Product Options

Options #

Options are additional separable product properties. That don’t have a quantity of their own, and don’t affect the quantity of the product in stock. But they can affect the price or weight of the product. Good examples of options are:

  • Custom engraving
  • Custom design
  • Gift wrap
  • Extended warranty

The Products → Options page allows you to manage all product options and option variants in your store. The changes you make here will affect all products that use these options.

  • To add a new option, click the + button.
  • To apply existing options to specific products, click the Apply to products button.
  • To edit or delete an option, hover the mouse pointer over the option, click the gear button, and choose the action from the drop-down list.

To make an option Active or Disabled, use the drop-down list to the right.

Sometimes it is useful to disable options temporarily, instead of deleting them.

If you need to create a variation for Size or Color, use the variation tab instead. 

Variant Properties #

Options of the Select boxRadio group, or Check box types have variants that a customer can choose from. Option variants can be configured on a separate tab called Variants and have the following properties:

  • Position—the position of the variant relatively to other variants in the list.
  • Name—the name of the option variant. For example, if the option is titled Size, the variants to the option can be SmallMediumLarge, etc.
  • Modifier/Type—a positive or negative value that will be added to or subtracted from the original product price. The modifier can be either an absolute value or a percentage.
  • Weight modifier/Type—a positive or negative value that will be added to or subtracted from the original product weight. The modifier can be either an absolute value or a percentage.
  • Status—the status of the variant (Active or Disabled).
  • Icon—a thumbnail to represent the option variant. You can also specify alternative text for this thumbnail, it’s good for SEO. 

These icons are shown on the product details page on the storefront.

Earned point modifier/Type—a positive or negative value that will be added to or subtracted from the original number of reward points that customers receive when they buy the product. The modifier can be either an absolute value or a percentage.
