What do the "How do you want to handle quantities" options mean?

When you setup your product options and use the Adjust price selection, you can choose one of 5 ways to handle the quantities.

Select Show Advanced Settings from within the app admin while you are creating or editing an option to view these options.

Select an option below to view more information about each.

 


 

When using this selection, the number of products the customer has chosen will determine the number of options that are added (IE. 1 product = 1 option).

The quantity and price will display in the checkout as a total for the product combined with its option, and the subtotal will show the total of all products and options combined as one amount.

The customer can select the number of options they receive (IE. 1 product can come with more than 1 option).

The quantity and price will display in the checkout as a total for the product combined with its options, and the subtotal will show the product totals and the options totals as two separate amounts.

The quantity entered will be multiplied based on the quantity of base product chosen.

For example:

  • Base product: $20
  • Option: $5

If the customer purchases one product with three options, the calculations would be:

  • Base product: $20 x 1 = $20
  • Options: $5 x 3 = $15
  • Total: $20 + $15 = $35

The customer can select 1 option for each product, so each product in the cart will have its own option.

The subtotal will show the amount for the products combined, and the amount for the options separately. The option quantity will stay at 1 no matter what the quantity is for that product.

The customer can order only 1 option for the entire cart even if they chose an option for each product.

The subtotal will show the amount for the products combined, plus the amount for the options separately. The option quantity will stay at 1 no matter how many items are in the cart.

The customer will be charged once for a priced option for each variant that is added into the cart for a single product.

Example

A customer adds 2 mittens to their car: 1 large and 1 small. A gift wrapping priced option is then applied to both sizes.

If the customer changes the quantity for one of the mittens in the cart, the gift wrapping will remain at a quantity of 1 for each mitten size.
