Product Options: Information & Overview

Overview

Product Options is a dynamic ecommerce tool that provides you with the ability to offer customizable options for your products. This allows customers to view and purchase different variants of the same product, such as a different size or colour of t-shirt, in the same currency as your Shopify store.

You can create as many options for each product on your store. This allows you to bypass Shopify's 100-variant limit, since Product Options does not create additional variants for non-priced options.

You can offer multiple selections using different option types, allow customers to personalize their products using text boxes, and more. There are a multitude of option types you can use to display your product options, including:

  • Radio buttons
  • Drop-down menus
  • Swatches
  • Checkboxes

The premium version also allows options to have additional costs associated with it, so customers can choose to add an 'extra' to their product for an extra charge.

Example

You have a t-shirt product on your store. You've given customers the ability to choose their sleeve length, colour, and size. Customers can choose their options before adding the item to their cart.

Availability & Installation

Product Options is currently available on Shopify.

This app requires liquid code be inserted to your Shopify theme to work properly. This ensures that the options appear on the product pages, and continue through to the cart and checkout pages of your store through the Online Store sales channel.

Note: Product Options can only be used on the Online Store sales channel. Other sales channels such as Shopify POS will not work with Product Options.

 Alert

Each theme on your Shopify store is different. This means that if you're planning on using multiple themes or switching things up, the code will have to be installed first. This code installation will benefit each of your themes that you plan to use to ensure the Bold Product Options app continues to run properly.

If you feel comfortable with coding, you can complete the Liquid code installation yourself, or you can use our automatic installer to complete this for you.

For more information for adding our apps liquid code to your store, please see our Installation Guide for Bold Product Options.

Features

Unlimited options

Product Options does not create additional variants when you create your options. This allows you to bypass Shopify's 100-variant limit, giving you the ability to add an unlimited amount of options to any of your products.

 

Bulk-apply options

Create option sets that are relevant to many different products on your store, and apply the sets to multiple products to save time and effort.

Example

For clothing shops, sizing options would be applicable to most, if not all products. Rather than having to make an option set for individual products, you can simply set the option set across the entire store, or specific collections.

 

Priced options

With the premium plan, you can assign an additional cost to one or more of your options. This can either be in the form of an added cost that you specify, or using another product/variant that's already in your store.

More information about priced options.

 

In-cart editing

Allow customers to edit their options from within the cart page. This way, they don't need to remove the option they've already selected, then visit your product page and re-add the product with the new selection; they're able to change their option selection from right within their cart.

More information about in-cart editing.

 

Conditional logic

Conditional logic - also known as a 'list of conditions' - allows you to show or hide subsequent options from customers, depending on what they chose as their previous option.

 Example

You're selling chocolates, and offer 3 types (white, milk, dark). You offer various fillings for each type of chocolate, but some fillings are exclusive to one type of chocolate. You can set your conditional logic to show certain types of filling to customers based on the type of chocolate they select.

More information about conditional logic.

 

Image/colour swatches

When you select the image/colour swatch option, you're presented with a selection of either uploading an image to show your swatches, or using a colour wheel to select your swatch colour.
