Can I Offer Gift Wrapping Options in Virtuemart?
As e-commerce becomes increasingly popular, it is vital for businesses to offer different payment and shipping options to customers. This includes offering customers the option to receive their purchase with gift wrapping, a service that is especially popular around the holidays. Fortunately, Virtuemart makes it easy for businesses to offer this additional service to customers.
Virtuemart’s Built-In Gift Wrapping Option
Virtuemart is a popular shopping cart and e-commerce platform used by many businesses. It has a feature that allows customers to request that their purchase be gift-wrapped during the checkout process. This feature is easy to set up and customize and can be a great way to add an extra level of service for customers.
To enable the gift wrapping option:
- Login to the Virtuemart admin panel.
- Click on the ‘Payment and Shipping’ tab.
- Locate the ‘Gift Wrapping’ section and click the ‘Enable’ option.
- Set the fee for the service by entering a dollar amount.
- You can also add a message that will appear on the gift-wrap (such as ‘Happy Birthday!’).

Adding Advanced Gift-Wrapping Options
Virtuemart’s built-in gift-wrapping feature is a great way to offer customers this additional service. However, if you want to offer more advanced gift-wrapping options, such as the ability to choose from different wrapping styles or add cards, you will need to use a plugin or extension.
There are several plugins and extensions available for Virtuemart, each offering its own set of features. For example, the Virtuemart Gift Wrap plugin allows customers to select from several different gift-wrapping options and add personalized greeting cards to their purchase.
It is also possible to customize the checkout process to allow customers to enter specific instructions for their gift wrapping. This is a great way to provide an even higher level of service to customers.
