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 for all 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 support add-on prices with our Advanced Plan.
  • Images aren’t associated with variants (they don’t change when the variant is selected)
  • No inventory control.
  • Can be hidden with conditional logic (Advanced Plan)
  • Can have multi select options.
