    OK, so… here’s my scenario…

    Using woo for a food delivery website and Ionic mobile app.

    Need to provide options for some products, example… pizzas need an option to select extra toppings, with each topping selected adding an extra $ to the item price.

    I need to do this with variations as (for the moment), I can’t get the app to pull in extra data from woocommerce product addons plugin, but it will pull in variations.

    So, I thought we could set an option to have up to 3 extra toppings with each pizza, and have 3 drop downs to select the extra toppings. That bit is easy.

    But, the pricing manipulation is giving me a headache.

    The item needs to have it’s base price, the price the customer pays if they don’t want any extra toppings, and then if anything is selected in the 3 drop downs, it needs to increase the price by for example $1 for each drop down that has a selection in it.

    Anyone know how I can set it up to do this?

    Any help greatly appreciated. 🙂

    Hey there,

    Product Add-ons would indeed have been my first suggestion, but you’re already tried that.

    This is a fairly complex development topic. I’m going to leave it open for a bit to see if anyone is able to chime in to help you out.

    Thank you Hanna.

    I have to ask, seeing as how you’re representing Automattic… why oh why didn’t they just have woocommerce product addons output included in the rest api output?

    Seems a bit silly that much fuss is made of the excellent woocommerce rest api, and… they produce plugins that aren’t integrated into their own api???

    Very short sited, I think. :\

    Del.

    That’s a really good question and touches the heart of the open source concept!

    Product Add-ons is a premium plugin that we’ve developed at WooCommerce.com and earn revenue from – it doesn’t belong in the core WooCommerce API. It would be the same if we added support for our Bookings plugin or the Modern Tribe Events plugins into core: it wouldn’t be in the spirit of lean, open source software that everyone can work with. We don’t own WooCommerce, even though we have a lot of influence in what happens with it. While we (WooCommerce.com and Automattic) do need to make a profit to survive as a company, I’m happy to say that altruism is still alive in the form of a strong open source community.

    If you’d like to see Product Add-ons included in the API, that would need to be added in to the Product Add-ons plugin itself. You’re welcome to add it to our Ideas Board – others can then vote on the ideas, and we use it to track all requests. You can find it here: http://ideas.woocommerce.com/forums/133476-woocommerce

    I will do that, Hannah.

    I didn’t mean that the plugin should necessarily be part of WooCommerce core, but just that the output should be integrated with the WooCommerce API.

    I think that would increase it’s value as a paid plugin. I mean… why would I choose to have to custom code integration? if there was a plugin that included it… it would get my money every time.

    Hey there,

    Thanks for explaining further – you just happened to hit on a topic that I’m passionate about, so I was happy to pull out the soap box. 🙂

    Adding it as an option to the Product Add-ons plugin would certainly be a good idea – thank you for adding it as a suggestion!
