When there, hover over their picture and the little envelope will appear to allow you to private message them. They can then respond to you via the website.

What do I do when a customer buys a Gift Certificate?
1. Create a coupon in your shop for the amount purchased (1 time use only)
2. Email the customer the gift certificate asap. The gift certificate needs to be pretty and should include the coupon code, the amount and a link to your shop. You are welcome to use the Conscious Crafties Gift Certificate Template.

Tip: When packaging up your orders, think how you can make it a special experience for your customers when unwrapping. Pretty, inexpensive or homemade packaging really adds to the excitement for your customers and also helps encourage them to write positive reviews 🙂

Happy Crafting! 🙂
