Price Display Settings (Premium)

Product Options allows you to change the way that your priced options are shown on the product page. It can either be integrated into the product price, or be displayed as an add-on. You can decide how you'd like them to display from within the app.

When choosing an option that affects how the pricing is visible on the product page, there will be code that must be inserted into the Theme files.
