Display Name:

This is the name of the option value, and will be seen by the customer.  If you are creating an option for sizes, you can create your first value and call this "Small".

Value:
This is the name of the option value, and will be seen by the administrator.  You can reuse the "Display Name" for this field.

Null Item:
This is an item that cannot be selected.  A value of "(Please make a selection)" is often entered so the customer knows to make a choice.

Set As Default Item?:
If enabled, this option will be already selected in the list.  It is often used in conjunction with a "Null Item" so let customers know to make a choice. Only one option value may be set as the default item.

Image URL:
This is the URL for the option image.  Note: right now this field is broken.  If you wish to show an image of your options, they can be entered either as an additional image, added in the Long Description field for the product, or entered in a HTML Area box (advanced).

Price Adjustment:
This allows you to adjust the in-store price of the product for this option. 

If your products have different prices based on their size, typically you would set the site price using the smallest value.  For example, if you are selling a leather coat and the small size is $100, the medium size is $150, and the large size is $200, you would set the site price to $100, and the price adjustment for the small value would be $0.  The price adjustment on the medium value would be $50, and the price adjustment for the large value would be $100.

Cost Adjustment:
This allows you to adjust the cost of the product for this option.  This option is generally not necessary to fill in.

Weight Adjustment:
If you are using real-time shipping, or shipping by weight, you can either add or subtract weight of the product for this option.

Shipping Cost Adjustment:
This allows you to adjust the product's shipping for this option.  This is commonly used as a handling fee for heavy items.

Accessory Product SKU (Accessory Options):
Enter the SKU number for the accessory.  If you do not know, you can find an accessory by typing in part of the product name in the "Search By" field, and press the “Find” button. You can also change the search criteria if you like.  To show all of your products, press the "Show All Products" link.  If the search results contain more than one page of products, you will have additional page numbers that you can click on above your available products.

To add an accessory, checkmark a product, set the default quantity of the accessory, and press the "Select" button.
