Multiple sub-options for single item

Hi,

We are just about to launch our online candy store via Shopify, we are creating pick and mix candy, whereby the customer can select 9 options from a choice of 60 plus possible selections. We are offering this as a single 'product' with a number of sub-options. i.e. the 1kg Pick n Mix 'product' is $20, but I want the customer to have a list of up to 60 choices, where they can choose the quantity of each item totalling up to 9 items within the product.

For example, they choose the "1kg Pick n Mix" product. They then choose, Jelly Babies, Cola Bottles, etc etc to get to their 9 choices. Only when 9 sub-items have been chosen can they hit the add to cart or buy now button.

I hope this makes sense, I tried using variants, but have struggled to get the functionality as described above. Any work around or advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Pete & Jo.

Hi There!

So to be clear you need 9 dropdowns for example, where each dropdown will contain different options pertaining to the dropdown, for example:

  • Dropdown 1: Small, Medium, Large
  • Dropdown 2: Strawberry, Kiwi, Banana
  • Dropdown 3: Chocolate, Vanilla, etc..

Correct?

Hi JHKC,

Thanks for your response! Yeah, pretty much, but each of the 9 drop downs will contain the same 60 options. So in drop down 1, the customer can choose 1 of the 60 choices, in drop down 2, the customer can chose another 1 of the 60 options and so on until all 9 drop downs have a selection in (the customer could choose 2 or more of the same thing if they wish to make up their 9 selected options) once all 9 drop downs have a selection in them, the add to cart or buy now button can be clicked.

Hope this all makes sense?

Cheers,

Pete.

Yes clear!

Shopify restricts you to 3 Dropdowns and a total of 100 Variants. 

You have to use something like that: https://apps.shopify.com/advanced-product-options to overcome this limitation. You can then add as much as you want. They can help you with the setup should you need it!

Cheers!
