Cart Platform Setup

Gift Wrap

Set up at least one gift wrap option. Refer to Magento’s Gift Wrap guide.

API Implementation

When a cart includes an item the shopper has marked as a gift, include information about the selected gift option within an item:

β€œcart”: {
  "items": [
    {"gift_options": {
      "wrap": true,
      "cost": 785,
      "message": "Happy birthday, Jane!",
      "merchant_product_id": 123456
          // This is the corresponding ID in your cart platform
      }
    }
  ]
}

This data structure applies to all endpoints that use a cart object.

Order Management Systems

To calculate order totals that include paid gift options, Bolt creates a hidden cart item that is not visible to shoppers. You’ll see this additional cart item in your order management system for orders that included paid gift options.
