Options and Modifiers

You are here:

In this article you will learn:

Option Groups are choices tied to any item. Example: if you are selling ice cream as dessert, then the client can choose between these flavours: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or combination of them. They are all options. The combination of chocolate and vanilla can be a more expensive option than the simple vanilla. Your client can choose their favourite option (flavour) and the price will reflect that.

Modifier Groups are additions, modifications or exclusions that you can add to any item. Example: client can choose the chocolate ice cream, but he wants toppings. Toppings like: shaved chocolate, caramel sauce or sprinkles, are the modifiers. You can set their price and configure them easily.
