Great Free Extension & Support
Thank You Thank You Thank you.. This is a welcome addition to Magento functionality and I wanted to thank the developers for both the extension and excellent support provided through installing this extension for a custom functionality that my employer required for their website. I very much recommend this extension for it's usefulness and flexibility of the developers to support customization.

Not ready for release
I've installed the Devsters Gift Card extension on my test server and worked with it for a few days. I'm afraid that it is no where near ready for production. Examples of glaring problems: purchase a gift card, then every time you save a comment on the purchase order a new gift card is created and emailed to the purchaser. Another example, use the gift card to make a purchase and it calculates the wrong grand totals.
I hope the developer will fix all the problems, test it properly, then release it for public consumption. It's great to have a choice for a free gift card extension.
You should NOT expect that this extension is ready for use. You'll be sorry if you install it and start using it with your customers.

Why is it showing shipping methods options on cart and checkout page?
It has a bug I think - you get shipping method options on your cart and checkout page, which it should not be there in the first first because the gift card is non ship-able product.

WORKS LIKE IT SAYS!
This extension works with 1.8 fine. all do it does complain about google payment when installing. It does install fine.
I have tried it in a test environment have not test live yet.
I dont know if the email sending is supposed to work out of the box. Have not got a chance to look into that yet. But over all its a good plugin!

Excellent Extension -with great support
I installed this extension some days back but I was getting an error after installing it & on refreshing cache..
I dropped an mail to the support team & within 2-4 hours Mr. Gauatm responded back & suggested me few suggestion but none worked.. again I dropped him mail to help me out ...again he replied & this time he asked me to check is my compilation is enable/disable, I checked that- it was my mistake, it enabled compilation & forget to disable that & facing errors, inspite of that Mr. Gautam didn't told me any word but we chat for long time. Guys very nice support & great extension, One of the best & required extension for magento without any price with great support.

Great Functionality and Support
I love this extension. It fills a big gap in community edition functionality. Much thanks to Devsters for making it available. They offered excellent support as well, including posting an updated version fixing a bug I found, and walking me through a somewhat custom install on my modified 1.7.2 site. I highly recommend!

Installed the new update 0.2.0 on Magento 1.8
I updated the extension to 0.2.0 but the whole extension functionallty dissapeared!!
Its not in the backend menu and not visible in the payment options.
0.2.0 is not compatible with Magento 1.8.
the older version 0.1.9 runs good on Magento 1.8.
Im going to downgrade to get it work again.

Cannot get this to work.
I try to install the addon and the install shows all these wrong version errors.
I am running 1.7
CONNECT ERROR: Package community/Mage_Core_Modules 22.214.171.124 conflicts with: community/Magento_CE_Mobile_Theme 126.96.36.199, community/Devsters_Gift_Cards 0.2.0
It shows it as installed, but no amount of clearing the cache or anything allows me to actually use the module.
