Getting child product price instead of configurable product price

Getting child product price instead of configurable product price

Hello Support,

We are using Magento EE 1.14.2, In that we are developing B2B website with configurable product. It means a product can be come with 3 types. Type1, Type 2 and Type 3. So each type will be the different price. So we have created a 3 simple products then created a configurable product with type of the those 3 simple products. Finally the products is showing in the Front end with single product with multiple types. But When I choose any one of the type and click Add to cart button, the product will be added into the cart. But the configurable product price will be added into the cart instead of respective simple prodcut price.

Please guide us to solve this issue.

Re: Getting child product price instead of configurable product price

HI,

Default magento doesn't use the 'simple' prices when dealing with configurable products. It uses the configurable product price plus a price increment value that you can enter when you set the associated products.

 

This means that you should create the configurable product to be the lowest possible price out of all the associates.. e.g. image you had 3 simple products as follows:

 

Red T-Shirt - $50

Blue T-Shirt - $60

Green T-Shirt - $70

 

The 'Configurable' T-Shirt product should be created with $50 as the price, and then in the 'associated products' section for the Red T-Shirt - you'd leave the price as empty, for the Bue T-Shirt you'd put the price as 10 (since 60-50 = 10) - and for the green t-shirt you'd put the price as 20 (because 70-50 = 20)

 

There is an extension (although seemingly no longer supported) that gets around this and can use the 'simple' product price as the final price.. however in my experience its always much better to set them up as magento intended to maximise compatibility with any other plugins you may want installing.
