Modified on Thu, 03 Nov 2022 at 04:20 PM


Through the frontend settings, Bold Product Options 2.0 allows you to change the way your priced options are shown on the product page.

To adjust your Frontend Settings, select Settings > Frontend Settings from within the Product Options app admin.

Price Display Settings (Premium)

Bold Product Options 2.0 can be integrated into the product price, or be displayed as an add-on. You decide how you'd like your options to display.

When selecting an option that affects how the pricing is visible on the product page, you must also install the necessary code.

Within the Price Display Settings, select your desired option.

    • Default: Priced options will show below the options.
      PO price display default
    • Class: This requires you to create a new element and place it into your theme files. It will show the priced option in your custom element, wherever you choose to display it.

    • Add to Price: When a priced option is selected, the product's price will update to reflect the total price of both the product and the option. This option requires additional code to be added to your theme files in order to function properly. For more instructions, please select the dropdown for the Add to Price Install Instructions, below.
