The next step is creating and configuring the add-ons you want to insert in the group you have just created. Make sure you saved the group settings and click on the “Manage Add-Ons” button on the top of the page.Manage Add-OnsNow choose the type of add-on that you want to insert from the following ones:

  • checkbox
  • color
  • date
  • labels
  • multiple labels
  • number
  • select
  • radio button
  • text
  • textarea
  • upload

Types of add-on

Optionally, you can combine to the add-on “labels”,“description” and “image”.

To enable/disable the display of add-on details, go to “General” section of the plugin settings dashboard.

By setting the add-on as “required”, users cannot add the product to cart if they do not use the options related to the add-on.
When a “checkbox” type add-on is set as “required”, all its options must be selected by the user in order to add the product to the cart.

Set Dependencies

The view of the add-on can depend on two kinds of dependencies:

dependencies

  • Variation requirements: the add-on can only be selected if a specific product variation has been selected and specified in the “Variations Requirement” entry.
  • Options requirements: the add-on is only shown when the option specified in the requirements entry is selected by the user. If the user does not respect the requirement you have set, the add-on is not shown.

Sold individually

If you enable the “Sold Individually” option, the add-on price won’t change even if the quantity of the selected product increases.

The first X options free

You can decide that the first x options a customer chooses are for free. Example:

For the add-on “Pizza ingredients” with 4 options (sauce, peas, cheese, chips),
the customer can add 2 ingredients for free and the others are + € 0,50
In this case you would set an add-on price of € 0,50 and “First X options free” = 2.

Duplicate add-on

If you need to create an add-on with similar options, consider the possibility of duplicating an add-on.

From the page where all add-ons are listed, click on the duplicate icon as shown in the following image:
