As an example, the options feature can be used to offer customers a choice of colors or sizes, or a text field can be created which allows a customer to type in comments. Any number of options can be set up, as long as the choices do not affect the selling price of the product.
Use the package option administration page to add, delete or modify options associated with an package. This feature allows customers to select options from a pre-defined list of choices.
How Do I Use It?
Click on the main "Ecommerce" link at the top of any main administration page.
Click on the "Product Catalog Management" text link to load the product catalog management page. You will see the following screen:
Access the package management page by either creating a new package or by selecting a package to edit from the package drop down menu. The package management page will load in a new browser window.
Click on the "Options" text link located at the top of the administration window. You will see the following screen.
If necessary, more than one text area may be added. To add another text field, click on the "New Text Area Option" button, and repeat the steps above.
Once the page reloads, replace the default option name "New" with any desired name (for example, "Color" if you wanted to present a choice of color).
In the empty field next to "values", type in the first value (for example, "Red" if one of the options for your choice of color was red), and click the "Add" button. Add as many values as desired by repeating this process.
To delete an existing option set, click on the "Delete" button located beneath the option Id number.
To change the ordering of any option set (that is, which one will appear first, which will appear second, and so on), click on the "Up" or "Down" arrow button located beneath the "Option Id" number. Repeat this process until all option sets appear exactly as they should be displayed in the product catalog.
To change the name of any option set, type over the existing name, and click the "Update" button.
To delete an existing value within an option set, highlight the value and press the "Remove" button located to the right of the value list.
To re-order any values within an option set, highlight the value to move by clicking on it from the list of values. Use the "Up" or "Down" arrow button to move the value. Repeat this process until the value list is ordered as it should be displayed in the catalog.
To change the name of any value used in an option set, delete the value, then add a new one. Click the "Update" button to apply any changes before closing the item options window.
