That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you an answer..
OK, I used the Products Attributes with some success. I appears that this will work for me but seems very tedious. Maybe I am not doing it right. Is there a tutorial somewhere for this section?..
In the contribs section there is something you can dowload called the "Attributes copier" this allows you to add the same sizes/colours for the products - here is more info:.
Yes I agree it's not one of the easiest systems for entering the variable product attributes. I managed to work it out a bit last night but couldn't work out how to make different prices for the different attributes:.
EX: product A: white 1.00, green: 1.50, etc etc..
If anybody can tell me how to do this ( I could be missing something obvious I accept this) then I would be very grateful..
You can add as many special attributes as you want..
Once you have set up your attributes, if you have a lot of products to add the same attribute to you can use phpmyadmin and go in a set the attribute links up in the database..
I'm havin trouble with attributes. The merchant sells oils and it comes in three different size bottles.
So I made an attribute called size and I made three size values for it called 5 ml, 10 ml, and 30 ml..
OK, I set up size for one of the products but it only displays ONE size in the pulldown. Do I have to add.
3 sizes for each product? She's only got about 2 million different types of oil!!.
And another problem:.
I can't just subtract a standard amount for the 5ml and add a standard amount for the 30, because each type of oil she sells OK it's a different price. So How can I transmit to the customer the 3 different prices (depending on size) for EACH different oil product?..
I need to add size and color options to many of the products in my store. I can't seem to find what I am looking for. The only thing I found on the forums is that there are some contribs that have this..
My OSCommerce Admin panel has a Products Attributes section under Catalog. I was assuming this is how you do it but I quickly became confused..
Can someone let me know if I am headed in the right direction with this 'Products Attributes' section or if I have to have a custom contrib implemented. I just need to add two drop downs where the shopper can pick the size and the color they want from a list I create when I add the product to the catalog..
Thanks in advance for any help...
Yes I belive this is correct - product attributtes is where you add all your colours and sizes for the products..
