Just like your passes and subscriptions, you have the following options to add if needed.
- Purchase Limit: refers to the maximum times a person can acquire the pass. An example may be, a special promotion you're offering and you want limit how many times a customer can purchase this pricing option. This will avoid repeat purchases for your special promotion.
- Access code: select this if you'd like to make this gift card invisible... except to those who know the code. This is useful for creating exclusive offers and deals that you don't want just anybody to see or buy.
- Revenue categories: a great way to file away revenue that are associated with your passes.
