Modifiers allow you to attach additional items to a menu item which may or may not have a price as well. You can use this option to add or remove ingredients to the main item, for example.
Let's examine the following case: you offer the guests to build their own pizza. You can have the 'base' pizza as a menu item and have the different toppings as modifiers with their respective price. Here modifiers can be used for specifying extra fries, extra cheese or how the steak is to be prepared: medium-rare, well-done, etc.
To create Modifiers, go to 'Management' - 'Modifiers'.
You can set the name, price, currency, inventory code and add a template group text. The price will be added on top of the base item price and can be left empty in case the modifier does not need to increase the price (e.g. no onion modifier).
