Custom option block

Note | Custom options uses line item properties to collect and display additional information in the cart and order details. Custom options does not support add-on pricing.

In the Product template, you can add Custom options to let customers personalize products or customize their order before updating their cart. For example, customers can enter personal text for engraving, click a checkbox to 'Agree' to terms, or add instructions to their order (like free gift wrapping).

This guide shows how to add five different types of options: single-line text, multi-line text, checkboxes, dropdown menus, and radio buttons. You can add multiple options of the same type or a combination. Any text and selected options will appear in the cart and order details.
