Photo book – How to order a gift voucher, including PayPal screens

Vouchers are great gifts for anybody! If you are going to a birthday party and need a present, or maybe you want to say thank you to a friend or family member for something they have done for you. Whatever the reason, a gift voucher is quick and easy to buy and you can send it via email to somebody in Perth, even if you live in Brisbane! And gift vouchers from pix2print can be used by anybody, no matter where they live as you don’t need a shop nearby where to spend it. The lucky recipient of the gift voucher can simply use it online when they are ready to order!

Of course you don’t have to buy a gift voucher for somebody else… as pix2print occasionally has some great deals if you buy a gift voucher you might want to buy one for yourself. We also help schools, charities, clubs or teams raise funds by selling gift vouchers for photo books. So you might want to buy a voucher via a fund raiser so you help the organisation raise much needed funds.What ever the reason for you buying a voucher, I thought I would show the step-by-step instructions on how to do it so you know what will happen in the process.

You can buy gift vouchers from pix2print directly, type in or use the link you were given from the organisation with the fundraiser.

Today I will show you how the main gift vouchers page from pix2print works, including showing you the PayPal screens you can expect to see when you go through the process. The fundraising pages work in a similar way so by following the steps below you should be able to order a gift voucher on a fundraising page too. If you get stuck, it doesn’t work the way you expected or want some help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch via any of the options on the contact us page (

buy gift vouchers from pix2printOpen the gift vouchers page or navigate to it from the home page of pix2print (click on ‘Products’ and then ‘Gift vouchers’).

The gift vouchers page might look slightly different, but essentially it will be the same. The instructions on how to order a gift voucher are repeated at the top of the page.

Every coloured box describes a size photo book (20×20 with a soft or hard cover, 30x30cm, A4 landscape and portrait and 33x26cm). Next to it you see 2 or 3 options for the number of pages in that size photo book.

If you see the size with the number of pages you would like to buy, click on that button. That will automatically open up a new page from PayPal.

The PayPal page looks like this:

On the PayPal page you can:

  • continue to shop (add more gift vouchers) by clicking on the button ‘Continue Shopping’.
  • add more gift vouchers for the same size photo book with the same number of pages by changing the number ‘1’ in the box under ‘Quantity’ and then click ‘Update’.
  • remove the gift voucher by clicking on ‘Remove’.
  • pay for the gift voucher(s) by clicking ‘Check Out’ or ‘Check Out with PayPal’.

Once you click on ‘Check Out’ or ‘Check Out with PayPal’ the next page opens and looks like this:

You can double check the size photo book and number of pages here in ‘Your order summary’ and then, if all is looking good, you can proceed to make the payment.

You don’t need to have a PayPal account to pay for a gift voucher from pix2print! You can see there are 2 options on the right-hand side: ‘Have a PayPal account?’ and ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?‘.

If you have a PayPal account you can enter your email address and PayPal password and click ‘Log In’. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can click on the link ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?’ which will open another screen where you can enter all your details to pay securely using your credit card.

This is the screen you will see if you have a PayPal account and logged in with your details:

logged in with paypal account

All you have to do here is check your details and click ‘Pay Now’.

If you don’t have a PayPal account and you clicked on ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?’ you will see this page:

paying without a PayPal account

As you can see there are a few more details you have to fill in here before you can continue to pay. Follow all the prompts as directed by PayPal.

Once you complete the payment PayPal will automatically re-direct you back to the pix2print website and you should see this screen:

Make sure you wait until you are back at the pix2print thank you screen to make sure everything has gone through fine.

You will receive an email from PayPal with the purchase details and then you will also receive an email from pix2print with your voucher. The vouchers are a pdf file which contains your unique voucher code. Open the pdf file to find your voucher code and expiry date.

Start creating you photo book and when you are ready to order, click on the order button (read more about the order process) and enter the voucher code when prompted to pay for your photo book. Don’t forget you will still have to pay for postage as that is not included in the gift voucher price.

PS Don’t forget, if you want to give a gift voucher with a different number of pages included (some photo books can have as many as 120!) or you want to give a gift voucher for making a calendar, send us an email and we can help you out, no problem.
