As you can see in the documentation from your link above, the shoppingCartProductEntity array attribute "options" is an associativeArray in the form of option_id => content.

I found a nice answer on stackoverflow "Setting Custom Options while adding a product to cart via SOAP in Magento" regarding this problem and the declaration as provided in the documentation does not seem correct.

The right way seems to be:

'options' => 
          0 => 
              'key' => 1
              'value' => 2),
          1 => 
              'key' => 3
              'value' => 4),              
  • is 'key' title of option ? and 'value' value of option ? like Color , Red ?
