[ic] Pricing based on adjustment
Thu, 12 Oct 2000 15:55:03 PDT
I only know how to do things one way... after I've figured it out, I stop
hacking. So, this is how I did it.
You want to sell a tshirt (sku = tshirt) at $29.95 for Small, $30.95 in
Medium and $32.95 in Large.
1) Set CommonAdjust to attribute (ie. size) in catalog.cfg like so:
CommonAdjust products:price, ==size:pricing
2) Add the t-shirt to your products table.
sku price size
tshirt 29.95 S=S,M=M,L=L
3) Set up you pricing table.
Aside from the sku (PRIMARY KEY), you will need a field for EVERY possible
attribute that can affect price. In this case, you will need a field named
"S", one named "M" and one named "L".
sku S M L
tshirt +1.00 +3.00
4) Once you export your tables, the price differences will be reflected in
Note: I use
S=S - $29.95,M=M - $30.95,L=L - $32.95
in my size field of the products table to let the visitor know how much they
are expected to pay.
Hope it helps,
