Adding several prices on the same item
« on: May 03, 2012, 22:57:40 pm »
Hello,
I would like to add additional prizes for a same article depending on quantity. How can I do?
I tried with custom fields, without success.
In fact, I would like this option when the customer clicks on "add to cart". Then the system will show him several prizes available depending on quantity.
Thank you for your help.

ok i bought the extension but how does it works.
I read it was in the calculation rules?
If, for example, i want to sell a product but in different state and each state have a price, how can i do ?
Thanx

Philippe,

hi in the normal calcultions in tax you can set a different tax rate per state and country - problem is (it depends in your country) if the uSA then you might have to do 50 plus states , in Australia only 7 max ?

* but it can be done there?

Hello,
my first question was not about stories of taxes.
I just want to offer multiple prices for the same product.

Example: I sell protective film for glazing. I have different size roll and each roll has a price.

I wish that customers can choose their roll and each roll is linked to a price. When they click on the roll they want, it will add to the basket with good price.

How i can do that ?

So, I do not think the plug-in that I bought is useful that I want to do, am I wrong?

Thanks a lot

Hi Philippe,

Ok the small issue here is that jenkinhill, I thought, answered your question well. that extension will allow eg ( 1 product for $1.00) or say ( 5 products for $4.00) so that is quantity and varing prices.
* attributes will allow you to set different prices for different quantities but you have to set the quantity and price eg ( 1 is $1.00) , (2 is $10.00) simple drop down boxes.
* the prices can vary in each state if you calculate a tax so - that also works.

* I think we covered all options.

* If we have missed the idea - then give an exact example or a product and show a list of the volume and prices.

ok, here is the page where there is the problem: http://boutique.uvprotech.fr/index.php/nos-films/films-anti-graffitis/agi-100-detail.
Perhaps it will be more explicit.
A roll, a price
Another roll, another price

In any case, I wonder how this plug-in works in the back office. It is not at all intuitive

It looks as though you are using the wrong attribute ?

Are you using "Cart Variant" as this will allow you to have one product and then many drop down varients with different prices.

* What you have is two set variants with only one option each -

* "you have many to one" , "when you can set one as to many"

I used the custom field and tried many things.
But, yes, I used the value "attribute cart" several times in different cases.
What I would like is a detailed description of what to do to have a product and then many drop down varients with different prices.
Thanx again

custom field>>new>>custome field type>>cart Variant>>title>>attributes"you pick a name">>
cart attribute >>yes  leave the rest >>save

Go to a product >> pick your product>>custom fields>>custom field type >> pick the one you chose"by name">>then fill in one and save >> repeat>> many times using the same name.
 Save, save save ,

On the font you will see just one attribute name and many drop down options with a variety of prices.
Then go back and change what you need to change
Done

John,
it's not what i want. It's great, but it's not what i want.
Really sorry.
In fact, i don't want variety of prices for one  product.
I want one price for one variety of product.
I do not know if I'm making myself clear
Imagine a roll of film. A blue film

This film is sold in different length.
a roll of 1m
a roll of 2m
a roll of 3m

The 1m roll cost 1€, $, £ what ever...
the 2m roll cost 2€
the 3m roll cost 3€

I'm a customer and want the blue film in 2 meters in length. I click on the radio button "2 meters long" and the basket is filled automatically with the good item.

How can i manage that with the custom fields ,

I sure we gonna understand each other. But sorry for my poor english. it's a hard exercice for a french ;)
thanx

yes exactly and thanks to you, I succeeded.
http://boutique.uvprotech.fr/index.php/nos-films/films-anti-chaleur/ir50-detail
Now, I must see with my client how to manage the price because obviously, in VM, there is a unit price and then you create rules for calculating taxes.
I will already see it and I would probably stay on the forum to understand these rules.
Another big thank you for your patience and availability :)
