Hi..

If you have same products but they are of a different size/price they really are not the same after all.  They should have a different SKU and be entered in as different products if you want to use the inventory control to track them.  You can cross list these products using the related tab if you would like.

Otherwise you would set up a product attribute and enter in the up sized products there.  These products won't be reflected in an individual inventory control though.

Use child products, the resulting table with an addtocart button for each will also display a table with the size and price etc. They will also have their own sku's

There is plenty of info on child products in a separate thread specifically for child products.

Child products..  That is an exciting possibility I didn't know about!  Thanks!

Here is an example with the early version of VM 1.1.x

As you can see there is a table beside the image with different sizes and prices and individual buy now buttons.

just shows what is possible.

Mark...   That looks great, but here's a silly question.  I know how to get child categories, but how are you achieving child products.  I don't see a specific button to start the process.  I must be missing it somewhere.  Can you fill me in?

Thx

There's a whole thread on the subject!

But this is the sticky at the top that explains the process

I found that after I asked the question. Silly me.  Thanks for getting back though.
