This article will show you how to add product Options and Variants to your listing on MyKiosk.online.
Well, product options are choices for your item like "size" or "color". Variants let customers choose between those choices using drop-down menus, check boxes, radio buttons, text boxes or text areas. We will show you each of these items and explain how each of them work. We'll also show you how to add them on your listings.
Lets say you sell t-shirts. You sell these t-shirts in different sizes such as SMALL, MEDIUM, LARGE and XL. So, Size is the Option and S,M,L,XL are the variants.
Variants can be add globally or on a per-product basis. We'll explain.
So lets add one...
This first page just list what type of "Option" (Color in this example) you want to add. The Variants tab will allow you to add the actual variations (Black, White and Pink) for the option.
To add additional variants (2) just click the "+" sign to keep adding them. Once you are done adding your variations for this option then click (3) Create. The new options will now be added to your listing. You can add many options for each product.
You will see "Modifier / Type" and "Weight Modifier / Type" variants here and feel free to check them out. These variants allow you to add extra cost to the variant such as a 2XL shirt cost $3 more so you can add this additional cost here. Or, a 3XL shirt weighs more so you may want to add extra cost for heavier items. This will start to make sense once you add the first option and see it on your listing.
To set a global product option for an individual product:
If you select the Apply as link check box, the selected product option will be added to the product as a link. This means that you cannot edit the option for the current product, but the added product option will reflect all the changes made to it on the Global options page.
Recommended: If you Do Not select the check box, the option will be copied to the list of product options for the product, and you will be able to edit its variants at any time.
Create a new product listing and go to the Options tab, you will see "+ Add global option."
