Updating price and storing data for product variables on Add to Cart page.

On this page we have a product with three product variable types - Colour, Size and Weight.

The client enters details for each variable type option when they are adding/editing a product in the content management section of the site.

Each variable type option has the following:
1) Title
2) Price (any additional cost incurred by selecting this variable)
3) Weight (any additional weight incurred by selecting this variable)

So a client might the Colour type and then add:
1) Red
2) £2.50
3) 1kg

When a customer selects the Red option for the product, we want it to update the price and ensure that the additional weight is also stored.
Is this easily achevied? Happy to run a Premium Support session on this if you have time sometime soon.

Thank you.

You can do it with ajax and plugins... just like the tutorial on dynamic dropdowns with Databridge v2.

If you don't want to digest that tutorial and the concepts, then I could do it in a premier support session as early as tomorrow.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have realised the inventory implications of this...each variable will need an inventory level set, and that variable will need have a calculation done on that field in order to show current levels of inventory for the main product and each variable of that product. Eesh.

I'll need to run through the inventory example and work this out before I implement the AJAX menus on the product detail page, which could take me some time. :S

Be in touch as soon as I hit a wall! :|
Thank you.
