Custom Field Price Adjustment
« on: January 23, 2012, 21:58:37 pm »
I have a product that allows personalization. The first line is free, but the second is an additional $5. I've set up two custom text input fields: "Last Name" and "Extra".

Within the product details, I've added both custom fields, giving "Last Name" no upcharge (+0, the default) and "Extra" an upcharge of $5 (+5). I'm not exactly sure how this was intended to work, but no matter what I do, the extra $5 is added to the overall base price, whether that field is filled in or not. Both are showing up as separate fields.

Logically, I'd assume that the upcharge would only be added if VM detected the field had been filled in, but it seems as long as that custom field is applied to the product, it adds the upcharge automatically.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Is this how custom field plugins are supposed to work? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Ok, I've attached three screenshots:

- The Custom Field list
- The Product's custom fields tab
- The front-end view (I've set it to hide any text that says "Free" so only up-charges are shown)

Hi I'm using VM 2.0.1 and Joomla 2 -

I have developed a product with a varient of price -

The default price is say $5.00 and I have made to variants "string" one says 10 for $50.00 the other 20 for $80.00 - just an example.

On the actual product page the price is shown with the the varient already added -

I don't want that - I want price one on the product and only when I clik on the variant does it add a price or change it.

I know it is justa  setting-
