The Yola Online Store is a great tool with many options to help you present products and sell them online. One of the coolest features is that it allows you to customize your product options. You can offer options for your products, set price differences for different options, add text boxes for customer notes, have drop-down menus with options, and other customization.

This allows the Yola Online Store to be customized for almost any kind of business, even a restaurant. You can set up your store to process to-go orders that your customers can place online.

For example, let's say you own a sandwich shop. You can list the varieties of sandwiches you have available, take special notes for food allergies, or offer different breads and other options. You can even customize options to be different prices.

Here's how to get started:

1. Log in to My Yola.

2. Click on "Online Store" in the left-hand menu.

3. Click on the pink "Add/Edit Products+" button, and create a new product (e.g. Sandwich).

4. In the "Product" box, click on "Options".

5. Decide what you want your option to do and be called and click on "New Option".

6,.Complete the title (e.g., "Bread").

7. Select the input type:
-Select — drop-down menu with option values (e.g., "yes" or "no" for a gift-wrap option).
-Radio — radio-buttons with option values (e.g., "small, medium, large").
-Date Picker — an input box with the popup calendar to select a date.
-Text Field and Text Area — one line and multi-line input boxes to enter any text (e.g., if a customer wants to add substitutions or allergies).
-Upload file — allows a customer to attach files to his/her purchase (e.g., if you're selling t-shirts and customers can upload their own designs)

8. Click on "New Selection" and then complete the text box under the "Title" column (e.g., "Wheat bread").

9. Set the price modifier if applicable (e.g., if there is a price difference between this and other options).
-Column 1
"+" adds the amount to the base price.
"-" deducts the amount from the base price.
-Column 2
"$" - adds/deducts the amount as money.
"%" - adds/deducts the amount as a percentage.
-Column 3
Enter the value (money or percentage dependent upon your selection in column two).
-Deflt (default)
If you have more than one selection, then you will need to choose which one is the default one.

10. Click "Save".

If you want more than one selection for each option, just repeat steps 9 and 10 above. You can also add more than one option, by starting from step 5 and going through the process again.

I would encourage you to take a look at the flexibility that the Yola Online Store offers as almost every aspect can be customized to meet your needs!
