Adding Boxed Sets vs Singles

Adding Boxed Sets vs Singles

I have a page that displays boxed sets of products. I have an add to cart object on the page and when they click this, it adds a boxed set of 24. This adds to the cart when it reloads the page while storing the sale price, or the regular price in a Session Variable.

I'm trying give the option of adding Single items but when I do this, it fails.

Basically, if I add the boxed to the cart, it does this but when I add the single, it used the "boxed price information. Same goes if one adds the single first, it then uses that when you add a boxed second.

I've tried killing the session after it reloads.
I've tried changing the partID so that it's different for boxed
I've tried going to a new page but it keeps that session info.

Anyone have some ideas? I'm sort of stuck.

By the way, how do you add multiple values ?

<input type="hidden" name="carname_eCart_1_ID_Add" value="<%=(rs.Fields.Item("ProdID").Value)%>">

This is asp (VB) and I want to try to add to the partID that is already saved. What's the correct way of adding "-boxed"

I'm just not sure how that can be appended to the following
... rs.Fields.Items("ProdID").Value)...

I think I've narrowed down the problem. I think it's doing this because it is using the ID (integer) to "track" the items that get added so when a product, with the same ID gets added, it uses the same pricing.

I don't think this really helps me so much because I don't know if it really is part of the "problem."

Just thinking out loud.

Yes, you need to use unique ids for each product.

I don't know how to append the value in VBScript. Any ideas?

I know you guys are moving fast away from supporting VB ASP but anyone there know hot to append to a value?

<input type="hidden" name="cartname_eCart_1_ID_Add" value="<%=(rs.Fields.Item("ProdID").Value)%>">

I've tried putting it in different places in this above but nothing worked. For some reason, it's hard to query this and get good results on Google...

Of course I would probably be better off just dumping this completely and use a different method to do this.

<input type="hidden" name="cartname_eCart_1_ID_Add" value="<%=(rs.Fields.Item("ProdID").Value)%>">



The answer is this: <%=(rs.Fields.Item("ProdID").Value & "333")%>">

However, that didn't do it. When I put this in, no error shows up but it also doesn't actually add anything.

I'm not sure what to do now. Plan A, B and C all failed...

the single item and the box set should be entered into the database as separate items so that each item will have a unique ID.

These "Boxed" items are more like "options" because they have the same product ID as the singles; I've simply multiplied the quantities to come up with a "boxed set." Because of this, I don't have product IDs for boxed items.

To make it more convoluted, this is a dealer area where they get special pricing.

I guess what I need is a graduated quantity pricing system. If they order 1 item, it's $5 each. If they order over 24 (or reach the boxed qty), it's $4 each.

If I had a consistent value like a Percentage off each, I could make a rule for this. However, because a rule is applied inconsistently to all of these items, I can't get my head around what a "general rule" would look like.

In addition, some of the boxed sets come in a box of 24 while others in a box of 6 so the rule would need to pull in those minimum numbers and apply the discount if those numbers were reached...

your boxed set and single item should have unique ID's if they have the same ID, they will not be treated by the cart as separate items.
