Adding many children products from a configurable product

Adding many children products from a configurable product

I’m new to Magento and currently running my own bussiness. The Magento 2 store was welcomed by most of my customers but also got some complaints. For the configurable products, they can not buy different children products at one time and have to select one by one. So anyone can suggest me any solutions to this problem by either configuration or extension ? Many thanks.

Re: Adding many children products from a configurable product

Hi @charliedt For this problem, the default Magento does not support choosing many children products at once so sadly you can not change it by configuration. But no need to be worried much. This can be easily solved by an extension named Configurable Product Grid Table View For Magento 2

 

Configurable Product

As you can see in the above image, the extension allows customer to select quantity for each child product and add all products to cart by one simple “Add to cart button”. It also feature:

  • Listing all children products in a grid table view
  • Display availability and unit price of each children product.
  • Show sub quantity, total quantity, total price.

Re: Adding many children products from a configurable product

Hi @charliedt, you might try looking at grouped products instead of configurable products. This way they can see the group together but pick the individual products they want to add to their cart.

 

Here's a bit more information for 1.x: http://docs.magento.com/m1/ce/user_guide/catalog/product-grouped.html

 

And also for 2.1: http://docs.magento.com/m2/ce/user_guide/catalog/product-grouped-products.html

Re: Adding many children products from a configurable product

Hi @charliedt with the new Add Multiple Products To Cart for Magento 2, you can add many products to cart without loading the product page.

 

The module supports:

  • Add multiple products to cart with one click by checkbox and quantity box to select products and "Add all to cart" button
  • Display a popup to select product options
  • Show a popup to notify customer about successfully adding products to cart
  • Select specific customer groups for adding multiple products to cart at the same time
  • Work for simple, configurable, bundle products and simple products with custom options

Re: Adding many children products from a configurable product

Hello,

 

Why not to create a grouped product and convert it into a checklist? See example here - http://demo.itoris.com/mage2/fitness-check-list-grouped-product-with-options-example-2.html

Try the Grouped Product Options for Magento 2 to achieve that.

 

Hope it will be of help.
