Magento 2 - configurable product price based on parent

looks like product pricing on M2 works differently

 

in Magento 1 - for the configurable product, it used to work like this

 

Parent item £200
-- Colour option A +£50
-- Colour option B +£75
and so on......

 

so the 'child product' would add additional cost on to the 'parent item' to get price

this way if we had a sale or offer or, all we did was place the parent item on offer and it would add sale

 

Parent item £200
-- Colour option A +£50
-- Colour option B +£75
if someone wanted colour option B its would be £200 + £75 = £275

 

**SALE:**
Parent item £200 - now £100
-- Colour option A +£50
-- Colour option B +£75
if someone wanted colour option B its would be £100 + £75 = £175

 

**magento 2 does not have this behavior**

 

each item has own price

 

Parent item £200 (actually you cannot put price for the parent on M2)
-- Colour option A £250
-- Colour option B £275
if someone wanted colour option B its would be £200 + £75 = £275

 

So how to put sale on?

 

Parent item £200 - now £100
-- Colour option A £250
-- Colour option B £275
if someone wanted colour option B its would be £275

 

I realise I can put sale price on child items - just not sure I want it to work like that

 

It means more effort in adjusting pricing - before if I wanted to increase or decrease an items price and it had 20 child items associated to it, i just changed the parent item price..... done

now i need to change all of them......

Hello @andrewellis3,

 

For setting the sale price to child products ican be done with the following procedure as below.

Navigate Admin->Catalog->Products. Open any child of configurable product, you can see 'prices' tab. open and add your sale price in the field 'cost'.

If you get best solution, then give kudos and accept as solution.

Re: Magento 2 - configurable product price based on parent

Hello @andrewellis3,

 

There are two ways to show the price of child products with inclusive price of parent product.

Method 1: when we after selecting the configurable product from the parent product. if I choose my color as red then the price will be changed as parent item price + child item price as £ 100 + £ 50 = £ 150 on product page.

 

Method 2: After I added the configurable product to cart it will show the pricing as parent item pricing + child item pricing in cart page. 

 

I would need to know when the pricing will get changed either when we after chosen the child product or when add the product to cart.
