Managing Product Options in Quick Shopping Cart

There are two Product Types in Quick Shopping Cart® cart that let you add options:

  • Standalone — Single products that do not require multiple item numbers (SKUs) to track inventory. For example, you can add gift-wrap as an option to a Standalone product.
  • Configurable Variation — Products that require multiple item numbers (SKUs) to track inventory. For example, you can add multiple color and size options for T-shirts that you sell on your online store.

You do not have to assign any options to a standalone product. However, you must assign at least one configurable option to products with configurable variations.

For examples about using Standalone and Configurable Variation options, see Tips for Using Options in Quick Shopping Cart.
