You have variants, you have options... but now you can go one step further and allow your customers to totally build their own product!

Introducing for Shopify, the first ever 100% customizable product builder app!

You've probably seen something similar to this before on car dealership sites. Pick a car, pick a color, pick wheel style, pick additional options, etc. As you go through the image changes based on your selections. That's a product builder! And now you can offer this to your customers too!!

Live Examples:


Here are a couple examples of items people are already selling using the Product Builder app:

  • Custom built fishing rods

  • Custom built guitars

  • Custom built trophies and plaques

  • Custom designed clothing

  • Custom built tablet Kiosk

  • Custom built archery bow packages

  • Custom designed vinyl wall graphics

  • Custom built ladders

  • Custom built hair ties & head bands

  • The list goes on and on...
  • Here's How It Works.


    When using this app you first create steps, with options within those steps. Customers then "step" through the builder in a sequential manner going through each step and making a choice on each one. Each choice can be represented by a thumbnail and each time a different choice is made, the main preview can display a different image representing the current selection(s). This graphical process makes it very easy for your customers to build and see exactly what they want before buying!

    The options on the steps are created in the app and can be independent, or tied to an existing product variant in your store. This means it can track inventory for parts chosen in the build AND can change the price based off what options are selected!

    Add Conditions


    We built in some super fancy conditional logic options that are available if needed. Conditions can apply to entire steps, or even just the options within the step. For example let's say there's a certain choice, which when selected in Step 1, means there are fewer choices available in Step 2. You can add the conditions to make it so those choices in Step 2 won't show if they do not apply to the selection made in Step 1.

    2D or 3D!


    When your customer selects a choice an image appears in the preview panel. This can be a standard 2D image or a series of images that can create a 3D effect like this example. You don't have to use 3D images, but if you want to you can! In the app instructions page there's a list of awesome photographers that can take the 3D images for you for a very reasonable price.

    Inventory tracking


    If you like, when you create options in your steps you can link them with a specific product variant in your store. This will attach a price to this choice as well as track inventory. You can control exactly the way your builder handles inventory. For example, it can ignore inventory, hide options that have no inventory, show the choice but disable it, or allow it to be selected to show an “out of stock” message.

    Customize EVERYTHING


    There literally are no limits to what you can customize about the look of your builder. Of course, you can select from a few different existing themes, and as always, we've built in options to change basic settings like colors, fonts, text, backgrounds, etc, to easily make it match your website's theme, but if you know CSS you can take it a step further and totally customize the builder to look however you want it to.

    Common Questions

    Q. Does the app create actual products in my store?


    No, the app doesn't create any products it just creates a page and a builder on that page. Because it's a builder it can actually use many different products in the build but it doesn't actually create them. For example, if you were building a fishing rod the reel would be an existing product in your store, as well as the grip and the shaft. The builder app can use those three products in a "Builder" fashion. You don't have to use existing products though, you can create the options right in the app.

    Q. How will I know what options a customer selected?


    Every choice or selection that a customer makes in the process of their build will get attached to the order as product notes. So on the cart page, the customer's confirmation emails, your confirmation emails, and in your Shopify admin you'll be able to see all the options they chose.

    Q - Is there a liquid update to my store required?


    Yes, for this app to work properly on your theme there will be a fair amount of liquid that needs to be updated. If you're comfortable with that kind of thing, there are instructions in the app. If you're not comfortable with code and would rather leave it to the pros, no problem :-) We can do it for you! There will be a button in the app to request us to do it for you. There's a one-time charge for the install but don't worry, if for any reason you uninstall the app during the trial period, it's 100% refundable.

Right idea but far from perfect. There really needs to be a decent app on the marketplace that does what this says it does but unfortunately there just isn't. Bold once again has tried to push a product that does the bare minimum. The list of things wrong with this app is too long to post. I've tried several Bold apps and always seem to end up cancelling them due to limitation that they are unwilling to fix. Another sad day for Bold users.

The product builder app has been a lifesaver. Working with Shubhneet as been equally rewarding. We have asked so many questions and requests and she has not hesitated to help us out at any point. I am confident that if you need anything from them, they are more than happy to help you get it done. A+ in my book.

The app does not provide a amplified foto from the products, Just the thumbnails. It looks terrible!
I also have problems because all my products suddenly disappear from the preview, and the support they provide is just by email (the live chat does not work), it takes a long time for them to answer, and the team are clearly not qualified. They never seem to understand what you say, I always need to make a print screen to show them the issue, and it makes the process even more slow. They never gave me a solution of anything I asked until now.
Really disapointed...

Very misleading. They say it's super easy to do but as soon as you install it they pop up a full list of detailed techy instructions and then offer to do it for you for an additional $40. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a free 30 day trial. This is a scam!

I LOVE this app! It's opened up many more avenues in my e-commerce store. The support has been amazing and I would highly recommend this to 3 of my friends who are also business owners. It's one of the best app's I have come across. Thank-you. = Wicks and Stones Candles

Our experience with bold product builder has not been thoroughly positive. There are many issues when it comes to their conditional logic. It is very difficult to make changes once the conditional logic is made, it's quite finicky. Customer support is great, but it is a lengthy process to get help. The customer agents we worked with were at times vague, or did not fully understood the issue. We probably spent more time explaining issues than solving them. Bold also never got back to us on our custom build request.

Great App and support. We had an issue with the App working with one of the themes we purchased outside of Shopify and they fixed it all!

This app is EVERYTHING. It has totally changed the way we do business! I started a gifting company with my sister, ( happyboxstore.com ) and this has made it incredibly easy for potential customers to build their own gift!

It may not seem super user friendly at first (I'm not great at this stuff, so I had a VERY tough time in the beginning) BUT whenever I needed anything customer support CRUSHED it. I mean, really went above and beyond to help me out. The whole team at Bold is incredible, and I got to know a few by name--SHOUT OUT TO MY GURL MC (who's name I will pass on to my firstborn, for saving my site so many times.) But seriously she's a beautiful angel and has saved my company from total meltdowns–more than a few times. She and her team all beyond nice and so so friendly! It's usually a pain to chat with CS but honestly, I always look forward to it! <3 fan <3

This app is awful; extremely complex and not mobile compatible. DO NOT BUY THIS

A terrible App.
Not Mobile Friendly.
Overall look and feeling is beyond bad. It takes your images and makes them look pixelated.
We installed this on 2 sites. The second install that we paid for on this site was never completed and our money never returned. We keep getting a http 500 error message.
We spent a lot of time creating 3000+ images only to be let down by this app.
Before installing this app read through their reviews and look at the sites. No one seems to be using this app? Are these all fake reviews?
