Set up Options and Relationships with Product Options



In Product Options 2.0, there is a new way to set up your options and assign them to your products. If you are still using Options 1.0, visit Set up Options in Product Options 1.0 for instructions.

To set up options and relationships in Options, please follow these steps:

  1. From Shopify's admin, select Apps.

    Select the Apps option on the left-hand side of your Shopify admin

  2. Select Product Options by Bold.

    Select Product Options by Bold from your list of apps

    Note: Selecting "Products" in the previous step will have you choose each item you want to associate this option set with. If selecting 15 products or more, we recommend selecting "Dynamic List". This will allow you to choose a more refined list of items using the conditions.
