Woocommerce Gift Wrapper


Vakanties en verjaardagen komen er altijd aan! Geef je klanten de mogelijkheid tot cadeauverpakkingen, per bestelling, in de WooCommerce winkelwagen.

Gift Wrapper treats your wrapping service as a WooCommerce product, allowing it to be inventoried, priced, and taxed separately. Create and offer as many gift wraps as you like, where you like. If you need more features and functionality such as per-product wrap options, try out the PLUS version of Gift Wrapper from Little Package (not to be confused with a similarly-named but different plugin sold by Woocommerce since March 2020).

Some Features

  • Create a simple gift wrap (or other add-on type) option form on the cart and/or checkout page, or go all out with robust gift wrapping offerings
  • Set individual prices, descriptions, and images for wrapping types
  • Show or hide gift wrap images in cart/checkout
  • Static (slide-down) or modal view of gift wrap options on cart and checkout pages
  • Get notice of the customer’s intended gift wrap message by email order notification and on the order page – customer also receives confirmation
  • Fully CSS-tagged and templated for your customizing pleasure.
  • If you have suggestions for other features, find a bug, or have a translation, please get in touch.

  4. Follow the instructions there and review the settings.

It doesn’t seem to work

Things to check:

  1. Is the WooCommerce Gift Wrapper plugin activated?
  2. Is WooCommerce activated and configured, and are all the theme files current (check WooCommerce->System Status if unsure)
  3. Are you using WooCommerce version 3.0 or newer? Time to upgrade!
  4. Have you created at least one gift wrap product, saved it to a product category, and entered that product category in your Gift Wrapper settings?
  5. Does the your-theme-or-child-theme/woocommerce/cart/cart.php file include at least one of the following hooks?

    do_action(‘woocommerce_before_cart’); or
    do_action(‘woocommerce_before_cart_collaterals’); or
    do_action(‘woocommerce_after_cart’); or

5a. Does the your-theme-or-child-theme/woocommerce/checkout/form-checkout.php file include at least one of the following hooks?

do_action('woocommerce_before_checkout_form'); or 

Due to third-party theme and plugin overrides, these hooks might be moved or removed. If you can’t find any of these hooks in your WooCommerce installation, you are missing a crucial hook(s) to the functioning of this plugin. Try using a different location for the “Where to Show Gift Wrapping” in the plugin settings, and if that doesn’t work, try the Storefront theme and disable all plugins except WooCommerce & Gift Wrapper to rule out theme/plugin interference.

Other problem? Please let me know before leaving negative feedback! I can usually reply to tickets within 24-48 hours.

Why isn’t gift wrapping added when I click the button in the cart?

Have you added a gift wrapping as a WooCommerce product? This plugin works by creating a product that virtually represents gift wrapping. It is up to you whether that product is visible in the catalog or not, and how fleshed-out you make the product description. But there needs to be a product, and it needs to be in a category whether or not you make more than one wrapping types. That product category is used in the Gift Wrapping settings.

Why make more than one type of wrapping?

Maybe you want to offer “Winter Holiday” wrapping and “Birthday” wrapping separately, or maybe you have other types of gift wrap service: wrapping paper or boxes you use that may incur different prices or shipping rules. It’s up to you whether or not you make more than one wrapping product. You don’t have to.

How can I style the appearance?

I’ve added CSS tags to every aspect of the cart and checkout gift wrap forms so you can style away.

If you would like to change the HTML structure of gift wrap lists and modals, you can use the Gift Wrapper templating system to do that easily.

You will need to create a folder called woocommerce in your theme — or better yet — child theme folder. Inside that folder, create another folder called wcgwp. Move any overwritten plugin template files into this wp-content/theme/woocommerce/wcgwp folder, and your changes will be visible. Read more information on WooCommerce templating here.

Can I change the giftwrap thumbnail size?

Yes, use the ‘wcgiftwrap_change_thumbnail’ hook in your (child) theme functions.php file as follows:

function my_custom_thumbnail_size( $thumbnail ) {
    $thumbnail = 'medium';
    return $thumbnail;
add_filter( 'wcgiftwrap_change_thumbnail', 'my_custom_thumbnail_size', 10, 1 );

This is just an example. Change ‘medium’ to the size desired, using an existing WordPress image size slug.

I don’t want more than one wrapping added to the cart!

Yeah, that could be a problem, but rather than hard-code against that possibility I leave the settings to you, and for good reason. If you don’t want more than one wrapping possible, make sure to set your wrapping product to “sold individually” under Product Data->Inventory in your Product editor. If you do this make sure your customer has a way to remove the gift wrapping from the cart on small screens, as sometimes responsive CSS designs remove the “Remove from Cart” button from the cart table for small screens.

Gift wrapping seems to interfere with shipping costs

To prevent this happening, I recommend you set up your gift wrap products as WooCommerce “virtual” products (virtual but not downloadable). If setting them up as regular or variable products, make sure to arrange the shipping settings so they don’t incur surprise shipping costs.

I don’t want to show gift wrapping in my catalog

Visit your gift wrap product (WooCommerce product editor screen) and set Catalog Visibility to “hidden” in the upper right corner near the blue update button. If you have more than one gift wrap product, do this for each one.

I don’t want to show something

This plugin is heavily CSS-tagged. If you don’t want to show a part of what Gift Wrapper displays, add custom CSS to your WordPress theme settings, WordPress theme css (usually style.css), or – better yet – WordPress child theme CSS file (style.css). WordPress also allows CSS to be added in the Customizer.

An example might be:

Let’s hide the gift note textarea/textbox. Add this CSS to your theme:

.wc_giftwrap_notes_container textarea {display:none}

.wc_giftwrap_notes {display:none}

Both would work. I cannot support all the requests for free custom theme help any longer! Please study up CSS or hire a developer to help you make custom theme and plugin modifications. Thank you for understanding.

To hide “Giftwrap Details,” you used to be able to just leave the setting blank (pre version 3.0.3). Now you can either use CSS or the ‘wcgwp_hide_details’ filter hook to hide it. To use the hook, add the following code to your functions.php file:

add_filter( 'wcgwp_hide_details', '__return_true' );

You can also adjust the HTML output using the template system (as of version 3.0).

How can I hide gift wrapping when there are only virtual products in the cart?

Easy, add the following line of code to your (child) theme functions.php file:

add_filter( 'giftwrap_exclude_virtual_products', '__return_true' );

If you’re unfamiliar with how to edit the functions.php file, add this code using the Code Snippets plugin.

How can I remove the COD payment option if gift wrap in cart (purchase is probably a gift) ?

Easy, add the following line of code to your (child) theme functions.php file:

add_filter( 'wcgwp_remove_cod_gateway', '__return_true');

I would like this plugin in my language, or to say something different on screen

This plugin comes ready with a .POT file. If you aren’t already familiar with localisation (translation) of WordPress plugins and themes, you can learn more here. You can add .PO files to the /lang folder of this plugin to change it to your language, or even to just adjust the English currently used.

To change what this plugin says on screen, create PO/MO file(s) in your language. If your site is in English (US), then you would be creating a PO file called woocommerce-gift-wrapper-en_US.po and putting it in the /lang/ folder inside the WooCommerce Gift Wrapper plugin folder (/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-gift-wrapper/lang/). If your site is in French (France), your PO file would be /wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-gift-wrapper/lang/woocommerce-gift-wrapper-fr_FR.po. Note in this case, you would be editing or overwriting the existing po file for French.

I recommend Poedit to get string translations done quickly and simply.

Another option is to use WordPress filter hooks included with most strings in this plugin. Here’s an example for changing the “Add Gift Wrap?” text:

function my_change_wrap_prompt( $prompt ) {
    $prompt = 'Would you like to wrap this?';
    return $prompt;
add_filter( 'wcgwp_add_wrap_prompt', 'my_change_wrap_prompt', 11, 1 );

Now the text will say “Would you like to wrap this?” This PHP code could be added using the Code Snippets plugin if you do not have a child theme and are not comfortable editing your child theme functions.php file or with PHP at all.

The PLUS version of this plugin allows for easy string translation by using a settings panel — just type what you want it to say.

The popup doesn’t work with my theme

If your theme uses a Bootstrap modal, there may be a conflict with this plugin. This is the case with Avada. Try dequeuing the Bootstrap JavaScript in the Gift Wrapper settings.

This plugin breaks my theme

I’m sorry I am not responsible nor for hire to make this plugin work with every theme out there. Some themes just, well… suck. It works with most themes I’ve tried, both paid and free, and I offer it gratis and as is. If you have suggestions for how to make it work for your theme, I will consider hard-coding in your theme fixes. Thank you for understanding.

It's not criticism just simple suggestions for development view. You should provide filter hooks specially for "Add gift wrap" button preview place. You shouldn't use anonymous function so developers can manually remove_action and add_action with function name on their desired place. Thanks

This plugin is excellent and the support too. The programmer responds quickly and gives good advice. The free version is already well done and provides the service we expect. For the moment I have a small shop, but as soon as it's on track, I'll switch to the pro version. I recommend it!
