It is recommended to have your choices added before you begin adding options. The choices are what the customer has available to select. For example:
- Product: T-SHIRT
- Option: What color shirt?
- Choices: Red, Black, Blue, Yellow, Green
When adding or editing choices, you will need to click the "Save" button before moving to the next tab, otherwise you will lose any changes that you have made on the current tab.
Like with the Product and Option setup, the Choice editor has multiple tabs to move through when adding choices. These tabs will allow you to...
- Apply a start and end date
- Display color swatch or image thumbnail
- Add pricing to the choice
- and more...
