The redemption of a Bookshop.org gift card is a multi-step process. Each step must be completed in the exact order described below:
Step 1: Create a Bookshop.org account. If you do not already have one, you must create a Bookshop.org account. You can create an account here: https://bookshop.org/signup
Step 2: Redeem your gift card into to Bookshop.org account. Please note that this redemption turns your gift card into Store Credit in your Bookshop.org account. Also, redeeming your card makes the redemption code invalid afterward. You do not ever enter this code again.
To redeem your Bookshop gift card, please go to https://bookshop.org/gift_cards and scroll down to the section that reads "Already have a gift card?"

Step 3: Log into your Bookshop.org account and begin shopping while logged in.
Step 4: When done shopping, begin Checkout. The first step in checkout is the entry of credit card information. On the next screen, you will be presented with an Order Summary box and your Store Credit will be visible there.
The system will automatically apply your Store Credit first to your purchase; your credit card will only be charged if your total purchase exceeds your Store Credit value.
Your Order Summary box should look something like this:
