  • Adding Product Options

    When selling items that include different options (various sizes or colors, for example) you can set up customization options for your item that will appear on the item's Product Page. Your buyers will then be able to choose from the various options when purchasing the item from your online store. When a buyer clicks on an item in your product gallery, a product page that includes all of your item details opens. The product page also includes any customization options that you have made available for that particular item. Your buyer can choose from the different options and then add the customized item to the shopping cart.

    You can add any two of the following four product options:

    • Size Buttons: Small buttons that can display up to four characters each. These are perfect for displaying available product sizes!
    • Color Buttons: Buttons that display any colors of your choosing.
    • Drop Down Menu: A drop-down menu of options for your buyers to choose from.
    • Message Box: A text box that allows buyers to write a short message to you when making a purchase.

    If your store has items that have several size options available, you can add size buttons to your product pages that allow your buyers to choose from the different sizes. You can also set a price variation for each of the size selections.

    Each button can display up to four characters.

    7. Under Title, in the second field, type a description for your button.

    The description appears when a buyer rolls over a button. For example, if you name your button S and make your description Small, when a buyer rolls over the S, a tooltip will appear with the word Small, indicating to the user that the S stands for Small. The description of the button that your buyer chooses will also be displayed in the shopping cart and during the checkout process.

    Important! The description appears in your merchant account and lets you know which option your buyer chose. Therefore it is highly recommended that you add a description!

    Your surcharge value indicates whether or not the price of the product will change when a buyer selects a particular option.

Similarly, you can set a discount for a particular option by setting the surcharge value to $ - 0.50.
