  • Sell 100% customizable products that your customers actually build themselves!

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

  • 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 and 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 select(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 choice 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 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 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 theme. 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 then 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 customers 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 that is 100% refundable.

The app itself is good and brings much needed functionality to Shopify however potential customers should be aware of a few bugs with this application and the lack of action, in my experience, in resolving them to date.

I spent a considerable sum with Bold customising the app for my store but I have come across some crippling bugs. Having raised these issues my tickets were closed without resolution and merged into another ticket. Despite multiple attempts for a response that ticket is still open two months later and I have received no update.

Bugs happen, thats understandable, however high impact issues in this case have not been worked on and have been left as known issues with no updates as to when they will be resolved.

My main issue is that when updating products set within my builders they frequently do not save and they automatically duplicate the product description text, often 100 times! Also be aware that when updating product pricing in Shopify this does not flow into the products setup within the builder - this must be done manually (to show the correct price within the builder). This bug means that a manual update that should take a few hours (e.g. to update prices) can take days, literally. It is becoming unworkable and there has been no sign of a solution from Bold to date.

So be aware, if you have more than 100 products in your store, this app could become a real issue for your business until these bugs are actually addressed by Bold.

If these were fixed, I'd highly recommend it. As it stands, it comes with a few health warnings attached! Others seem to have had great support from Bold but in this case we have been let down so far - I hope I can update this review with more positive news at some point soon.

Absolutely awesome app. I had them install it for me, it was done in 48 hours. Extremely happy with the results

So far, I'm giving Bold Apps a 5-star rating for their generous support assistance in getting Product Builder running on our site. A special thanks to Cory at Bold for his hands-on help. I'll update this review after we've had a chance to set up and test Product Builder.

Great app! We are very pleased with the results. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself at www.neoscustomsuits.com

Great service too. They went out of their way to modify the settings so the app looked even better. I highly recommend it.

This app is excellent for building custom products or using as a guided product selection tool, and is an essential element of our web business. The app is relatively self explanatory, full CSS editing allows us to customise almost all the visual elements. Support has been excellent via the website, email ticketing and a one-on-one webinar with Cory (thank you Sir!) answered all my questions. Everything - so far - has been very positive.

The best customer service of any App developer I have ever experienced. Would highly recommend Bold as well as this excellent app. It has big potential as well as been very easy to use once set up.

wonderful product. Excellent customer service and support!

My company had the MOST AMAZING CUSTOMER SUPPORT from Michael at bold apps. He answered all of my questions and was quick to respond. I had a few styling issues when I installed the app but Michael was able to quickly fix them at no cost! He even helped out with our checkout page and added some much needed css. Overall the app was easy to use and the customer support made my experience painless. I couldn't be happier with the app or the customer service!

Great app' but can get quite complex if you have a large number of options - particularly images. Work on simplifying this with a duplicate feature or bulk upload option would make a huge improvement.
We use it to configure a custom built fly rod or kit and has been customised to integrate with inventory which seems to work well

This makes product customisation accessible to anyone who wants to start an innovative online product customisation store. At ownsewn.com we are bootstrapping our business and starting with a very small budget. This app helps us to keep adding as we go without lots of expensive web developer involvement.
