Support » Plugin: Markup by Attribute for WooCommerce » is it possible to markup attribute per “drop-down” selection?

  • Resolved EJneverdies


    basically, your example screenshots got me interested because i am working on a screen printing / DTG website. So what i need is a way to break down the markups based on a few key things, similar things but require separate costs.

    for screen printing
    1) price per shirt
    2) price per location
    3) price per color

    for DTG Printing
    1) price per shirt
    2) price per location

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    As laid out on your sample page, I’d say no. But let me explain how Markup by Attribute works and we’ll see if presenting the products differently might work.

    Markup by Attribute sets individual prices on product variations (for a variable product) based on the attributes that make up the variation. So, assume there is a 5% markup for red shirts and a 2% discount for extra-small. If you set the price at $25, the yellow medium variation would be set to $25. But the red extra-small variation would add $1.25 for red and subtract $0.50 for extra small, resulting in $25.75. This is done when you set the price, and not while the customer is shopping.

    Therefore, it will work only if all your variations can be expressed as global attributes — color, for instance. Things like location might be better handled by setting up shipping zones. And since you have 20 quantities for four sizes, those cannot be used as attributes because it creates 160,000 variations — times 26 colors are over four million variations! But if you created four products; Small, Medium, Large, and Extra-Large, you could get away with only 26 variations of each.

    Let me know what you decide!
