Looking for checkbox related products solution
« on: June 12, 2019, 17:21:27 pm »
hi guys
I'm looking for a solution for this:
There is a product, e.g. a phone
I want to bind some kind of related products or accesories like case, cable, screen protector etc and on the productdetails page I want to display these products as a checkbox list and the customer could use a simple checkbox to select if he needs these accesories or not. There should be a single "add to cart" button and VM should add the product itself and the selected accesories to the cart.
I don't need bundle prices or something like that, just a simple checkbox product list and a multi-addtocart solution.
Is there an existing solution for that?

If you really need the other products as products, you could use the multiadd layout in productdetails, but it has to be adjusted a bit.

I have a test running here:

Might work for you.

You have https://shop.st42.fr/en/products/extra-product.htm.
See demo https://pro.st42.fr/en/demo/extra-product/extra-product-demo.html

Thanks, looks promissing.
You should add some admin screenshots too to check how should I assign the related products. Or does it use the VM's core related products feature?

Also have a look at the Product Bundles

Adding a checkbox is quite easy.

It use ajax search, display a list and you click the product.
Very simple to use
