Our “Custom Options Replicator” extension is no longer supported.

We recommend Amasty‘s Mass Product Actions extension as an alternative solution.

Our free Custom Options Replicator extension for Magento copies custom options between multiple products in Magento web-to-print and dynamic imaging stores. It is similar to bulk editing functionality for product attributes, but for custom options only. More »


Stores with large number of products take a significant amount of your time to make bulk product updates if done one by one. Using one of the bulk editing options available in Magento can prove very helpful, especially when transferring your ZetaPrints web-to-print portal into a Magento web-to-print store. More »

It is sometimes convenient to populate variable web-to-print text fields by default. This way, users can edit parts of the text only and wont have to waste time re-entering large texts for no reason.

Your web-to-print templates contain variable images that come in all shapes and sizes. Using the “Fit-in-field” tool, your customers will be able to adapt any image they’ve uploaded in a way that is relevant to the shape and size requirements of a specific image field. More »


If you find yourselves struggling to figure out why a web-to-print product is not showing in the front end of your store, go through these requirements and make sure you didn’t miss anything. More »

For example you have a template in English and want the field names to be in English and French depending on the user’s choice. More »


Magento products can be linked to imported web-to-print templates using a tab on a product details page. This is convenient if you have existing products that need to be linked to templates or want to re-link to a different template.

Follow these steps if you want to populate your Magento web-to-print store with a combination of both simple and virtual web-to-print product types. More »
