Question Regarding Perch Shop Ordering Process

Our shop essentially has one product.

When a customer clicks to order they go through some steps (on separate pages).

User visits Product Page and clicks "Order Now" Step 1 (Page 1). We want them to be able to upload a design file Step 2 (Page 2). Choose options to customise that product and review order / add to cart

I'm reading through the perch shop documentation and my question is how do I initiate the order process at the file upload stage in Step 1 as the "Add to cart button" comes after the options have been chosen in step 2.

Is what I'm seeking sound at all possible with the Perch shop?

No, that doesn't sound possible currently. Product customisation is on the roadmap but isn't available yet.

Do you think we could get away with using current product options functionality?

We want them to change the colour, quantity and dimensions.

If it is just one product, and they will only have a single product in the cart, then you could use cart-property perhaps? So for colour maybe:

<perch:label for="colour">Colour</perch:label>
<perch:input type="select" options="Blue|Red|Green" id="colour" label="Colour" cart-property="colour" />

Thanks Mike - This is what we had in mind regarding the options functionality.

Drew - I have sent you some of our design work over email. This might give you a better sense of what we are trying to achieve.
