Price Modifiers FieldType

See also: item options dedicated tag. The dedicated tag does not care about field name, and will output all item options found in your channel entry, regardless of name. The syntax is a bit easier to understand, so we highly recommend skipping right on over to it instead.

CartThrob’s price modifiers custom fieldtype is used to display options from configurable products. These modifiers can be no-cost options, or they can add cost to the product. For more information, please see this article on configuring price_modifiers.

Make sure you are using the short name of your price modifiers field. For this example we’re using “price_modifier” as the name of the custom field.

Although the price_modifier “tag” is really a standard channel custom field, we’re treating it like a tag here. You can output some basic information about the structure and content of the price_modifier field.

Table of Contents



The full name of the price modifier field.

Variable Pairs


You can use your item_options field as a variable pair to output your item_options data.
