Granted, if you sell only refrigerators, then wrapping paper and cards for gifts might not play a major role in your commercial success. But customers are always grateful when they can enter a gift recipients address as delivery address, and then select nice wrapping paper and customise a card to top it all off.

To offer this option in your shop, click within your shop administration on Settings –> Delivery and Payment –> Delivery Options. You will then see two examples. You can modify these examples and add additional options. In addition to a name and description of the delivery option, you can indicate price and tax bracket. The Display entry field Yes/No function determines whether or not customers will be able to compose their own messages. If so, then the message will be transmitted with the order; you must then print a card which bears this message. Though this does mean a little more work for you, your customers will deeply appreciate this great service. The Selection register allows you to define additional specifications of delivery options. For example, there might be various colours or patterns of wrapping paper; cards might feature different themes. To enhance the display in the shopping basket, you can also upload images. The delivery options will be displayed on your customer’s shopping-basket page and added to the order after the corresponding choice has been made. May many gifts be given!
