Setting up prices - help!

Setting up prices - help!

Hi there, here is my situation, hopefully someone can help.

 

I have a product and it ships as:

 

Single unit

Carton of 5

Pallet of 100

 

Now, I understand I can't just use product options for this as it won't affect the weight or stock properly on the item, so I tried using Configurable Products which make sense, however, when I select, say 'Carton of 5' from the dropdown on the configurable product the price doesn't change, and it is driving me crazy.

 

Can someone assist me or suggest a better way of doing this?

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks, I looked into that but they offer no control over the weight of stock.

 

So if I set up a custom option for:

 

1 pallet of 100

Then when it is chosen, the price changes which is great but the postage will be wrong because Magento still thinks it's just a single product with a custom option.

 

Or am I missing something?

 

Thanks

You can use Tier Price concept of Magento which will update the price according to that.

If you are not aware about the Tier Price then you can used the extension also: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/tier-price.html
