Product Options

You may want to provide some options for your customers to choose from when purchasing products, such as whether the product should be gift wrapped or not. These are distinct from product variations and SKUS. Product variations and SKUS are for when each options requires you to stock different products as they are different sizes or colours. Product options are intended for times when you would like to offer the customer an option which could be applied to any variation of the product at the time of sale, such as gift wrapping, what kind of box it comes in or whether the customer would like to purchase an extended warranty.
