How to display 'Build Your Own' selections in cart on a candy store site?

Hey there!

 

I'm currently trying to build an online store that sells sweets, fudge, American candy, and drinks.

 

I have a pick-and-mix pouch that is a "Build your own pouch" style.

 

I'm currently using the Shopify app called "Dynamic Product Options" and I'm having a bit of bother with it,

 

When a customer chooses their mix and clicks view cart, or goes to check out, the list that they have selected doesn't show up in the cart or checkout, so I can't see what they've chosen and neither can the customer.

 

Does anyone know if I need to purchase the higher tier for that to show? Or am I missing something?

 

I have the $19.00 version if that helps.

 

Also is there a way that I can make the list of sweets i the build your own section look more appealing? It's just check boxes and square images all over the place.

 

I'll also share some images if that will help too. One image is how I'm hoping for it to look like once fixed.

 

Thanks

Hi dear GraemeC 🙂

 

I think we might have the solution for you. We have this feature called the Collection Mix & Match and its Bundle Builder. Please take a look at the following sample: https://demo.fastbundle.co/pages/collection-bundle?b=237e4454-a8e1-49b1-876b-53c7b30a8882

You can create a collection of the products you want to offer and specify how many products should be chosen. All the items will be added to the cart in separate lines.

 

Find our app here. Trusted by more than 6000 active merchants 😉

 

Good luck

Hi @GraemeC 

 

Our app, Build Your Own Bundles can support building your own candy bag. All candies can be displayed on a single page. Here's sample bundle you can try. As you can see, the individual items are added to the cart.

 

We can also support tiered discounts. If you have multiple tiers, they can be shown in a single bundle.

Hey moossweets,

 

Yes only solved it about a month ago.

 

I tried the apps mentioned in replies but I couldn't get any of them to work the way I wanted them to.

 

The one that worked for me is variant option product options. There were alot of issue as it changed anything that had a varient on the website. It also created alot of error pages when a customer wanted to add to cart. But the developers were cool and sorted it out.

 

Did you start this business recently?

Hi Graeme,

 

 No we started our business during covid, but we never did the build your own pick n mix.  But we are having a relaunch and this was the biggest request from our customers.  But I have tried multiple different options but none worked how we wanted. Which is very frustrating to say the least. I did find one when our customers first asked for this option but off course I didn't save it or add it to our store (school boy error).  Now looking and cannot find it.  

 

I will certainly give this one a go and play around with it.  Hopefully this will be the option that helps us.

 

Thank you for the quick response and help.

Hey Allan,

 

So sorry for the late reply!

 

Yea I know how you feel most of the apps I used just weren't looking the way I wanted it to (like the app I sent you).

 

How did it go did you manage to get it working?

 

I think yous are actually live on tiktok as I type this haha.

 

Is there a way I could message you privately to ask a few question from business to business?

 

If not its perfectly fine!

Hi Greame,

 

No need to say sorry it's all good.

 

Yes I managed to get the app working which now we have implemented across a wider range of our products making our site more sleek and easier to use.  I didn't think it would work how I expected but it did.  I would have liked the option to allow customers to add plus 1 of an item but they don't do that. I did mail them, they suggested an alternative but when I trailed it, it was bulky and awkward to configure. So left it how it was, and it's working perfeclty.

 

So thank you very much for the help on this one.

 

I don't do tiktok only the wife haha,
