Customer Wishlists that allow the customer to add comments to the item they selected

Customer Wishlists that allow the customer to add comments to the item they selected (why they want it) and then also know who bought it for them so they can send a personalized thank you note - either through the app, or at least let send them the email address of the buyer (maybe optional for privacy concerns)

It's for teachers making a list of classroom books, saying why they want them, and then sending anote to the parent who bought it.

any ideas?

Hi, Michael!

 

This is Max from the Shopify Team.

 

Could you please explain a bit more about what you're trying to achieve? Perhaps walk through an entire purchase and explain your ideal outcome(s). 

There are quite a few apps that can help with wishlists, but, we might be able to help pinpoint some good options or alternatives with more details!

 

Cheers,
Max

Hi Max, thanks for the reply.

I'm realizing that a gift registry app may be closer to what I was thinking.  But, here's some detail

Id like a teacher be able to pick items from the online store and have a [age they can direct people to.  The teacher would have the ability to write in why they want a book(and if they want more than 1, similar to a registry), or something about it.  Then, they could direct people to the site and we could track what was bought for that teacher.

in addition to that, the teacher would see that Mrs. Jones bought the book for the classroom, and then send an email to Mrs. Jones to thank her for the purchase.  all without too much intervention on our end.

Hi, @Michael_Buglio.

Wishlist apps could definitely work. Perhaps with the combination of collections for each age group or teacher!

 

Depending on the number of teachers you have you could create collections for them based on their needs and set inventory accordingly. They could have access to your full inventory, and create a "order". Then you could let customers purchase directly from the teacher-specific lists. 

Let us know if you've found any solutions in the meantime?

Best, 
Max
