Restyle Custom Forms in Product/Checkout

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://point-manatee-dntb.squarespace.com/shop/p/leatherette-coffee-table-book

Is it possible to restyle a Customer Form in the checkout process? 

If variant limitations weren't a thing I'd have an Album Colour option which would have 12 options, but this is expending my variant limit, hence the Custom Form. The trouble is it doesn't look particularly nice! 

Also, in an ideal world I would include a field below Cover Text if a customer selected Yes, in order to capture the text they want to include (with a character limit since it's an ideal world) - rather than have it on the customer form. Is this possible somehow?

Help most appreciated!

I'm interested in doing the same thing on my site. I'd like to trigger different forms based on which product variant my custom selects.

So given 3 options for color patterns - Solid, Two Tone or 3 Tone - when they select "Solid" it will give them a list of the solid colors available. "Two Tone" would trigger a form for the two tone colors I have and "Three Tone" a third form that corresponds with the three tone colors available.

Much like DreamrW, I'm only doing this to get around the 250 Variant limit. Again, if there were a way around that I'd just run more variants.

@PWMachining It's difficult for us to understand the context without a link to the site (or screenshots) but have you considered splitting the product into several different products by one of the variants, for example one product that requires the customer to provide custom information and one that doesn't? You can then either have fewer options for the remaining variant selections or a separate custom product form for each product.

I've split my products as far as I can without compromising the customer experience. 

You're limited to the built-in options that are available on Squarespace as there isn't a way to extend the variant options with code. To be fair, managing complex variants is difficult on many 'off-the-shelf' commerce solutions, especially when variant choices affect the product price. If they didn't, you could simply use the Custom Product Form for the custom options, as you have for the colours. 🙂

is there any way to make the Custom Forms look better?

Yes, you can add Custom CSS (to Design > Custom CSS) to style the form. For example, to change colours, font styles/sizes and so on. There are a number of posts that cover some of the options.

However, CSS won't allow you to selectively hide/show the text field depending on the variant that the customer selected.

I hope this helps.
