To assign product options to your product, go to catalog > Products add a new product or edit an existing with the pencil icon, then options tab.

To assign:

2. Select your option name, if you want product options to be optional select “No” for required. Then select:

  1. The option value (we chose blue)
  2. Quantity(optional): If your option has a stock amount
  3. Subtract Stock(optional): subtracts from product main stock in data tab
  4. Price(optional): If your product option has an additional cost. If the cost of the option is More, select the + icon from the drop down and input the added amount, for example if the product price is $10 and the option “blue” is $5 more input 5 the customer will see the product price increase to $15 when they select “blue”. If the cost of the option is Less, select the – icon from the drop down and input the difference, for example the product price remains $10 and the option “blue” is $5 less. Input 5 in the product option price, the will customer will see the product price decrease to $5 if the option “Blue” is selected.
  5. Weight(optional): Same as the above price, enter the added amount if the weight increases which is 5 which will result in 15lbs(product weight + option weight). If option weight decreases enter the difference which in our scenario is 5, which will result in 5lbs(product weight – option weight).
