this but the gift certificate is not shown as an item when searched to be added as a bundled item.
Keep up the great work.

First impression is very good! Thank you for this great free tool.
If you have the problem installing because of the 'Beta' error, go to your Settings tab within magento connect and choose 'Beta' instead of 'Stable' and save.

Thanks for extension.
I use 22.214.171.124. version and getting blank page. I made product with Gift certificate type but it is almost empty, not configure it because of blank page.
I empty cache and log out and log in, but all is the same.

This would be a wonderful extension if it worked with PayPal. For some reason this extension prevents vital information from being sent to Paypal during the checkout process. You end up with a Paypal checkout screen that is missing the item information including the amount and shipping information. The developer doesn't seem to have been around for a while now and there is nobody else to help resolve the Paypal problem. So, for anyone using Paypal on their site this wonderful extension is basically useless right now.
