Looking for "Build a Box" Contribution


bivaniszyn

Recommended Posts

I haven't had any luck looking for a contribution that would allow a site visitor to select a quantity of different products and purchase them at one (or groups of) set prices based on product quantity or weight. The exact application is for a candy shop site that would allow a customer to "Build a Box" of chocolates (for instance) by mixing quantities of different chocolates until they met a quantity or weight maximum and then stop and checkout. I would have thought that something like this may be available for the gift basket market. Any suggestions appreciated!

The discount group modification of Quantity Price Break Per Product (is found inside the more recent versions) looks a bit like that, on products quantity. But I might be wrong.

I've been looking but couldn't find it BUT a short while ago I did see something along the lines of checkboxes on the product list page or all products page. Something like that anyway.

 

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Would this idea work?

 

Instead of using a mod, just use attributes.

 

i.e. 10lb box of candy - up to 5 different choices

 

candy choice 1 ... all candy choices available

candy choice 2 ... all candy choices available + no 2nd option

candy choice 3 ... all candy choices available + no 3rd option

candy choice 4 ... all candy choices available + no 4th option

candy choice 5 ... all candy choices available + no 5th option

 

This way they could choose all the same or any variety they wanted. You would prepare it with equal amounts of each.. unless they chose one item more than once, indicating a desire to have more of that than the rest.
