I'm having trouble understanding all the numbers. What does it mean "Gifts bought online"? What does it mean "Vouchers issued"? What does it mean "Remaining list balance"?
1) Gifts bought online: Many of your guests will purchase or chip-in for your gift through the online gift registry service. The total value of gifts purchased or chipped in for through the online gift registry service is provided here. You can create voucher(s) for the IKEA Etobicoke Gift Registry from this total and use them to redeem your gifts at the IKEA Etobicoke store.
2) Vouchers issued: If you have requested and received one or more vouchers, their total will be shown here. This is the total of the original value of the vouchers at issuance and does not account for any spend through those voucher which may have a lower balance.
3) Remaining list balance: This is the difference between 1 and 2 and with its value you can create a voucher i.e. some gifts have not yet been converted to vouchers. Once you choose to create a voucher and it is issued, the "remaining list balance" should revert to zero (unless more gifts have been bought for you in the meantime!)
How do I know what vouchers I have and how much each one is worth?
Your vouchers will be listed at the bottom of the My Vouchers screen. Each voucher will show an original value and a balance. To use the voucher, select it and show it to the cashier at IKEA Etobicoke. Immediately after requesting a voucher and for up to 24 hours, a voucher may be shown as pending. Once it has been approved you may use it in store.
I'm in the store and I just ordered a voucher and it has not been issued yet?
