Option for products

greenspun.com : LUSENET : S-Mart Shopping Cart : One Thread

I am using version 1.9.5, and I have the problem that the products I sell have some options that increase the price, and other options that don't change the price but need to be included, I also have to get other data like inscriptions that can be different on each product. Also the base price changes as the quantity changes.

Does anyone have any suggestions about how to tackle any of these requirements?

I had to do just this for a site called photowow.com. At first I just created static pages where a pulldown menu of options actually changed the page you are on and the hidden form elements had new skew, price and options fields. Eventually this got to be a real big job and I had an ASP guy create a database to display the items and dynamically generate the pages (with options what change prices). SMART 1.9.2 has no capabilty to do it alone. The new version at WebStore and my own version that will be released soon supports options but not price changing options.

Hope it helps answer your questions.
