  3. Your ORDERS page will not only display gift orders.
NOTE: even if your customer only selected a gift option without actually typing in a specific message, selecting the Gift filter will still result in the order being included.

 

View gift order messages:

Individual orders:

If you click on the order number, the popup will include any gift message that was requested by your customer.

Multiple orders:

Add the Gift Message column to the Orders page to see gift messages without the need for any additional clicks or popups. Learn more.

 


To customize gift order email notifications and packing slips: 

Create custom templates for gift orders:

Use these to exclude prices on packing slips and notification emails when the order is intended as a gift.

You can also add the gift message on a packing slip or email.
