How do I add this custom option to my product?

Hi All,

 

I would like to add a custom selection box to this product that gives the client the opportunity to select the number they wish to have on their product. Numbers starting from 001 - 100

 

Anyone know how I can do this? 

 

And, if a certain number gets purchased can it be removed from the selection automatically?

 if you are not a coder i think the best option is product options by bold in the app store, if you are a dev you can do this with a custom options selector assign the custom options 001-100  via javascript loop 001 - 100

Hi, @MrVanderwagen 

 

Happy to help explain some options here! 

One option is through some custom coding on your store, you can add a customization information box to your product page. We have an advanced tutorial on how to do this linked here. Note that this is an advanced tutorial, not supported by Shopify. If you do decide to follow the tutorial, make sure to duplicate your theme first so you always have a back up copy.

I'll mention that this tutorial doesn't walk you through how to make the customization disappear based on quantity.  If you need assistance implementing this tutorial or making further coding adjustments, you can hire a developer or Shopify Expert.

Another option is to use a third party app that allows your customers to customize their products. One free option is Variant Option Product Options. Another app, with more features, but is paid, is called Product Options and Customizer. If you'd like to look for other options, try searching "Product options" in the App Store! 

Let us know how this goes!

Since you can only have 100 variants per product if the chosen numbers/design dictates the  inventory then simplest approach to have automatic inventory tracking is to make separate products for each size with it's only option being the number.

This will also let you add photography of each numbered shirt if applicable.

 

Then make a collection for shoppers for selecting their size to go to the appropriate product.

Optionally making product page redirects to point to that collection.
