Hey, David!

Aria here, one of the Social Care gurus at Shopify.

So you already have a store selling jerky and flavoured nuts and you'd like to start selling gift boxes containing these items. Is that what you're saying? How do you imagine it would work? Would you curate the boxes and sell them as is or would you have some sort of system where the customer would select the items that are going to appear in the box? If so, how would you like that to work?

You could literally customize any theme but these themes are particularly good for food related businesses. If you can tell me about the sort of features in a theme that are important to you, I can make recommendations based on your requirements.

As far as apps go, you may want to use a bundles app if you're going to allow your customers to choose which products go in their box. One of these may work for you:

There's also an app called Arka ‑ Custom Packaging that may interest you since you will be needing boxes.

If there are other problems you're trying to solve or things you'd like to add to your store, please let me know so that I can help you out. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Hi David, 

If you want individual SKU's and order weights combined with a customisable, broad selector design, take a squiz here - https://www.thepulseboutique.com/pages/stylebox

If this is what you're looking for, feel free to get in touch here - sean@swankyagency.com or checkout our Plus Expert agency here - swankyagency.com

In my opinion you're always better off to build these things into your theme to reduce reliance on external app API calls and speed up page load. 

Best of luck

Sean

Hi Aria,

 

I am also trying to do something similar here.

 

If you look at this link https://shopboxfox.com/products/build you can see BoxFox has 4 steps, first is choose a box type, then you choose your products in step 2 etc.

 

Do you know of a way of doing this exactly like this example?

 

So allowing a customer to customize a box for themselves using this style. Is there an app that does this, or does it need to be custom developed? If it does need to be custom developed, do you know roughly how much the Shopify developers would charge for this?

I am pretty sure they are using BOLD Recurring Orders

 

Specifically the advanced plan with BUILD A BOX functionality.

I'm also looking for the same solution (add-on) like https://shopboxfox.com/products/build and https://lovethesecookies.com/collections/create-a-box

Some of these add-ons may have the feature but I have to try first.

Thanks.
