I am currently hosting my website elsewhere, but there is a limitation on customization, and I'm hoping Shopify could help.
I have a gift basket company, and although we have our standard products, I'd like to have the ability to create custom products.
Ideally the customer would have to choose from a variety of products in categories:
category 1 (choose one)
category 2 (choose one)
This way we could control the size of all products selected to ensure that it will fit in our dimensions and help in creating a minimum order price.
Does anyone have any experience or seen something like this? Any help would be great, we'd like to have something up ASAP.
Fortune Cookie Soap have a very nice "Create your own Gift Set" feature: http://www.fortunecookiesoap.com/products/create-a-set.
Strictly speaking, this isn't because of Shopify per se, but Shopify's API makes this type of thing a lot easier than other ecommerce systems.
