Showing product custom options with the order

Showing product custom options with the order

Not sure if this question belongs here or somewhere else, but here goes.

 

So I have a product where there are two ways to have it. I don't necessarily want to make two separate items since they would share the same quantity. On the product's page I want to have two radio buttons with the custom options and when the order is placed for that product I want whatever option is chosen to show up with the order so that the people who cut the fabric know which way to cut it.

 

Is there a way to have this done?

Hi @letssewllc,

 

This should be "easy" for a developer to do on your installation, I think your should have a your order-view expanded with something a la:

 

$_item->getProduct()->getTypeInstance(true)->getOrderOptions($_item->getProduct());

 

But contact your developer/company and ask them to make this for you Smiley Happy

Hey @KentChr_DK

 

I (meaning the one typing) am the developer for the website. That's why I am asking how to get this done. I guess my main problem is that I am not sure where the code would be for my needs. Or if it is really possible. Changing how the order gets sent so that the item name has an L or S or whatever I decide when it gets sent from the website to us.

Re: Showing product custom options with the order

HI @letssewllc,

 

So what you want to do is to export the orders from magento using api, xml, csv files ?

What do you have / use so far ?

 

Just a question, Magento already export SKU (this is 100% unique) and should be attached in your backoffice system to a specific product.

What / why do you need the eg. L, XL, for ? Customers e-mail, packing slips ?

Re: Showing product custom options with the order

@KentChr_DK To answer your first question, when a customer makes their order it goes into our POS system as an Open Invoice.

 

What I want to happen is that when a customer orders this particular fabric, I want the custom option to be shown with it somehow when the invoice is printed/Order received so that way whoever cuts the fabric knows which way to cut it.
