Gift Mode is an awesome feature which allows customers to purchase gifts for people and get it delivered straight to the person receiving the gift.
If your customers are predominantly buying from you as gifts that they want delivered to someone other than themselves, we recommend enabling Gift Mode. Here’s what Gift Mode gives you:
- After the email address field, there’s a checkbox where the buyer can specify if they are buying this as a gift to deliver to someone else (this message is editable by you on your Store Preferences page and you can set this to be selected by default if most of your orders are being purchased as gifts).
- This tickbox then optimises the rest of the checkout for buying a gift to deliver to someone else. The First Name and Last Name field labels change to Recipient First Name and Recipient Last Name. The phone number field becomes optional for the recipient’s delivery details.
- At the next step, the billing details become required, as these are the details of the person paying for the gift (not the recipient).
If you don’t want to enable Gift Mode but want to show billing details expanded by default, we can force Billing Details to be expanded as a manual modification. To get that enabled for you, contact the Rocketspark support team.

Gift Mode and custom checkout fields
Gift mode works in unison with any existing custom checkout fields you have setup. If you would like to add additional custom fields to your checkout, contact the Rocketspark support team with a description of the fields you’d like to add.
