___________________________________________________________________________

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.

This is a phenomenal app that builds in critical functionality for any store with customizations or add-ons that customers should progress through in steps. We use it to select engraving plates and then enter the engraving message to be applied to the product. Simple to use, great support.

Awesome app. Perfect for my customers to build their own video packages. Amazing support and the install was fast!

This is the APP I've been looking for for 2 months! I just scrapped our WooCommerce store for a much more stable Shopify based store for our furniture site. WHF furniture is configurable so that you can literally design your own furniture by choosing a top, design, accents, stain color and legs/base style, etc. Well some products end up having more than 8700 possible configurations, which a pretty heavy load on the database. Bold's Product Builder App solved all my issues in 20 minutes. Thank you!!!

Excellent app that gives you options that no other app on Shopify does.

Positive:
- Well worth the price.
- Great customer service with fast replys.
- Tons of options and customization capabilities.
- Good tutorials.
- Works flawlessly (so far).

Negative:
- Product Builder is separate to Shopify's collections which means you can't choose a product from your Collection-page and then customizing it.
- Takes a few hours to get the hang of it (no biggy).
- Difficult to fully match you themes layout with the app.

I give it 5 starts due to its relatively easy use compared to the amount of customization, the customer service included and the seemingly flawlessly operation. I was not able to use the app myself but not because of the app itself. I just had different needs.

It takes time to understand and is doable. I am not an online whiz and I did not get frustrated using this application to generate the level of customization that I need. The excellent customer service definitely helped me out.

Amazing app. Custom designs are our bread-and-butter -- this app is simple to use, and creates the functionality we need. Beautifully.

It just plain WORKS.
