WP e-Commerce extension that allows you to add simple “product options” to products without having to create or manage variations.
- Upload the plugin to the
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Create your product options under the “Products” menu
- Assign product options to your products
- The options aren’t displayed on the product page
It’s likely that your theme doesn’t include the hooks you need. You’ll need to ensure that your theme contains the standard WP e-Commerce hook
“wpsc_product_form_fields_begin”. You can see the official WP e-Commerce version here, in wpsc-single_product.php here: https://github.com/wp-e-commerce/WP-e-Commerce/blob/3.8.14/wpsc-theme/wpsc-single_product.php#L77
- The options chosen are supposed to be displayed during checkout – where are they?
The current stable release of WP e-Commerce doesn’t have the hooks to allow external plugins to display info like this during checkout. They’re coming in a future version – watch this space
- Can I change the price charged according to the option chosen?
No, if you want the product options to affect stock, or pricing then you should use WP e-Commerce’s built in “Variations” functionality
- Where can I see which product options have been chosen
Product options are shown against the sale under Store Sales in your WordPress Dashboard menu
- Can I order the options as they’re shown to the customer?
Yes, install a taxonomy ordering plugin – I recommend https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/taxonomy-terms-order/ Once you’ve set an order in the admin area, that will be honoured on the front end.
