Attributes

Recommended Posts

Hi,

We have several products that need attributes.

 

i.e. a new product (TV)

it has attributes like Cables, Brackets, Warranty etc.

and then each attribute has many types in it. i.e. Cables will have 1m cable, 2m cable, different branded cable etc.

 

so is there a way to set up the attributes once and then just assign then to new or exsisting products?

Which is the right contribution for it?

any screen shots & working examples?

 

Please help as it is much needed. also can this be added into a product tab in the description?

osC's 'innate' attribute system does exactly this

Also look into the 'master product' contribution. Here you can tie several products together but still buy them separately - your customers also would like to buy cables and brackets w/o a tv, right?

Thank you!

Yes they would like to buy the options just on its own as well.

Master Products is a big install and as far as what I have been told it can not be added to a modified store.

My store has already been heavily modified.

 

Need your opinion on this also any alternative solutions?

if your store is heavily modified I would choose to set up your products with attributes plus setup and sell the attributes separately as well. This way it is the least amount of work and it will work as an incentive for your customers to buy two products together with a discount. But one disadvantage is that bundles (tv+cable+bracket) will be more elaborate to set up.

 

You could also use Amanda's 'together discount', or suggest other products.

It's name is Master Products. That is what you would need to search for. It's here:

You will need to post this question in the dedicated forum for this contribution.
