Add to Cart giving the same price

Add to Cart giving the same price

I I have added more than one add to cart button on my product details page. It has more than one price attached to each product. However when click add to cart on the web page, it will add that price to the shopping cart but when I try to add to cart another cart from the same product, all it does is add the same price again, so you get 2 items of the product with the same price instead of two different prices.

I created one Products table with serveral price fields in depending on the length of subscription.

Is there a way this will work?

the problem is that both products use the same ID, so the cart considers them the same product.

You have the item information coming from a database table, but you are setting the add to cart button up as a static add to cart button.

For the way this page is configured, you would be better off using static data in the add to cart button bindings, then trying to bind to the recordset columns.

Thanks for that, that seems to have got it working when I select the price column as unique in ecart object. The only thing I cant do is to distinguish between say 1 year (Mag) and 2 Year (Mag) in the cart, so although they are listed separately by Mag subscription period they just appear as the Mag name.

Before I got around this by adding separate price values to ecart object and then binding them to the respective fields and then using the show region utility to display the right ones, but I couldnt get beyond the checkoit stage. it kept failing when clicking on paypal express checkout button.

So is there a way I can do this thanks.

make sure that each magazine has a unique ID.

if each has a unique ID, they will be added as separate line items to the cart

They are coming up in seperate lines but the titles are the same for different subscription prices. Maybe its the way I have set up the table structure? Might it be best to put the Subscription prices put into a separate table and add MagazineID as a foreign key?

This is because you are using the same recordset to populate the title in the cart.

You could append information in the bindings for each add to cart button in order to differentiate. For instance instead of using the same value in both add to cart server behaviors:

<?php echo($row_Recordset1['Magazine_Title']); ?>

you could use:

<?php echo($row_Recordset1['Magazine_Title']); ?> 1 yr


<?php echo($row_Recordset1['Magazine_Title']); ?> 2 yr
