Offering Gift Wrap Services

You can offer to gift wrap your items for buyers for an additional fee. If you as the seller choose to include it, buyers will also have the option to add a free gift message that will be included with their item.

Turning on the gift wrap option in your shop

  1. Go to Shop Manager > Settings > Options
  2. Locate the Offer gift wrapping section
  3. Select Enable

Select your price

Once turned on, you can set the price of gift wrapping each order.

This fee will be applied to each order, not to individual items in the order.

Note: Using this tool, you cannot offer free gift wrapping.

Describe your wrapping paper and upload a photo

Provide some specific information about your wrapping paper. Include details like how the item will be wrapped or if there are any instructions the buyer may need to know.

Also be sure to upload a photo to really give shoppers a good idea of the kind of gift wrap you're providing.

Sales tax

In the US, sales tax rules for offering gift wrap services can vary by state. Be sure to check your local sales tax laws to see if there are any you'll need to follow.

If you do need to offer sales tax for offering gift wrap, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Finances > Payment settings > Sales tax
  2. Adjust your sales tax settings by state, a zip code range, or by specific zip codes
  3. Select the box under Apply to gift wrap?
  4. Click Save

Including gift messages in your orders

In addition to offering gift wrap, you can provide the option to include a free gift message with your buyer's order. Your buyer can select to include it at checkout.

You'll print the gift message out and include it with your order.

The gift message will include:

  • The buyer's custom message
  • Your shop name
  • The item purchased
