What is a Modifier?

A modifier is a property that's added to any product. For example, a sandwich can have a modifier that adds a particular ingredient.

Modifiers cannot be tied to inventory data. They are simply a label or tag that indicates something to either the Customer or the Merchant. 


Shopventory uses Variants to differentiate products.

Shopventory offers three "layers" of differentiation: Category, Product, and Variant; each field allows you to add plenty of info, so for instance:

Category: Sandwiches

Product: Turkey

  • Variant: Wheat
  • Variant: Wheat - No Onion
  • Variant: White
  • Variant: White - No Onion ... etc.


Category: Clothing

Product: T-Shirt

  • Variant: Small - Blue
  • Variant: Small - Red
  • Variant: Medium - Blue
  • Variant: Medium - Red ... etc.

Categories can be nested to add layers on top, however you would have to create each possible variant rather than using modifiers to indicate or alter the inventory of products being sold. 

Shopventory does not currently manage Modifiers.
Shopventory will not write to the Modifier field or read from it.

Modifier support is something we are looking to add in the coming months, so please reach out to our support team by starting a chat (just click that chat button in the lower right) so we can tag your email address and keep you updated!
