Yes, for products synced from Retail POS to BigCommerce, the display option type and style can be edited when using Version 3 of the BigCommerce product page.

  Important

While you can edit the display option type and style in Version 3, only specific products details can be edited on BigCommerce, otherwise the sync between Retail POS and BigCommerce will break.

Refer to the How to edit products linked to BigCommerce guide for more information.

For those using Version 2 of the BigCommerce product page, editing the display option type and style will break the sync from Retail POS to BigCommerce and remove all variant level SKUs associated with the product.

Retail POS will only sync to the default settings using Version 2 and you must upgrade to Version 3 to change these. To upgrade, visit the BigCommerce opt-in page.

Default Version 2 settings:

  • Option type: Radio list 
  • Display type: Multiple choice
  • Display style: Rectangle
