Price range instead of price?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question about setting up my product catalog. I sell promotional items and I need to be able to display my prices as a price range instead of one price, in the Category listing and everywhere. I insert tables in every product's description to show the quantity pricing but when I go to input the product's price range into the price field it doesn't work. Is there a way around this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

That sounds like something you could perhaps do with "attributes". Start by listing a basic price eg the cheapest rate, then have attributes for each price band.

 

I don't know if anyone can suggest a good introduction to setting-up attributes - I couldn't find one.

Sorry for posting the original message in the wrong place. :oops:

 

I need to be able to have my catalog pages display my products with a price range instead of just a price. Instead of just a dollar amount listed under the thumbnails I need to be able to say "as low as $3.00".

 

Examples:

 

http://www.branders.com

 

http://www.epromos.com

 

Is there any way I can get the Price field, when I'm entering a product's information into the database using the Admin interface, to accept either of the kinds of entries above in red? The way it is now I can only get it to accept one amount for the price and that's it. If I put a range in, it only shows me the first price.

 

Any ideas on what I can do for this?

Try taking a look at the sort by price feature http://www.rushimprint.com - they also sell promotional products. Is this what you are looking for?

I'd think you'll need to an another field to the product for price range, then have the index.php and product_info.php call that info up to display. You'll probably have an easier time working volume discounts either with an existing contrib, or by using attributes, and have a base price to work from that remains in the products_price in the db.
