Product Option Types

Select one of many

One of many creates an option where the user is presented several different selections and can choose one of them. Some examples would be Paper Type or Frames.

Single checkbox (Yes/No)

This is a simple toggle for users to check and acts as a simple yes or no selection.

Configuring Option Items

Once your options are set up, we need to configure the option items for each. Hover over the Product Option you want to and click “Edit”.

You can create unlimited option items. Let’s use Paper Type as an example and create 3 different option items: Matte, Luster, Metallic.

Click on the “+Add option” button and enter a name, optional description, and optional image.

Once added, you can click on the arrows for each item and drag and drop them in the order you want them shown.
