,/A>Overview Package options allow a site owner to:

  • Offer customers a choice (which does not affect the price) from a list of selections
  • Add a text field which allows a customer to type in actual information needed to complete the purchase
When purchasing product, a customer will be presented with a drop-down menu which contains a list of choices. The customer will be able to choose one option from this menu.

If the text field option is used, the customer will see a named label (such as "Special Instructions:") with an empty text area below. A customer purchasing the product will be able to type comments, special instructions, and/or specific details related to the purchase.

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.
