Blank Products in Stores

Purchase Options for Blank Products in Stores

In order to display blank products, you must ensure that the blank product is assigned to the store from the Product Manager.


In Manage Products, find the items you wish to have in your Store. Select them by checking the box on the left. In the Select Action dropdown, select Assign to Store. Choose the Store and click Apply

Once your blank product(s) are assigned to your store, you will be free to display it in your stores. The areas in which you can display them include your Product Catalog and your Featured Product Component.

Blank Product Purchase Options

Once you have a blank product assigned to a Store the Blank Product Purchase Options associated with that product will determine if and how shoppers can purchase that product.

These settings are visible on the General Tab when editing the product. The configuration you save here will be the default purchase options used whenever the blank product is assigned to a new Store. The available purchase options are:

Buy Now: This option will allow shoppers to enter a quantity and add a blank product to
their shopping cart directly from the Product Detail page.

Design Online: Allow shoppers to fully create their very own design and place it on the product
using the Online Designer. This option provides the most interactive experience
and allows shoppers to create their own virtual mockups. Shoppers will be able
to access Design Ideas and Clip Art that you have assigned to the store as well as
the ability to upload their own artwork.

Design Details Form: This option gives shoppers the ability to submit paid orders for personalized
products without having to create or upload any artwork. This workflow is ideal
for buyers who know they need personalized products. However, they do not
have their artwork ready or available to be uploaded/created within the online


No Purchase Options Selected: If no Purchase Options are selected, then a Contact Us button will show on the Product Detail page and the shopper will not be able to add the product to their shopping cart.

Default Purchase Options: By default, when you add a new blank product to your InkSoft account the Design Online purchase option is the only option enabled.

Design Form Button Label

This allows the admin to enter their own verbiage for the button that displays on
the product detail page. By default, the button label will be set to Upload Now.
This field is required and cannot be left blank

Store Overrides

Purchase Options can be set at the Store Level. Store Level Purchase Options will
override the default Purchase Options that are set on the General Tab. In order to
view the Store Specific purchase options, you must first go to the Stores Tab of
Edit Product and then select a new store from the Store Select dropdown.

Note: Legacy stores do not support Blank Product purchase options. 




When a new Store is selected you will see a select option labeled Blank
Purchase Options. The - Same as Product - option will be selected by default.
This means this store will use the Blank Product Purchase options you have set on
the General Tab.

To apply Store Overrides you must change this selection to Custom. Once
updated to custom, you will be given the same Purchase Options as before. Once you have made your selections, click the Save button. Note: you can revert back to the Default options by changing the Select option back to Same as Product.


Set Blank Product Purchase Options in Bulk

Blank Product Purchase Options can be updated in bulk from the Manage
Products page. Simply use the filter options and select the products that you
would like to modify by enabling the checkbox to the left of each product.

With the products selected, open the Select Action dropdown, and choose Set
Blank Purchase Options under the -- DISPLAY -- section.



A dialog will appear, showing you a list of all the blank products you selected
from the Manage Products table. Note that if you selected any pre-decorated
products those will be left out of the bulk action dialog since the purchase
options only apply to blank products.


You can also change the Design Form Button Label for ALL selected products
from this dialog as well. 

Once you have made all of your selections, click the Apply action. The dialog will
close and your changes will be saved.

Note: the bulk action will overwrite the existing purchase options of the
selected products.
