As a seller, you can build a product that contains multiple products with different options. Allow the buyer to design his product by himself.

For example: when buying a computer, the buyer will have the ability to choose from different components options. Hard Desk type and storage, Ram size, screen type and size, and so on...

First step: Add the products as simple products separately
