Attaching Multiple Files to Product Options in Shopify

The BitStream Dashboard

With BitStream, you can easily create different options for your products, including the ability to attach digital files to any variant you need.

When you have a product that has many different variations or options, it is important to be able to showcase these easily.  BitStream gives you that ability, including the option of attaching digital files to any or all of your product's variations.  This walkthrough will go through the process with a new product, but you can easily edit a product you already have to include options or add files.
