I have had this extension bookmarked for a while and finally purchased it today. Installed flawlessly and working as described. Would like an option to have a checkbox appear on the product page to add the giftwrap to an item instead of on the checkout page though.
However it works perfectly, and installed without an issue.
Recommended and great extension to add some much needed functionality to our store
This extension met our needs just perfectly. Easy to install and configure, all the must have features are present, with no unnecessary stuff.
Rough at the start but great support and product functions perfectly now
This was the extension we were waiting for! Purchased it when it first launched. It was a little buggy but the Aheadworks team got on it and it work great now.
This is a great extension
Thank you very much for this nice Gift Wrapper Extension. After some hints from the AW supports, the extension works like a charm!
Better than other gift wrap extensions
We were using a different extension at first and finally gave up on it and chose to use this one by Aheadworks instead. What a difference! For a start they offer 1st class, fast support - so it was integrated and working very nicely straight away. The actual extension is really intuitive for customers to use during checkout too - I wish I'd have purchased this one straight away. Highly recommended!
Good, but not quite all the way
We just installed this for the holiday season and it definitely does the job. As of right now, in the readme it has these notes worth knowing beforehand:
Limitations and peculiarities*
*this behavior can be changed in the next version of the extension.
- When the option 'Wrap each product individually' is selected, the price will not be altered. The price of Gift Wrap will be the same, disregarding on the quantity of the items in the order.
- Customer can choose only single wrap type, which will be applied to whole items in order.
- Gift Wrap will be always refunded in case of full refund for order. In case of partial refund, the wrap will not be refunded.
- Taxes are not applied to Gift Wrap.
For us there were a couple issues we have to work around:
1) The price of gift wrap stays the same, regardless of the quantity or number of items. Our gift box fits one item, so if somebody orders 5 different things, we have to do 5 different gift boxes at the same flat cost. There should be a way to make it $X per applicable item. For now we will just eat any additional cost associated with this.
2) If you are checking out with a gift wrappable item and non-gift wrappable item, it will give the options for gift wrap, with no note or anything saying that not everything will be wrapped. We had to customize to add a note everywhere for the extension in order to tell the customer it's only applicable for items that had an icon saying gift wrap available.
Other than that, the extension installs very easily and was easy to modify and fit into our design. For the price, I wish these plugins allowed you to continue to get updates for more than just 90 days, but what can you do.
One more thing, compared to a similar plugin out there, this one had the ability to turn on and off gift messages, which we did not want...so it was an important factor.
Perhaps with future updates, my review can be improved.
Excellent module and support
I am very happy with this extension. Our customers use the possibility of products wrapping quite often now. By the way, I want to say thank you to the support team. We ran into a conflict with another extension, but support specialists kindly responded, found and fixed the problem for us very quickly.
Works exactly as advertised! Thanks so much!
Easy and fast! I installed and configured it without any difficulties. The module works perfectly. Being new to Magento I was scared to mess up our store. But everything is ok! If I can cope with it, anyone can. Now we have a nice wrapping service. I feel relieved to have found this working and professional extension. Thank you aheadWorks.
