Advanced Tip: How to Offer Holiday Wrapping in Your Ecwid Store
Depending on your aims and scopes, you can offer Christmas wrapping for free, as a paid option, or as a combination.
Let’s look at these options in the Ecwid store.
Christmas Wrapping by Default (For Free)
First of all, you should inform your customers about your holiday offer. Of course, Christmas wrapping could be a great surprise for customers, but it’s also an additional motivator that amplifies the value of a purchase.
Add a Premium Option
You can let customers choose between free and paid premium Christmas wrapping. It helps you to cover all the costs and even earn some money.
You can easily set this up by using Product Options and Product Variations. Customers can even see what your wrapping looks like.
Add Christmas wrapping as a Product in Product Options
If you come to the realization that you can’t offer Christmas wrapping for free, just let your customers buy it. You may be surprised how popular it is.
In your Ecwid store, you can add wrapping as a new product in the catalog or give customers the opportunity to add Christmas wrapping to their products.
We look forward to hearing your opinion on what type of wrapping you prefer. And, of course, we really want to see the Christmas wrapping that you use. Share a photo in the comments below.
