Populate options

In the Populate options, you will be able to add as many options as you wish. For example, if you choose a Label/image options set to display the available pizza toppings, every option will be one topping.

To add more options in this set, just click on + Add a new option:

Add new option

The Populate settings allow enabling or disabling every option and vary based on the type selected. Let’s go through all of them one by one below.


Checkbox

As opposed to radio buttons, checkboxes let your users select more than one option for the same set. For every option you can set:

  • Selected by default
  • Label
  • Tooltip
  • Description
  • Image
  • Price: the option price can be calculated as a fixed or percentage amount from the product price:
    • product price doesn’t change – set option as free
    • increase the product price (on-sale available as well)
    • discount the product price
  • Required: if enabled, the customer cannot add the product to the cart without entering a text in this option.

Example: add extra paid options to your custom box delivered at home like order tracking and insurance.

By its very nature, users can only select one option in a radio input. Use checkboxes if you want to let users select multiple options instead.
