Create a customized variant

When you create a product with variants, you can choose between a simple variant, an option or a customized variant.

This last option allows you to customize your variant precisely.

To create a customized variant, here are the steps to follow:

  1. Go to the "Variants" tab of the desired product page, click on "Manage variants" then "Add a variant" and "Create a new variant".
  2. Enter the title of the variation (this name will allow you to find your variation later if you want to apply it to several products).
  3. Then fill in the second title which concerns the display on the site. You will be able to describe your variations to your potential customer (Example: "Choose your size").
  4. Confirm this first step.
  5. Then add the different choices and click on "Create a customized variant".

You will then be able to manage the display of your variants on the site.

  • If you only offer one choice to your customer, you can present the variation as a drop-down menu or an option button.
  • If you accept several possible choices, then you can opt for a box to tick.

You can, then, define the different parameters to be taken into account in each choice of your variant:

  • The weight
  • The reference
  • The photo
  • The price
  • The stock

☝️ Good to know

If you decide to manage the stock, you will have 2 choices:

  • The classic stock management allows you to automatically deduct the quantity of products sold with each order. This is the solution that is used in 95% of cases.
  • The global quantities management allows you to define a general quantity (example: 100 units) and a quantity to deduct for each choice (example: choice 1 - 20 units / choice 2 - 35 units...).

Finally, you will be able to define the options to activate on your variant:

  • If your variant is mandatory or not.
  • If your customer has the right to add a quantity on each choice of your variant or not. In this case, you can define a minimum (for example: 1) and a maximum (for example: 10).

These different parameters are saved for this product, but it is quite possible to use the same variant (same choices, same titles...) with a different configuration for another product.
