Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Price Code & Attribute Images

    Hi all; 2 requests:

    1. I’m building a WooCommerce/Generate Press website for my local not for profit theatre. They have acquired many items in their costume inventory and are finding a need for an online catalogue/inventory. I am using attributes, and ‘some’ variations but I’d like to be able to add images to either the attribute itself and/or to the attribute terms. If the user hovers over the term the image thumb will show. Have you seen anything like this?

    2. My second request is around grouping products into a price. For example, they will have a rental option in their pricing structure. For example, all pants are $2 to rent. Now, if I could create a “Price Code” so that when they want to increase all pants to $3, I can go to one place, find the appropriate “Price Code” and change the $2 to be $3 and see that all 300 pair of pants within that price code have been updated without having to go and change all pant prices one by one.

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

    Hi,

    For question 2:
    A certain price code as a product price when you create the product by default will not work because the price only accepts numeric values.

    What you can do here is create a ‘pants’ tag for all products that belong to ‘pants’. Via code you can then adjust the price of all products that contain the ‘pants’ tag.

    If you cannot or do not want to use a tag, you can also add a custom field to the product where you can enter a ‘price code’, then you can determine again with code: if the product contains a specific price code.. update the price for all those products.

    Because it may not be advisable to adjust the new price for the pants via code, it may be interesting to add a new menu item where you can adjust this via settings.

    This of course requires custom code, what is your experience in this? which method would you prefer from my explanation?

    Regards

    Thank you for the response. Of course, I have further questions related to your response.

    I thoughts about using tags, but I don’t know enough about custom code and neither do the volunteers, so that option is out.

    Actually, none of the options are ideal as they all require custom code if I’m reading corectly. I was hoping that there would be a way to map a field to the price field, easily.So far, the easiest way I can see is to not put any price in the price field and then have a price list, although that method negates the advantage of online orders.

    Hi @ginseng6

    For question 2:

    You could use a plugin like Product Add-Ons to create global add-ons that can be added to any product. Price changes made the add-on globally will then change the price for all products that include the global add-ons.

    https://woocommerce.com/products/product-add-ons/

    This plugin doesn’t track stock for the add-ons, it will just increase the price of the product it is attached to base on the customer’s selections.

    For question 1:

    I have another paid plugin called Variation Swatches and Photos that allows you to define colors or images at the attribute or product level.

    https://woocommerce.com/products/variation-swatches-and-photos/

    Both of these plugins are supported through the official WooCommerce Marketplace and by the developers that created them.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi @johndcoy ;
    Thank you so much for your response. I briefly visited the plug-ins you’ve suggested. I can’t envision how Product Add On’s plug-in will work but I see that there is a 30 day trial so I can try that out. I need a way to easily change the price of all items in a category or tag. So far, export/import seems the front runner.

    Re: Variation Swatches – I don’t think this is what I’m looking for. Let me try to provide an example. There are 10 pair of pants entered as 10 individual products. Each pair of pants has Leg Length as an attribute. The attribute terms are: hot pants, shorts, bermuda, capri and full length. So, on the product input page, I can select the attribute Leg Length and the attribute term as Bermuda but there are no additional variations for the customer to choose from. I just want them to be able to see what the lengths represent, almost like a definition.

    When the customer goes to view the pants example from above, they will see that they are Bermuda length but what does that mean? It may be a piece of clipart showing a human bottom half body form with pants on. Then, the image will have a line across to indicate each length. So, hot pants will have a line directly under the crotch, Shorts will have a line mid thigh, etc.

    I look forward to your response and thank you for your suggestions.

    The Variation Swatches plugin allows you to assign small images to attributes as customers make selections. Since you want to retain the text and just provide the images as information, I am not sure how to deliver this in a way within the variation option field.

    Maybe use WooCommerce Tab Manager to add a custom tab for Sizing Chart?

    https://woocommerce.com/products/woocommerce-tab-manager/

    IT has an option for global tags which would be a quick way to apply changes to the tab to multiple products at once.
