Best way to handle this?

Recommended Posts

Hi I am trying to figure out the best way to handle this situation. Lets say for instance, we have a shopping cart that is selling bags of dog food. The customer can buy different sizes (or weights) of the same brand and same type of dog food. Each different size bag has a different price, but it's still the same bag of food. I hope that makes sense.

 

Should I add 3 different products, with 3 different prices? or should I add one product, with 3 different attributes that the customer can select? If the attributes is the best option (and I think it is), how would I go about setting the attributes up? Thanks!

You can use called "Products Attributes" it can do what you need

OK...When I create the initial product, i have to set the price at 0?

 

and then in Attributes, do i add

 

Option Name: Weight

 

Option Values: Weight; 3 Pounds

 

Product Attributes: xxxxx dog food: Weight; 3 Pounds; (value price) 3.00; +

 

That would make it so that the product would initially start at 0 dollars (that doesn't look good at all), then when they click to view the product information, it will have 3 different options for them to choose, 3 pounds, 5 pounds, 10 pounds (assuming i've gone through and added all of those attributes)

 

Ok, so if the customer has even made it that far, they select a drop down menu that says

 

Weight: 3 pounds (+$3.00)

5 pounds (+$5.00)

10 pounds( +$10.00)

 

I really don't like it. There's got to be an easier, more appealing way to do it...i'm still sifting through the Contributions. If you or anyone knows of anything to make that task easier, i would appreciate it.

 

Thank you again.
