How to add/edit Product options



Firstly lets explain some of the terminology

"Options" are the attribute titles, things like Colour, Size,

"Values" are attribute values. so things like S, M, L, XL, Black, Red, White


Option = Size

Values  =  White, Black and Red etc


To assign an Option (and related Values) to a product follow these steps


1. Click Options tab 


2. Select Option from drop down eg Colour

or 3. If Option is not present in drop down then use "plus" icon to add new Option eg Size

It will then be present in drop down list to select


4. Select Option Value from drop down eg Black

or 5. If required Option Value is not present in drop down then use "plus" icon to add new Option Value eg Red

It will then be present in drop down list to select


6. Price differential

If this type of Option Value has an additonal cost eg Black costs more

then select "+" sign from drop down, if it costs less then select "-" icon

If no price differential leave blank


7. Add price differential eg if Black is $50 more expensive

enter 50 in the field so just use numbers only

Note: this price must be ex-tax

If no price differential leave blank


8. Enter quantity of Option

Eg 5 x Black, enter 5 here


Click Assign button to assign that Option to the Product


Once you have assigned an Option eg Colour, it will move the Option up in the active Option area
