How to Integrate Radio Buttons in Shopify: A Complete Tutorial for Tailoring Product Selection Options


When it comes to customizing the online shopping experience, tailoring product selection options is essential for both merchants and shoppers. From colors to sizes, the ability to provide choices matters. But what if you need something even more specific, like integrating radio buttons into your Shopify store? This may seem complex, but don't worry! We have two solutions for you: a conventional method of manual coding and an easier way through our Shopify app. Let's dive in!

Solution 1: Create Manually - The Manual Coding Method

The manual coding process is for those who love to have complete control over their customization. While it requires some coding knowledge, follow these step-by-step instructions, and you'll be good to go:

  • Navigate to Your Theme's Code Editor: From your Shopify admin, go to 'Online Store > Themes' and edit the code.
  • Find the Product Template File: Look for product-template.liquid or similar.
  • Insert Radio Button Code: You can use HTML's <input type="radio"> to create radio buttons. Add labels and values as needed.
  • Styling (Optional): Use CSS to style the radio buttons as per your store's theme.
  • Save and Test: Always test your changes to ensure they work as expected.

Solution 2: Easy Way with the Live Product Options App
