Add some extra price fields or radio buttons (13 posts)

    Hi everybody,

    I need a possibility to add some constants (fix values) to a existing price at any product item. I use the plugin 'Measurement Price Calculator' and I'm handling my product items via 'product variations'.

    For example: The user could see a select box or a group of radio buttons with fix values: option1 = +1 Dollar, option2 = +2 Dollar, etc.

    Is there a extension for my desire? Or a built-in option?

    Thanks for any help!

    Regards,
    osmi

    I am looking for this solution too. I need a deposit function that can be added on top of the item price.

    So when you checkout, you see another row/column that states your deposit, and add to the subtotal.

    Hi visualxl,

    it seems that the extension 'Gravity Forms Add-ons' works on my problem. Here are the link. Check it out: http://www.woothemes.com/products/gravity-forms-add-ons/?utm_source=docs&utm_medium=docssite&utm_campaign=docs

    But It's really strange that woo commerce ain't got any options for that.

    Hey thanks for your reply. I am pretty aware of a few extensions that could solve my problem, but they are not free. Its unlikely that I would fork out some money for another extension as I have just bought an extension that allows you to rent equipments.

    I agree with you, woo commerce should at least allows the fix cost thingy or the deposit thingy.

    In the meantime, in order to cut cost, I added the deposit to the shipping cost. However, at the checkout page, I modified the plugin source codes in such away, that it only display the shipping cost, or both shipping cost and deposit so that it is clear to whoever is renting the equipments. Not a neat implementation I must say.

    I'm looking for a similar type of Price Measurement Calculator customisation. Did you take a look to Product addon or WP Calculator or calculated field forms?
    Not sure it suit your needs.

    Okay, I use already this plugin: http://www.woothemes.com/products/measurement-price-calculator/

    But for my needs it's totally wrong because you can't put fix values by options upon the whole price. For example: regular price = 20$, option1 adds 5$ = 25$ etc. option2 adds 10$ ...

    That sucks really. Woo commerce should integrate more options for pricing.

    Does anybody got a solution for that?

    Did you read this page : http://docs.woothemes.com/document/product-add-ons/

    Not sure, but seems to be near your needs.

    By the way, what's your opinion about PMC ? Is it easy to customize, are there a lot of hooks or understanble functions ?
    I would like to give it a try, but....what a price !

    Anyway, good luck with your search.

    You can describe me your needs for the PMC. After that I give you feedback. I got PMC right now and I'm happy but I miss a lot of functions in there. ;-)

    Well, my needs are really simple : instead of area I would like to have a custom formula for selling frames.
    A frame have a price by meter (price_m), the user choose his frame dimensions (L and H), then the calculator must show the total price, based on the perimeter : (l + h)x2xprice_m.

    I really don't understand why this is not implemented.

    Thanks for your help.

    PMC is really simple. That would work with PMC => You've got a base unit price by sq m. Now the user can put his dimensions in 2 inputs: lenght and width. The math for that: base_unit_price_in_sq_m * lenght * width = total_price

    That would work with the extension. But your perimeter calculation is a special kind and not supported by the extension. Woo commerce sucks for technical and industrial price options. :-)

    Okay, http://docs.woothemes.com/document/product-add-ons/ works nice for me. You can set globally some add-ons (fix values upon the regular price). It's also possible to different product categories. It works well, when you've got fix values all over your product. In my case thats the point.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I'm glad Product Addon suits your needs.

    When you purchased PMC, do they give you a full documentation? And would it be possible to read it ?
    Thx

    Do you know in wich file(s) are located the calculation formulas ?
    Thx in advance.
