Options can be setup and applied to any product. For example, a shirt may be available in small, medium or large and shoes may be available in sizes 6 - 12. To add options to a product, simply edit your product and click the “options” tab, then click “Add New”.
This will open a new pop up where you can give the options a name, such as “Please select a shoe size” You can then define each option, along with any effects this has on price in the amount field. (Typing in 1, would add £1 to the product price. Typing -1 would reduce the price by £1. There is no need to type the currency in, this is automatically set by the account settings) Once you have created the option group, you can then apply it to that product by selecting it from the drop down. The option group can then be applied to any other product automatically from the drop down, there is no need to recreate it every time.
Once the option group has been applied to a product, you can also edit individual options from that product, such as entering stock levels, or changing the price amount, or even deleting an option entirely, this will only apply to that product and not affect others.
