Options gives merchants the power and flexibility to create a truly dynamic online shop. This article will teach you how to create custom options for your products.

To understand this idea better, let’s follow with an example; OnlineArt sells art prints, since you sell prints you need to specify the sizes and quality paper available to your item. Customers can purchase prints with different paper and sizes. In other words, Options allow you to make products that are unique and individualized that would add description to a product.

Be sure to set a proper Unique Name because it can only be set once. Name will be shown to the user in the pick-list. Use ( +/- ) signs if you want to add or subtract a value to the original price.
