In the first section it will show you the product options you set up in Shopify’s backend, we call these Shopify Options.

Shopify Options use  Shopify’s variant system which you use in Shopify’s backend (normal products). Think of it as our app styling the native options you already have.

  • They limit each product to a max of 3 options and 100 variants.
  • Allow for custom pricing for all variants.
  • Images associated with variants (so they change when a variant is selected).
  • And inventory control.
