Since we have launched Gift Box, we are constantly collecting merchants’ feedback. And there is truly a handful of it which is great.
Besides the missing discount coupon field in the checkout which we are currently working on we finally released in March 2020, the second most popular request was a possibility to grant a free gift when a customer purchases a specific product. And we are super excited to announce this feature is now available to all merchants.
How does it work
Originally, the Gift Box app allowed a customer to receive a free gift when they spend a minimum amount. The new feature allows a merchant to choose between minimum spend and the specific product being added to a cart.
When a customer adds a specific product, the free gift is automatically confirmed and added during the checkout process. We are still using the draft orders approach here.
Obviously, when the specific product is removed from the cart, the free gift is removed as well. Both rules can be combined with different gift offers. So it’s possible to give your customers a free gift when they purchase something and also when they spend the minimum amount.
Besides the specific product, we are also working on the collection targeting. So you will be able to give the free gift if a customer purchases any product from a specific collection.
Feel free to test it live on our preview store.
How to set it up
The buy X get a free gift targeting is supported by all the free gift offer types (product, multiple products, services) besides the shipping one. To set it up simply select the gift type and in the Threshold section choose Product X Added to the Cart.
Click on Select a product and load any purchasable product from your Shopify store catalog.
