@TyW could you please tag the relevant people in this matter. The original Shopify contributor has retired. Thank you!

 

I agree with all of the past poster for the past, almost, five years of post. This should be a standard feature.

We have a bakery and we sell Keto products and we need the ability for our customers to be able to choose ingredients.

Just how many Variants do you think I would have to make to come up with every single possible Pizza that a customer might want?

Just say we have 10 possible toppings. A customer can add none or all and any combination in between.

Simple solution is to have check boxes that allow multiple selection and increase the price for each selection.

It is insane to think that there is any rational programmer that would feel that this would not be a standard option for an E-commerce cart.

What is the reasoning from Shopify for not having this option? We deserve to know. Especially since it has been a feature request for so long.

Basically it comes down to Shopify does not add capabilities to their app if there exist a paid option. I suspect they are getting a percentage of all add-ons so it doesn't give them any incentive to give something away for free.

So, you will have to pay for this option, if you want it.

I am using "Upsell Product Add-ons" until I can migrate my site over to Magenta. It's not perfect but it works.

I will be moving my store to Magenta because of this. This feature is built into Magenta.

Good luck!

Are you seriously saying i need to pay app monthly fee to be able to add add ons for the products? Every single thing you need install some app and pay more! i pay now over 100€ month and what i get from that?? Most of the features are not even available to my country! 

I will not build my second store on Shopify for sure. They just want to suck your money for everything.

I have spent the last two weeks building my website which I am quite proud of, but I am so disappointed to find out one of my key features for a customer to build their own gift box which includes them picking products at different prices which will have over a 100 variants with the different sub headings doesn't seem to be a possibility. I have looked at lots of apps, finally found one added it to shopify to find that this too does not do what I want it to. I would like to have a gift box with a standard price and then when the customer picks different products with their own price to add to their gift box the price adds up as they go and the total is added up on the page before the cart. I have now spent a numerous amount of time on something that seems to be so easy to resolve. Buy yet I am going back to the drawing board. Not sure what to do as I wanted to launch soon.

It's 2021 and no response to this issue. No implementation. Nothing. The "Shopify experts"  aren't even replying to this thread anymore. It's a robbery. It's absolutely unbelievable that you cowards can't create a BASIC feature. You want to charge extra for EVERY. LITTLE. THING. What a scam Shopify is.
