+1 for this... as with all WooCommerce plugins it seems they are developed to solve one set of problems, but never really engineered to be an actual working solution to the full problem. In this case gift certificates.
Surely the model for this is Amazon and similar, where you have the option of emailing the voucher to the end recipient or printing off the voucher, which you can then put into a birthday card or whatever.
Smart Coupons works fine to a point, but there is a serious lack of what I would consider basic options for managing gift vouchers and appears to be geared more to store credit, which I can't see being as useful a feature as just offering virtual gift vouchers.
Without this feature I'm now going to have to do what I always have to do with WooCommerce plugins... buy another two or three to handle one situation! Considering the cost of Smart Coupons I don't think it's unfair to expect a basic level of operation...
