The gift cards are sent to recipients with the cron launch.

If you have already configured cron jobs for your Magento installation then you can skip this step. Read the following instructions on setting cron job for your Magento store: Magento user guide.

Generally it would be enough to run in SSH console of your server: 

 

Code Block
languagebash
crontab -e

 

And insert the following line:  

 

Code Block
*/3 * * * * php -c <ini-file-path> <your Magento install dir>/bin/magento cron:run
*/3 * * * * php -c <ini-file-path> <your Magento install dir>/update/cron.php
*/3 * * * * php -c <ini-file-path> <your Magento install dir>/bin/magento setup:cron:run

 

Don't forget to confirm saving request when exit.
