Variant and options apps

You can use a product options app to add customization variants and potentially charge extra fees depending on the options that are selected. In this case, you may want to collect a deposit for the core product and all of the options selected. This guide will teach you how to set this up.

Compatible options apps

These are our top 3 recommended options apps that work well with Downpay. There are many more that work, we just find these ones very reliable.

Dynamic Product Options
Infinite Options

Most apps that allow you to assign a product option to variants that already exists in your store will work with Downpay.

Any app using draft orders on the backend to add options to the cart and checkout to charge the extra fees will not work with Downpay at this time.
