But let’s return to the extension’s core features.
Rich frontend experience of the Magestore Gift Wrap Magento 2 extension allows customers to view wrappable products on both product and cart pages. The same pages provide the ability to choose gift boxes and gift cards with custom messages. Note that each gift box and card can be previewed before wrapping. And it is possible to add multiple gift boxes to a single order. If a customer is not sure about wrapping, he or she can delete or edit selected options on a cart page. Wrapping information is added to order, invoice, and shipment.
As for the backend functionality of Magestore Gift Wrap for Magento 2, it allows you to set image and prices for each gift box and card. The number of characters used in a gift message can be limited. The number of items for a gift box can be limited. Gift wrap fee, which is calculated on the basis of items amount in a box, can be excluded from tax. The Gift Wrap block/ popup is fully customizable, so you can easily configure it in accordance with your style. More details are available below:
Manage Gift Boxes
All gift boxes are gathered on a separate screen in a grid. You can delete boxes or change their status in bulk. Besides, there is the ability to export everything via CSV or XML. As for the grid, it consists of the following columns: Checkbox, ID, Image, Title, Price, Status, and Action.
While adding or editing a gift box, you should specify its title and price, add a gift box image, and select status.
Manage Gift Cards
A grid similar to Gift Boxes is used for storing information about gift cards. It provides the same functionality as well as adds a new column – Message’s Max Length.
While editing or adding a card, you also have to specify its name and price, choose the image, set a limitation on a message length, and select status.
Manage Wrappable Products
Manage Wrappable Products is another important screen available in the Magestore Gift Wrap Magento 2 extension backend. Here, you have a grid with all products. The grid contains a column called Wrappable. It shows wrappable/unwrappable products. You can easily change this quality with the help of mass actions. Select products and enable/disable the ability to be wrapped within just a few clicks.
The Configuration section of the module is divided into three sections: General Configuration, Gift Wrap Block/ Pop-up Configuration, and Calculation Configuration.
In General Configuration, you can enable/disable the module. Next, you can activate Step 2 and 3. If the second step is activated customers can choose gift card and write gift message. If the third step is enabled, buyers are able to set a custom quantity of wrapped items as well as add unwrapped items to the order with wrapped ones. The last option allows you to enable/disable confirmation when a customer deletes a gift wrap.
In Gift Wrap Block/ Pop-up Configuration, you set a color for your Gift Wrap option and add a gift wrap icon.
