I am running Magento ver. 126.96.36.199 and I have 100s of configurable products that each have 40-90 different configurations. Is there a simple way to add all the simple products quickly other than quick create on the Associated products tab. This can take hours creating 40-90 versions of one product. 4-5 different attributes with 2-6 different options per attribute.
2nd question is how do I set up "if and then" pricing. If attribute AA has a $20 increase for attribute B, but attribute AB has a $30 increase or the same attribute B. It seems you can only set fixed pricing for each attribute option
I'm running into a similar situation. My plan will be to add products via a mass upload using Excel to create my simple products - including pricing for each product. I haven't run into anything (besides a few expensive apps) that make Magento responsive - like "if and then" pricing. Seems like pricing is pulled from simple products.
Best of luck!
