You can change the quantity left a line under 'Stock List'. By clicking on 'edit' for the relevant item you will be able to change the amount left by increasing the amount of units that have been sold.

Please note you cannnot change the Total Available amount.

  • How do I set a minimum order value?

As a Gift Trader wholesaler, you are able to specify a "minimum order value" for Gift Trader transactions.

Through this setting, buyers will be notified of your "minimum order value", and prompted to order more of your products until this value is met.

If this "minimum order value" is not met, the buyer will be notified that their order may be rejected, and will be provided with your email contact details to confirm any additional order requirements.

Eg. if you have a "minimum order value" of $50, buyers will be prompted to order more of your products until this "minimum order value" has been met. This may be from one product, or your total product range.

To edit your “minimum order value”, simply login to Gift Trader at and update the value.

A default value of $0 (zero) is present, until you update this setting.

Your minimum order value is at your complete discretion, but must be in whole dollars.
No decimal points are allowed.

Note: This "minimum order value" setting will not stop transactions going through, but instead notify both you, and the buyer, that your specified minimum order value has not been met, and the transaction may be cancelled at your discretion

  • How frequently should I update my listings?

The more, the better.
We recommend updating your listings at least every second week, to keep your product range visible
