custom fields Extra cost disappears after overwrite final
« on: October 13, 2015, 11:52:24 am »
Hello,
I have create some products with custom fields (string attribute) with extra cost. But when i enter discounts with overwrite final, the extra custom field cost disappears.Is that normal and if it is, how am I supposed to add discounts?
Thanks in advance!

It is in the title "overwrite final". Whatever the final price of the product will be, it is overridden by whatever you set as the override price.

Use Tax/Calculation rules for discounts.  http://docs.virtuemart.net/manual/products-menu/taxes-and-calculation-rules.html

DB query to set them to 0.00000

UPDATE `xxx_virtuemart_product_prices` SET `product_override_price`= '0.00000'

Don't use string custom field. Its very limited compared to Hutson's plugin - http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=127362.0
