The ↗ Addons tab of your Vendor dashboard is where you can add paid or free global addons to your products, using several options like radio buttons, checkboxes, drop-down fields or custom text inputs. When a customer is viewing your product, they will be able to select from the various addons to add to their order. You can create ↓ global or ↓ individual addons.

Note: You must add a name for each option, so the information shows when viewing the order and it is passed through in the confirmation email to the customer.

  Since there are quite a few settings, here are a few helpful explanations: Addon settings:

  • Name: Add a name for your addons to differentiate from other addons. It will not be visible on the website. By default, this is filled in for you as “Add-on Group #3”.
  • Priority: If there are multiple addons, this number will determine the order in which addons are displayed. For individual add-ons this number will be 10.
  • Product Categories: Add the product category you want this addon to be applicable to. This will help with seasonal and time-specific addons.

Addon types:

  • Multiple choice: Shows a list of options the user can choose from. Display as dropdowns, images, or radio buttons.
  • Checkboxes: Shows a checkbox or checkboxes that can be ticked/unticked by a customer.
  • Short text: Shows a textbox where customers can enter either any text, just letters, just numbers, letters and numbers, or an email address only.
  • Long text: Shows a text field where users can write multiple lines of text (character limit possible).
  • File upload: Allows users to upload a file.
  • Customer-defined price: Shows a field where users can enter a numerical value that is added to the product price.
  • Quantity: Shows a spinner where users can input a number (quantity limit possible).
  • Heading: Adds a heading between add-ons to group them into sections.

Other settings:

  • Title: Format the title as a Label or Heading, or hide it.
  • Add a description: Displays more information about the add-on underneath the heading.
  • Required field: Prevents product from being added to cart if an option is not selected.
  • Options: Add a label for each option as well as a price, if needed. Calculate the price as flat-free, Quantity based or Percentage Based. To remove an option, click the X button.

 

Individual product addons

Global addons are applicable to all of your store’s products, but you can create addons for individual products as well. To create an addon for an individual product, simply click a particular product lisitng to edit it. Scroll down to the “Add-ons” section and edit those settings to create an addon that is unique to that product. The addon settings that you need to configure are exactly the same as the global settings above.
