This feature allows you to set up an additional input field for your customers to fill in with any amount. This amount will be added to the product’s total amount and is not influenced by choices your customers select when customizing the product.
Please note! This type of custom options conflicts with the following:
— the ‘Bundle Builder Mode’ feature,
— using Pre-generated Variants.
Please keep this in mind when configuring your product. Using more than one of the features mentioned above at the same time in the same product will lead to errors and/or unexpected performance.
Now, let’s see how we can enable this feature.
Additional Price field is a type of Custom Option, so first, add a new Custom Option to the desired Step.
(adding a new custom option. this button is located at the bottom of each Step)
A new window will pop up. Let’s focus on the basics for now: fill in the Title and scroll down a bit and choose the proper type—Additional Price Field.
(filling in the Title of our custom option and choosing its type)
Great! Save your progress by clicking the ‘Save Custom Option’ button in the upper right corner of the page.
Now let’s see it in action. Turn the ‘Admin Mode’ off to get a preview of your product. The custom option we’ve just created by default has one choice in it—it’s an input field with the following features:
- min value is 0;
- max value is 999999;
- only integer numbers are allowed.
(turning admin mode off)
(Additional Price Field custom option and its choice)
The amount that your customer will enter will be simply added to the final price of the product. It does not depend on the combinations of choices or the quantity of the product.
(the amount is simply being added)
A few things to remember:
- when setting up Additional Price field, please make sure nothing conflicts with the feature;
- the entered amount is simply added to the total price.
