I would love to set the default variant

You can set the default variant on each product using our Variant Pricing extension.


Our extension preselects the first option in every variant dropdown so that customers can quickly purchase the default variant. Do contact me if you have questions or want to purchase something more bespoke.

You don't need to pay for an app: use this code


function setValue() 
     var dropdown = document.querySelectorAll('[data-variant-option-name="Type"]')[0];
    dropdown.value = 'Summer Flap';
  var dropdown2 = document.querySelectorAll('[data-variant-option-name="Colour"]')[0];
    dropdown2.value = 'Orange $89';
  window.onload = setValue;

function setValue() {
document.querySelectorAll('div.variant-option select').forEach(function(dropdown){
  dropdown.selectedIndex = '1';
 window.onload = setValue ;

The above code can put in `Page Header Code Injection` and it will select the first variant option and displays its price as well

I modified @DomBrady answer to work with any product variant without having to specify variant details in code
