Product Options Overview: Options

Overview

Options are where our app gets it namesake. Options are dropdowns, checkboxes, file uploads, swatches and more, all created within the Product Options app.

This section will focus on the options created within Product Options, as this is the main feature of the app. Using options and option sets, you can provide your customers additional choices when purchasing a product on your store.

 Example

There are no limitations to what you can create with Product Options.

If you sell clothing, you can create dropdowns for Sizes (small, medium, large) or Colours (red, blue, green)

If you sell food, you can create dropdowns for Flavours (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry) or Sizes (10mL, 15mL, 20mL)

 Walkthrough

 


 

Functionality

When creating options, an option set is created first. Options are then created within the option set, which gets applied to your Shopify product(s).

Once an option set is applied to your Shopify product(s) and you have the necessary Liquid code installed onto your theme, the options will appear on your storefront immediately.

Please visit Product Options Installation for more information on the Liquid code installation.

By default, your options will display underneath a Shopify product's title (name). The display of the options in relation to your product photos, as well as how they appear, will vary from theme to theme.

Here are a couple of examples on different themes using different option types:

Colour swatches in a vertical line are shown
Colour swatches shown above.

A dropdown menu of jacket sizes is shown

Features

You can apply option sets to your Shopify product(s) both manually (one by one) and in bulk (via collection, product type, and vendor).

You can make your options required, which prevents customers from adding the Shopify product to their cart without making a selection first.

You can also re-order and change the placement of your options while editing the option set.

Using our Premium plan, you can also charge an additional cost for an option.
