Selling shirts in four different sizes and colors? A spa service with standard and deluxe packages? Product options allow you to add all variants to a single product, saving you time and making it easier for your shoppers to find what they want.
To add options to a product, click on the product from Store > Products. Scroll down to the Product Options section and click Add Options.
For example, let's say you're selling a T-shirt, and it comes in two colors: red and blue. Let's also say it comes in four sizes: S, M, L, and XL.
First, you choose the input type. This determines what your customers use to make a selection on the product page. You can choose from a dropdown list, radio buttons, color tiles, or a text box for products that can be personalized.
To create the size options, let's use the radio buttons choice. On the right, enter the option title - in this case, size - and the sizes you are offering in the Option Choices field. You can separate each word with a comma, or just hit the tab or enter key. Options will appear below this field as you type.
When you're done, click Save to return to the main Product screen. You'll see your newly-created options displayed in a list here, and can set unique pricing, Product ID/SKU and weights for each option. The information entered the main Add Product area will be used for all options if you don't customize these fields.
To add the colors, click on the Add Product Options button and follow the same process you did for adding sizes. You can also use the Color Tiles choice and type the name of each color in the Option Choices field, which will display a preset swatch for each color name that shoppers can click on. When you're done, click save.
You can choose individual images for each of the options by clicking on the image boxes at the far left and uploading the corresponding image. You can also choose from any images you've already uploaded for your product. Don't forget to save when you're done!
Once you've created your options, you can go back and edit them at any time. You can even filter your list to show only certain options - say, for example, you sold all the red shirts at a convention and need to modify inventory for those options. This is especially handy if you have a large number of different options for a product. If you select multiple options, you can edit them in batches by clicking into any of the following fields: price, sale price, or weight.
