Go to a product. Click into it to edit it. Click on “Product Options” in the “Product Management:” payne.

Option Group Name: Something for the administrators only, just chose something that describes the variations. I usually use all caps sepearated with a underscore, and I keep it short.

Option Text: What the customer sees to tell them there options.


Click Update Option Group when done.

Follow the screen below to fillout a sample of colors for a proudct.

Option Group Type: Stick to Varients. Just be sure all the prices of the varients are the same or you will have to see another tutorial.

Options List: This is the meat. Type something and press the plus icon to accept what you typed. Change the Orderby field to 1,2,3. 1 is whatever one you want first, ect.


 Once you make your screen look like the one above be sure to click “Add Option Group.”

To see what you have done: Follow the link automatically provided for you upon finishing a variant set. OR click on “Product Options” in the “Product Management:” payne, under “In this section” where all of the things to do with the product you are currently editing are.
