eCart Charges

I have a blank text box named 'reverse' for adding an engraving in my cart
If some-one wants an engraving I need to add a charge of 5.00 on each occassion this box is utilised

Any suggestions?

What server language?
I would add a column to my cart called "Engraving"
Then I would create a calculations in the cart:

TruePrice = [Price] + (([Engraving]!="")?5:0)

and I would update the calculation:

TotalPrice = ([Price] + (([Engraving]!="")?5:0)) * [Quantity]

Then update the cart display to show "TruePrice" instead of "Price"

Hi Ray

Thanks for the feedback

I'm coding in .php

I have already set up a column called 'reverse' which is collecting the reverse engraving details.

I've been trying to utilise the Charges feature. i.e. if 'reverse' != (emptycell) then add 5.00
But can't seem to get the right syntax.

thanks

Alf

You can't use charges without calculations in this case, I don't think. Did you try using the calculations I suggested? Is there a reason that technique won't work for you.

I don't think charges is the correct solution since each row may be different. Charges are used for totaling and manipulating the cart as a whole. Individual row variations must be handled with calculations.
