Basics | How Do I Add Custom Options to My Products?

Modified on Thu, 23 Jan 2020 at 05:32 PM

Sometimes you may want to offer your customers the ability to customize a arrangement on your website. Here is how you can add options to your products!

Start by going to Products > Products > Website Products in your Floranext dashboard and finding the product you'd like to update.

Click the Edit button to the right of the product.

Scroll down to find Product Options and click the blue button that says Add More Custom Options.

First thing you will do is title the option in the Title field. For this tutorial we will give our customer the option of three different balloon colors, so we'll set the title as Color Options. (You may want to add Size, Flavor, Flower Preference, etc.)

Now we need to select the Input Type:

For this, you can give your customer various options but the three you are most likely to use are Area, Radio Buttons, and Checklist.

Area: This gives your customer a blank text field that they can type anything they want into. If you want to give your customer unlimited options, this is the best one to choose.

If you have a limited supply (say we only have blue, yellow & green balloons), you would choose Radio Buttons or Checkbox. That way you can specify exactly what kind of supplies you have to offer.

Checkbox: This allows users to select multiple colors among the options offered. For example, we will give them the option of blue, yellow & green balloons. The customer can select one, two or all three of these colors for their arrangement!

Radio Buttons: This makes the customer choose one choice among all the options. For example, they can choose either an all-blue, all-green or all-yellow arrangement, no mixing and matching.

For this tutorial, let's select Radio Buttons so I can tell customers exactly what kind of balloons I offer.

Now click the green button that says Add New Row and enter the various options that we have to offer.

In this example I am not adding a Price because once I add these options to my product, the price will automatically be factored in based off of what I set the product's original price at.

(For example, if the price of the bouquet is $39.99, then when these options are added the price of the bouquet will still be $39.99)

If you would like to add a product ID for each of these entries, you may do so as well.

Once you've completed all of your options, click on the green "Save Product" button at the top.

That's it! Now when you navigate to this product on your website, you will see the options that your customers will be offered when purchasing their products.
