Create and Manage Item Modifiers

If you need customizable options – toppings, add-ons, or special requests – create item modifiers. Modifiers that are applied to items will display on your customers’ digital receipts, from Transactions in your online Dashboard and in the Item Details report.

Unlike price points used for sizes, colors or SKUs, item modifiers don’t decrease inventory counts if inventory management is turned on.
