Product Builder Shopify App
Let your customers build their own products exactly to their specifications!
Install Difficulty Explained
Each app has different installation requirements. Some require no work at all, while others require a few modifications to the liquid code in your store's template.
Below is a general definition of difficulty to give you a better idea what to expect. We also offer installation services so no matter how difficult (or easy) it is to install, if you can't figure it out, don't want to try or just don't have the time, we can help.
We consider an app easy to install when it requires either NO modifications to your store's template, or a single line of code copy & pasted into your liquid files.
We consider an app medium to install when it requires a few different lines of code copy & pasted into one or a few of your store's templates.
Some of our more complex apps require a litte modification to your theme's template files. These would be considered hard to install. We recommend you use our app installation service for these apps, unless you are comfortable with liquid and HTML.

Product Builder Shopify App
You have variants, you have options, but now you can go one step further and allow your customers to totally build their product! Product Builder for Shopify is the first ever 100% customizable product builder app. From fishing rods to guitars to vinyl wall graphics and everything in between, your customers have the opportunity to put their own stamp on your product!
All you have to do is create the sequential steps a customer will go through to build their product. As they go through each step, making a choice at each one, a thumbnail will appear displaying an image representing the choice they’ve made. It allows the customer to see exactly what they’ve chosen before they buy it. You also have an option to track inventory for parts chosen in the build and change the price based off which options are selected!
- Sell 100% customizable products that your customers actually build themselves!
- Unique and totally customizable graphical interface that changes images as customers build their products.
- Change prices with the options, set conditional logic, integrate with inventory and much more.
HOW IT WORKS
When using this app you first create steps, with options within each of those steps. Customers then "step" through the builder in a sequential manner, making a choice on each step. 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 which options are selected.
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. 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 then in a "Builder" fashion to create a custom rod.
How will I know which 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.
Is there a liquid update 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!
