Dynamic Attributes for Custom Products


Recommended Posts

I've been asked to pick up a partially completed shopping cart progrm based on osCommerce.


The store is for custom-crafted doors. The price of the product isn't fixed, it's based on the size of the door, in Sq Inches * wood type.


So, 5 foot wide door is 25% more expensive than a 4 foot door, same height. In fiddling with the product attributes, And, different types of wood have different prices per sq inch. (EG: Oak is alot more expensive than knotted pine)


I've not figured out how to make this work with osCommerce - does anybody have some suggestions for the best way to get this ball rolling?


The actual attributes I need to track are:


1) Door style, (got this figured out

2) Wood Type (oak, birch, etc) There's a price per sq inch of material.

3) Edge type (I think this is figured out)

4) Width (inches)

5) Height (inches)

6) Qty

7) Price. (wood type price/sq inch * width * height)


So far, I'm lost. Any suggestions on where to begin?
