Custom Options in Magento 2.0

Custom Options in Magento 2.0

Custom Options are an easy way to add product variations.

It’s not a convenient way to add variations if you need to track their inventory and need to add attributes for the variations. In this case, it’s better to use Configurable, Grouped or Bundle Products.

But if you simply want to add an option and don’t want to track its inventory, it’s the right way to do it.

Let’s take a look. You sell thermoses. And want to add a possibility to add bags and other options for your thermos. Such bags don’t cost much and usually don’t need to be tracked inventory.

Let’s start by creating a simple product. 1

After you’ve created a simple product, go to

Advanced Settings -> Custom Options and press “Add New Option”.

2

Enter the name of the option: Bag.

Select Input Type from the list:

3

In our case it’s a Yes/No question, so we select “Drop-down” and enter “Yes” and “No” as titles of your options.

If a customer selects “Yes”, it adds 1 dollar to the price.

4

You can add other Options. Let’s say you want to offer a list of features that a customer can add to the product:

  • a box of coffee (5 dollars)
  • a box of tea (5 dollars)
  • a box of sugar (2 dollars)

We add one more option: we press “Add New Option”.

We select “Checkbox” as Input Type. And enter these 3 options. In the “Price” column, we need to enter the price of each option.

We unselect the “Required” box.

5

After all we press the “Save” button.

And this is how it will look on Frontend:

6

After the customer decides to add all variations, general price will be of 23 dollars.

7

It is obvious that custom options can help to sell many things at a time. It’s a great trick that can augment your revenue.

  2. Hi,

    Do you know how to make it works with “Bundle Product”.

    When I add a simple product or a virtual product with Custom Options, the Cutom Options do not show up in the store front GUI.

    Thanks!
