Product Options

If you sell products that have multiple options (such as color and size), you can list them as one base product with different options. As a result, customers can select the options they prefer on the product page.

With product options, you may also:

  • offer extras (for example, gift wrapping)
  • ask buyers to upload a file for an ordered product or service
  • offer multiple selections to configure the final product

Create Options

To create product options:

  1. In the left panel, click eCommerce, and then click Manage Store.
  2. Click Catalog, and then click Products.
  3. Click the product you want to add options for, and then click the Options tab.
  4. Click +Add New Option.
  5. Type the name of the option (for example, Size).
  6. Select an Input Type from the drop-down.
  7. Click +Add New Selection and add a name and price modifier for the option.

Product options may increase or decrease the price of a product, but they do not have their own quantity of SKU. To track the inventory of product options, use Product Variations.

  1. Select which option value is the Default value. If the option requires a customer selection, select Do not preselect the default value.
  2. Click Save.

To provide separate images for each option, use Product Variations.
