How to configure Optional products
Firstly, create a new product and configure optional products to it.
Go to Inventory > Master Data > Products > Create
So here we are creating a new product.
Now to add optional products we have to, first of all, enable it from the sales module.
Sales > Configuration > Settings > Product configurator
When we enable this a data will be added in the product form to add ‘Optional products’.
There we can add the Optional products, under the ‘Sales’ tab.
Then Save it.
Now let us go to our website to see how it works there.
First of all, we need to publish our new product on our website. For that, we need to go to the website and click on the “Publish” button.
Now select the product in the shop, website > Shop > Select product > click Add to Cart.
When we click on “Add to cart” a pop-up window will appear showing the Optional Products.
The products that appear along with a specific product and complement its sale are known as accessory products. The products that complement and accompany the purchase of a product are known as accessory products. The suggested sale is a traditional way of selling that a store owner persists in order to generate more company revenue. In this selling process, the store owner advises the consumer, the possibility of additional purchases and even proposes other items that could benefit the customer during terms of their future needs.
As an example, we can say that while we purchase mobile we are suggested to buy a mobile case, earphones, ear podes, power bank and so on.
Let’s see it’s configuration.
For that go to Inventory > Master data > Products > select product > Ecommerce tab
There we can set ‘Accessory Products’.
So here we have added the accessory products.
Now, let’s check how it is shown on the website when we add the main product into the cart.
After having added the product to the cart lets click on the button “Process to Checkout”.
Then a new window will appear.
So here we can see the suggested accessories shown. We can also add those to the cart.
Alternative products are those products that can be used in place of the other product. They can also be called substitute products. If we give substitute products to the customers, they will spend more time on the site.
Let’s see the configuration of Alternative products.
To add other alternative products go to, Inventory > master data > Products > Select product > Ecommerce tab > Alternative products
So here we have added Alternative products.
Now when we take the product in the online shop we also can see the ‘Alternative products’.
Now if we like the alternative product and select one among the alternatives the initial product will be replaced and we can add the selected product to the cart if needed.
