What is the difference between virtual options and shopify options?

We have two types of options:

1. Shopify options use Shopify’s variant system which you use in Shopify’s backend (normal products)

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

2. Virtual Options let you get past the option/variant limits of Shopify options,

  • They don’t support custom pricing.
  • Images aren’t associated with variants (they don’t change when the variant is selected)
  • Or inventory control.

We are working on adding custom pricing for virtual options.
