product combinations

Recommended Posts

hi, my first post, hope this is the right place.

is there really no module for TB that improves product combinations?  I come from woocommerce and on there there is a module where you can add the product attribute and give that attribute value the price, rather than the combination.

this makes it much quicker when managing hundreds of combinations.

we sell upholstered headboards, these can be wall hung or floor standing (2 attributes), the can be different heights, they can be in diferent materials and colours, so you see it ends up thousands of combinations, some affect price, some dont, in woocommerce we setup the attribute, give it a price, say which product or product category that attribute applies to and hey presto done, no need to have millions of price combinations.

surely something like this exists?

i am leaving woocommerce as its just so inseccure these days, and sluggish, so was hoping to find a new platform, but, this is a real deal breaker :-(  as we have to be able to easily have these prices like this.

 

also, linked attributes, so, you select your materials (say chenille) then chenille comes in 4 colours so when you select the fabric you get the select list showing the colours available for that fabric.  again this seems a basic fundamental of a lot of stores but cant see how this would be done in TB and cannot see any blocks/modules that achieve this.

 

anyone point me in the right direction, or is it back to wordpress and woocommerce :-(

thanks
Darren

You can use Prestools for managing the price of large numbers of combinations. It allows you to set prices on attributes. It is free

However, the database structure can only handle a few thousand combinations. Otherwise it becomes too slow. The alternative is the module Attribute Wizard Pro but that is far from free.

thanks for the suggestion, will take a look at both, the wizard one certainly not cheap, amazing how much more PS modules are compared to woocommercce etc, but, my site just wont work without a module like this and spent so much time getting it ready now in PS it would be soul destroying to back track lol.

 

thanks again

Hi,

This combination thing is little bit "square". You can do almost all, but without additional module there is no possibility to change product package dimensions. (Yes this isn't quick, but I have done this with CSV) Also stock keeping is very stupid. You can see overall quantity, but when You need to see how many each item you have, you must look separately. For example if You sell things which only difference is length, then you can change price and weight, but not length for every combination. Other solution is sell everything separately. But for client this is pointless. Because for this item but shorter or longer he/she need search again. I hope there will be possibility when You can add/merge (whatever word) products so that every product has its own ID, but there is also possibility to group them. So You can have stock for every item and client can make choice between items without need to search again (dropdown or radiobutton, like combination at the moment). If this is possible already then someone can teach me or at least give a hint.

I am not sure whether AWP supports your second scenario. I doubt it. So you should ask them.

You can do that on the Prodcombi page of Prestools.

That's the point. There is need for this possibility. So why not add this to TB ?
