Is there a way to add a custom option to cart without first adding it to the product in the admin and saving it? I want to programatically add a note that shows on checkout below the product (just like custom options do) but I don't want to add this custom option to all products in the admin. If I can't do it like this, any suggestions? I want the info to show on emails and in the admin order view too.
I want something on cart like:
Custom Label: Custom Value
I have this code, but it doesn't allow adding a custom option if it doesn't already exist, so I don't know if it's possible:
$params = array( 'product' => $id, 'qty' => $qty, 'options' => array( 1 => 'value 1', // works cause is saved to product on edit product 'Custom Label' => 'custom value' // doesn't work ) ); $request = new Varien_Object(); $request->setData($params); $cart->addProduct($product,$request); $cart->save(); Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->setCartWasUpdated(true); $this->_redirect('checkout/cart');
