You can view this guide if you wish to explore this section in more detail. 

Options type—select how the options and variants of this product appear and work on the store front (we recommend leaving options setting as they are by default): 

Simultaneous or Sequential 

  • For products with various options to choose, i.e. can the customer choose different combinations of the options or in a set sequence?

Options are specific properties of the product that a customer can choose when making a purchase. For example, options for clothes may include colour and size. The variants of those options would be red/green/blue and S/M/L/XL/XXL  respectively. 

Exceptions type—select a type of the product option exceptions: 

Forbidden—you’ll be able to specify Forbidden combinations  on the Options tab. Customers won’t be able to purchase a product when they choose a forbidden combination of option variants. 

Allowed—you’ll be able to specify Allowed combinations  on the Options tab. Customers will only be able to select these combinations of option variants. 

Gift Certificate Product If the product is a gift certificate for your services, selecting Yes will allow customers to digitally send this as a gift. For more details on this follow This Guide.

Pricing / Inventory 

CODE—the identifier of the product that you use in your store (a stock keeping unit or SKU); it is used to distinguish products from each other during import, so that the data would be saved to the right product. 

List price—if this price is higher than product’s  Price, then a discount label will be displayed for the product. 

In stock—the number of products in the stock. Products that are out of stock can’t be bought, unless you enable the Allow negative amount in inventory setting under  Settings  General  Catalog

Zero price action—Be sure not to create your product without a purchase price. 

Inventory—the way of tracking the inventory of the current product: 

  • Track with options 
  • Track without options 
  • Do not track 

If a product is tracked with options, you’ll need to specify the number of in-stock items individually for each combination of option variants. 

  • Minimum order quantity—the minimum number of items that a customer can buy at a time. This number will appear on the product page on the storefront, right after the product price. 
  • Maximum order quantity—the maximum number of items that a customer can buy at a time. 0 means no limit. 
  • Quantity step—determines the step by which a customer can increase or decrease the number of products in cart. 

If the minimum order quantity is 3, the maximum order quantity is 9, and the quantity step is 3, then a customer will be able to purchase 3, 6, or 9 items in one order. 

  • List quantity count—the maximum number of choices in the Quantity drop-down list. It comes useful when you set a quantity step and when there are a lot of items in stock.
