Selling bulk products
« on: January 14, 2010, 12:16:59 pm »

I'm planning to use VirtueMart to create an online shop but I have a requirement about selling products in single unit but also offer the chance to the client to buy the products in bulk format (eg sell a screw individually or sell a 100 screws box so the price of the box is cheaper than if you buy 100 single screws) and showing this in the same product page.

So the thing is that for some products, directly from the product page, you can add to the cart a quantity of single products or a quantity of the bulk version. The product is basically the same, the only difference is that I would like to have an extra attribute for the bulk (quantity of the single product inside the box) and maybe a different image.

Can I do that with Child Products? or using any other extension?

I'm newbie to VirtueMart and I couldn't find any clue about how to resolve this in the forum, in the manual or even trying to that with the software installed in my computer...sorry if the answer is really obvious...

Thanks in advance,
