Hi guys

This has been troubling me for a long time. I would like to create a custom product option to apply to multiple products.
I am trying to create a template to apply just to my “rings” I have over 100 different types of rings with different materials and gemstones. I just need a custom product option for ring size from “E-U1/2” that will be a pain to create a product options.

Is there a free or low cost way to add these to multiple products?

The only way we have found to easily do this is the Custom Options Template extension from Aitoc: http://www.aitoc.com/en/magentomods_custom_options_templates.html

$79 and it works really well.

I saw that but I really cannot afford that. Is it possible to create something like that with an attribute set? When I create an attribute set I have to create it in the bank end and not the front store. I just need the sellers to choose their ring size.

Honestly for what that extension offers, $79 is really cheap. If you are going to run a profitable store, you will have to make some small investments in these types of extensions.

There is really no way to easily create custom option templates without that extension.

I understand that, just starting out is tough I can admit that. I will do my best to implement something until I can afford that extension.
