Having a difficult time making a product with options
« on: August 01, 2019, 10:21:27 am »
I can't seem to figure out how to make a product with options like:

Choose Size (radio buttons to alter price)

Select a size
(+$1) 3x5
(+$2) 5x7
(+$3) 8x10

Now select a paper
(+$1) Glossy
(+$2) Matte

Proceed to Checkout

Do I have to build these in custom fields? When I click custom fields there's a dropdown with options such as boolean, string, etc but I can't make sense of how to make a pricing list there. Any guidance on how to do this would be very appreciated. All week I have been trying to figure it out because it seems so easy but I can't seem to figure it out!

Make a custom field STRING with "Select a size" and so on, and activate the options cart input and cart attribute.

Choose that later in your product tab custom fields.

PS. Check here too: http://docs.virtuemart.net/manual/products-menu/custom-field-edit.html .
PPS. Check AH's post below, that plugin works very well.
