Add-On Type(s)



Store: Gift Wrapping extends the DevDemon Store module to allow for a 'last-minute' addition (during Checkout) of a selected item. This can serve as a gift-wrapping addition, an impulse purchase, etc.

This add-on is compatible with Store 1.x releases. The functionality of this extension is natively available in Store 2.

In the Extension Settings, specify the product ID of the “gift wrapping” item, and also specify form field names for the action, quantity, and message to be processed. Valid action values may include adding items (“a”), updating the quantity (“u”), or doing nothing i.e. bypassing the extension (“n”). The form fields can be placed inside any Store tag that causes the cart to be udpated, including the Cart and Checkout tags. (If no action or quantity is supplied via the specified form fields, the extension will assume the default values provided in the Extension Settings.) The “gift wrapping” item will be processed whenever the cart is updated.

In addition to executing the action you specify, the extension adds the following variables to the Cart:

  • gw_product_id
  • gw_action (type of action executed on last submit: a/u/n)
  • gw_qty (qty added/updated on the last submit)
  • gw_qty_in_cart
  • gw_order_qty_sans_giftwrapping
  • gw_subtotal_val
  • gw_subtotal
  • gw_total_val
  • gw_total
  • gw_order_subtotal_sans_giftwrapping_val
  • gw_order_subtotal_sans_giftwrapping
  • gw_order_total_sans_giftwrapping_val
  • gw_order_total_sans_giftwrapping

These variables can be accessed anywhere Store’s cart variables are available, such as inside the Cart and Checkout tags.

n.b. The Store: Gift Wrapping extension is in PUBLIC BETA and may not be suitable for production sites.
