Order Options

From Configuration Menu, click Pricing and Promotins → Order Options

Order options are a way of offering customers extra products/services during checkout. This can be used as an upsell tool, to offer special packaging, etc. Order options are listed as separate line items on receipts.

From the order options page in the admin site, store admin can create a new option with the 'Add New' button, or click on existing order options in the list to edit them. The display order can also be set here. If all options are set to a display order of one, the options are listed alphabetically. Otherwise, they are listed in the order set by the store admin.
