Pass bundles are a convenient way to distribute multiple passes (up to 10) to your customer’s phones, with a single download.
When you bundle passes, your users will automatically receive multiple passes as part of one single download.
There are several use cases where pass bundles can be used. For example, you can bundle vouchers with your event ticket that your visitors can use either at your venue or at stores of sponsoring retailers. Insurance companies can provide one pass for each contract you have with them and many more.
How to create Bundles in gifttowallet?
- Using Projects
- Bundle existing passes in the gifttowallet backend
- How to define the order of passes in a bundle
- Using the API
When creating a bundle, the bundles are associated with each other by a bundle ID. Other than that, passes of a bundle can be completely independent of each other. You can update just one pass of a bundle, remove it, void it etc. You can add or remove passes from a bundle at any time. However, users will only notice it when they download a bundle from the pass download page.
There is no way to add additional passes to the Wallet apps after users have already downloaded the bundles!
After creating a pass that belongs to a bundle, gifttowallet will initially not create the additional passes automatically. The additional passes are created as soon as a user clicks on the “Add to Wallet” button.
But might be the case that you want to create all the passes of a bundle manually, for example if you’re selling tickets for an event and you need to specify different names for each pass. You can do this by choosing “Create all passes of this bundle now” after creating a pass in the gifttowallet backend.
If you need to create a large number of bundled passes, you can do this through Bulk Processing. After choosing the main template, you’ll be able to configure new bulk processing job, by uploading a CSV-File that contains all columns that are needed for your pass template. Every column represents one field of your pass. Every line represents the data of a single pass. A CSV-File can be created using Excel by saving the file as “CSV (MS-DOS) (*.csv)”.
To get started you can download an example file by clicking on the button below. It contains the needed headlines and one line which means this file would result in one pass.
If you use the example file the delimiter is a semicolon (;) and the string enclosure is a quote (“).
