Items have variations and to the buyer, they appear as a drop-down menu for each item. Here is how to make variations for an item:
- The item must be of either a Physical type, or a Service. Donations and Digital Downloads do not have variation drop-downs. [let us know if you would like variations for donations or digital downloads]
- In the third section of editing your item (the bar titled "More Options"), check the box allowing you to add "Dropdown-Options" to your item. A link will appear titled "+ Add Another Variation". Click it to add as many variations as you would like.
- Similar to above, a variation will have a name (e.g., "Small", "Medium", "Large"), it's own price (e.g., $10, $12, $14), and inventory can be tracked individually (e.g., "we have 5 small shirts, 2 mediums, and 4 larges"). You can also select the inventory is unlimited for a particular variation.
- Click "Save" and voila! Your item has different variations your buyers can select from a drop-down.
It should be noted that when variations are added, the general price set at the top of your item is overruled; your item will surface with the price of the first variation.
