How to Tag Gift Orders on Shopify
When customers buy gifts for other people they may want to ship it directly to the recipient and so they’ll enter a shipping address that's different from their billing address. This situation can prove to be tricky for some merchants who want to tag this type of order as gifts. While there isn’t a built-in solution or a Shopify app that does exactly that, we can suggest a few workarounds that will definitely do the trick: Use an app like Order Tagger. This app allows you to set up rules to automatically tag orders so that your fulfillment processes can be streamlined.Product Options is an app by Bold that allows you, among other things, to add questions or notes to individual product pages. So customers can provide you more information about their order, product customization needs, or simply if they wish to order an item as a gift.If you want to allow your customers to add notes to individual products but don’t want to use an app, you can hire a developer or a Shopify expert to implement it on your Shopify store. It shouldn’t be too big of a deal.When customers arrive at your cart page, you can ask them for additional notes (this can easily be customized in most of the Shopify themes) and even specifically ask them if they're buying the product as a gift.In your order confirmation email, it is also recommended to ask customers whether they would like to add more info regarding the items they've just purchased. This can serve as your last line of defense... These five options are most likely to cover all of your needs.
