What it Does
Option Sets allow you to build workflows using multiple sets of products or modifiers so you can setup complex combo selling and contextual pricing.
Getting Started with Option Sets
In this example, the Product with Option sets assigned is Burger Combo
- Burgers Option Set
In the example below the burgers are set up as Products in an Option Set. You can also attach Option Sets to each burger Product to further customize it within this combo. This is covered in our Going further with Option Sets Guide
- Chips Variant with Option Sets
In the example below we have sizes of chips set up as Variants. The Variant Products then have an Option Set for sauce options with the chips. These would be created as Modifiers in an Option Set. Option sets can only be applied to the Variant Products and not the Variant Template.
- Drinks Option Sets with Instructions
The example below demonstrates the different types of Drink Options with Instructions applied. The Drink options are Products in an Option Set with an Option set containing modifiers associated. These might be with Ice, no ice or extra ice options.
Option Sets allow you to create a workflow and organise options. In the meal example below, the Burger, Chips and Drinks are all individual products that can be distributed appropriately to production printers and reported as their own items and can have their own option sets if desired.
In the example below, you will see how a Combo can be setup and priced at $10 but then can also have options priced to add to the price of the combo when selected.
