Configurable Options

Add options which allow a customer to configure the Product to their liking before adding it to their Shopping Cart. Some examples of where this can be used are:

  • Customizing a specific attribute of the Product, such as it's size or color.
  • Providing an area for the customer to type a value or select a date.
  • Attaching other Products/accessories.
  • Selecting a quantity/weight.

Most of the available field types allow for the price of the Product to be adjusted according to the customer's selection.

Drop Down Option ($)

Add a dropdown list to the Product with a collection of options that may or may not affect the price. The example below allows the customer to select from different sizes of shoe. Selecting size 11 would increase the price by $10: Drop Down Option ($)

Short Text Box

Provide a text box for the customer to enter a single line of text.

Long Text Box

Provide a text box for the customer to enter multiple lines of text.

Price Box ($)

Allow for manual adjustment of the price. This is useful for Products that are restricted to Contact Groups (such as sales people) with permission to offer discounts.

Date Selection

Product Browse (Add-on Products)

Display a list of other Products that can be purchased alongside this one. The customer can choose one of the add-ons, or none, and the price will be adjusted accordingly.

Checkbox ($)

Allow the customer to toggle a price-change on or off. The example below would increase the price by $5 if the box were checked: Checkbox ($)

Radio Button ($)

Similar to the Drop Down Option, but provides the options as a collection of radio buttons instead of a list.

The first option will not increase the price, the second option will increase it by $100, and the third option by $500: Radio Button ($)
