Adding multiple corol variations for one producs?
« on: April 13, 2014, 06:58:06 am »
Hi,

on my virtuemart shop I have approx. 100 products - watches. Each product-watch has variation of 3 colors. Since I don't intend to create extra 200 products in order to present all color variations, I am searching best solution to present ONE product in 3 ore more colors during order. I already have prepared pictures of each product with 3  different color so buyer could choose the wanted one before ordering and checkout. It should work similar to e-bay, please see image bellow



Can anyone appoint me how to solve this in virtuemart?

Many thanks in advance for prompt replies and best regards,
Adi

Hello,

How did you do that in the end? I'm also interested in this, but I wouldn't want to create child products for each product.

Your link was very informative, thank you!

However, I still have the same problem as post author did, I also need to change product image based on the color selected (different product picture for each color). I know that it is possible with child products, but I will have to create a lot of child products, which I rather not do, so I was hoping to find a different solution.

I understand that you are the developer of this extension? Would it be possible for you to provide a demo with this functionality? I looked at current demo, but you can't see functionality like this there.

I looked at demos, read the documentation, but I don't see how this would solve my problem, could you please explain it in more detail?

I can see the color changes, could you please tell me a bit more about how they are implemented? I does seem that child products are being used here.
