Free gift with purchase

Hi There,

We need to implement a free gift offer on our site and have read many posts which recommend a bunch of discounts and apps. However, we can't find anything that works...

Shopify built-in discounts
Requires customers to browse and add the gift to the cart in addition to the qualifying product.

Free Gifts by Secomapp
The gift has to be a product which is live in your online store. But if the gift isn't a product you sell (like a sponsored gift) then you can't use it. Our gift is live in Shopify POS with a stock count but it's not on our online store.

Gift on Order
This app didn't seem to allow us to select multiple qualifying products in the rule. Also, it required a bunch of theme mods and the screenshots didn't make sense with what we saw in our own theme.

Upsell for Products – Buy X Get Y
This was kinda confusing to setup but didn't allow us to select multiple qualifying variants of the same product.

 

Does anyone know how to:

  • Use a gift that isn't a product on the online store
  • Use multiple products and variants of the same product as the qualifying product
  • Auto-add the gift to the cart when a qualifying product is added

Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Ben

Hi Ben,

If you can send me a link to your site I can suggest the best of the apps for your needs.

I spent about 6 months searching for one and i think I've found the best one so far.

But I hate recommending inappropriate apps on here. So if you send me your link I'll let you know.

Seco app - those guys are notorious for leaving remnant code on your site - saying they have removed it and they don't.

Good, you're not a competitor

So the app we began using is Infinite Options by ShopPad.

It allows you to create drop downs that offer gift items and this shows up in your new order reporting for clear guidance on what to send who.

We have used it here:

https://vapeandjuice.co.uk/products/aspire-avp-pro-kit

 

You see the drop down boxes?

That's Infinite Options.

Anything else I can help with you can always get me on Deathground.co.uk - my e-commerce advice site.

Hi Guys, 

I have a product that is live, currently not in any collections or categories, so isn't visible through any navigation. However, i want that to be the item that is added to the cart as a GWP. Short of making it shoppable for the customer to add manually, is there anything else I can do to automatically add the product to the cart when the code is entered at checkout? I am not sure if the app you recommended suits that need.

Thanks in advance!

I've never tried these apps, so I can't recommend them personally but here are some that claim to do what you need based on a quick search:

- https://apps.shopify.com/gifter-cart-auto-include 
- https://apps.shopify.com/gift-box?surface_detail=gift+with+purchase 

Hope that helps!

Hi there,

App Selly can help you to offer free gifts automatically based on cart:

https://apps.shopify.com/selly

The gifts must be published on the online store.

However the gift can be hidden, so customers cannot purchase it directly.
