Another recently added in the Flexible Product Fields WordPress plugin field type is HTML. Use this field for example to create hyperlinks, add colors to your text or change its format. As in the previous examples, first you have to choose the HTML field type from the list and next write your text in the HTML code. These are just some examples of what you can use it for:
