What do the "How do you want to handle quantities" options mean?

Created by Brett Mikulik, Modified on Thu, 03 Nov 2022 at 03:44 PM by Brett Mikulik

Overview

When you setup your product options and use the Adjust price selection, you can choose one of 5 ways to handle the quantities.

Select Show Advanced Settings from within the app admin while you are creating or editing an option to view these options.

Select an option below to view more information about each.


Option quantity matches product quantity

When using this selection, the number of products the customer has chosen will determine the number of options that are added (IE. 1 product = 1 option).

The quantity and price will display in the checkout as a total for the product combined with its option, and the subtotal will show the total of all products and options combined as one amount.

Example - Product Page

The Total Extras will display 1x the option price even if the quantity selector is 1 or more.

Customer can choose option quantity

The customer can select the number of options they receive (IE. 1 product can come with more than 1 option).

The quantity and price will display in the checkout as a total for the product combined with its options, and the subtotal will show the product totals and the options totals as two separate amounts.

The quantity entered will be multiplied based on the quantity of base product chosen.

Example - Product Page

The customer has the ability to enter their desired quantity of the priced option.

This will not add quantity to the core product.
