Hello,

There are many options types in Ecwid like dropdown, checkboxes, text fields and so on.

For some of these options types there are price modificators in Ecwid that add or bate some extra pricing to your base product price. Unfortunately text field option has no such price modificators - this option doesn’t change the product price.

I’d like to suggest the following variant how you could setup options to personalize your items. it is to use two product options: radio-button + text field. Your customers will be able to select an option to personalize the item using radio-button and add text into the field. Since the radio-button option can change the price, the customer will be charged extra for it.

Here are some steps you should do:

- The first option will be radio-button with two values: personalized item or non-personalized item. Set it up the way that personalized option will add some extra price to your base product.

- The second one will be text field option. Name it “for personalized items” for example. After your customers select “personalized item” radio-button option they will be able to add necessary info in this option field.
