Adding a new product in Stand-Alone (3D)

About Stand-Alone products

  • Stand-Alone products differ from those on Shopify/WooCommerce in that they aren't linked to any store settings responsible for managing details like price and quantity information.
  • These product details can be adjusted within the options available for Stand-Alone products and will be visible in the order form once customization is completed.
  • Here is an example of how to create a new customizable 3D product template from scratch and make a URL for it.
