We have made a change to the Product Options Dropdown section of the catalog pages. You can now make the product option dropdown selections mandatory and your clients will need to select an option before they are able to add the product to the cart.
Some of our users had asked that we make the drop downs mandatory as the clients would forget to click on the drop down and it would default to the first option in the list. You can now choose to make the selection mandatory and it will not allow the product to be added to the cart without a selection being made:
When your customers are checking out on the website, they will now see a little indicator that the selection is mandatory next to the Option Name, and if you do not select the required option, a message will appear letting them know that they must “provide all required fields before adding this item to the cart”.
If you already have products created with options and you’d like to make them mandatory, simply go and edit your product and click on the box underneath the option you want to make required.
As always, our support team is available to assist with any questions you might have - just click the Support link in the upper right of the website builder.
