    Hi Nick,

    Apologies for the late response, but I did not get an email with your post.

    What modification you are talking about?

    Is it something you changed or is it something you want me to change?

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Basically, I like your WP plugin and would like to know if this is possible.

    I would like this plugin to use the real time silver and copper price chart to alter the selling price + margin (either fix amount or %) just like you did with the gold.

    For your gold price, I also need 14k, 18k purity factor as well.

    Also, your gold price has purity factors(22k, 24k) just like the silver price(.99 fine silver and .925 sterling).

    Please advise

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    That surely can be done.

    Do you have an API to get the prices at real time?

    Also, would you like to sponsor such improvements?

    Bear in mind that the original plugin had a $200 cost.

    BTW, I have just released version 1.0.2 which adds 18k and fixed an issue with WooCommerce 2.0.5

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    Hi Gabriel,

    I too have an interest in the improved plug in for gold and silver. Will it have a percentage or fixed price for sellers margin? And have weight posted as troy oz rather then kg?

    Do you have a beta pre release program we can use?

    Thanks,
    john

    Hi Joy,

    I am happy to know that you are interested in the improved version too.

    Would you like to sponsor such improvments?

    Also, I wonder where to get the real time rates? Do you happen to know a service which provides an API?

    Weight already comes directly from WooCommerce, which ever you set there is used at the plugin.

    Currently there is no beta pre release version, I don't know if it is needed.

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    i didnt notice this thread! sorry for creating a new one! I am interested in the silver modification. I'm a complete newbie and i dont know how to help (apart from donating, which i will do if you can make this happen!)

    I'm planning on selling 1 troy ounce silver coins and which i would like to track the 'silver spot price' + margin (either fix amount or %) like above.

    Hi tigso,

    Donations are one sure way to make it happen.

    But I wonder how to get current price of silver?

    How do you manage to know the 'silver spot price'? Do you read it in nwespapers, news sites or what?

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    I'm after the silver spot price, not to be confused with the silver futures price (ishares).

    Silvers 'code' is 'XAG', and I live in the UK with the currency code of 'GBP'. A quick google search of 'XAG/GBP' pulls up loads of sites with the live price (I'm guessing its live although it could be slightly delayed.) for example xe.com

    After hours of searching i found a site called http://www.likeforex.com/, which provided me with some code which i could paste into my site to give me the live price. at the moment i have used it as a widget in my side bar visable on blog posts. If you take a look on my site http://www.silverstacker.co.uk you can see I have a 'live' price

    Does this help?

    @cutter2222, thanks for reporting it.

    Would you please create a new thread (topic) for this request?

    This one is about improving the plugin with more karats, adding other metals like cooper and silver, adding online real time price checking.

    Wow, I think there is a lot of things here.

    For sanity, I will answer to tigso and then close this topic.

    Hi tigso,

    Thanks for the info, I did went to http://www.likeforex.com/ and see some exchange rate for Silver to GBP.

    Also went to your site, but did not see any live prices there.

    So I still don't know how to get the live prices for silver.

    But this plugin still can help you. What it does is to calculate the price of a product based on it's weight and a value for each weight unit.

    So if a product weights 10 lbs and each lb is worth 1.5GPB, then product price would be 15GPB.

    Plugin would calculate the price for all products, it is be just a matter of manually adjusting the 'reference weight price' every time it changes.

    Does it help?

    Regards,
    Gabriel

    Hmm, seems I can't close the topic.

    Well, I just marked it as resolved and will not answer at this topic anymore.
