The gift giving feature allows customers to enter a Gift Message during checkout. This action signifies that the purchase is a Gift and therefore predetermined handling fees may be added to the total cost.
During configuration, merchants can enable Gift Giving, set a 'base fee gift' charge and/or a 'per item gift charge' and establish a maximum gift message length. Some merchants may want to charge a per item fee.
Enter the amount in the box provided. If both the base fee and per item fee are configured, UltraCart will combine the two and show the total as one handling charge during checkout.

Once gift giving is enabled, a Gift Message text box will appear on the Shipping (checkout) screen along with the fees that you configure (see screen shot below).
UltraCart allows merchants to configure a set of wrapping papers that customers can choose during the checkout process. Merchants can offer gift giving with or without wrapping services. Merchants upload thumbnail pictures of their wrapping paper to UltraCart which will be displayed during checkout. Fees, base and per item, can also be configured for each wrapping paper.

About Fulfillment House Integrations
PLEASE NOTE: Fulfillment houses may not support gift messages or gift wrap options. So, if you have a fulfillment service configured in the transmission mechanism section of the Distribution Center(s) on your account, it is important to check with them to verify whether or not they support these options before configuring this feature.
Since UltraCart has the ability to print packing slips, it takes into account that gift orders should not contain pricing information on the gift packing slip.
UltraCart will print two separate packing slips (one that can be mailed back to the purchaser and one that is included with the gift).
Part of the gift charge specified earlier can cover the additional postage required to mail the purchaser a packing slip, when the order ships (if the merchant wishes to provide this notification).
