Hi there, here is my situation, hopefully someone can help.
I have a product and it ships as:
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
Custom options will help you acheiving your requirements.
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?
You can use Tier Price concept of Magento which will update the price according to that.
Thanks for the reply, I have not heard of this, do you have a link at all so I can learn more please?
Thanks again, deadline is looming!
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
