Gift Card Sales

I read the article about entering gift cards into daily sales. The step explaining the sales entry for a gift card sold states "on the second line, use the Gift Cert Pmt payment item to show the amount you received in payment for the gift certificate". There is no such item. I created the liability account, the expense account, and the item account for Gift Certificate Sold. There were no instructions for setting up a payment item. Even if there were, there is no way to enter a payment item on an invoice. What am I missing?

You need to create a service Item where the income account is mapped to the liability

Thank you for your time.
