# Combinations options and the price

I am sorry for my English. Language I know badly, therefore the text translates an electronic interpreter.

My sentence.

At a combination of parametres there is a possibility to instal customisation “to Inspect quantity of the goods with parametres”. In this case for each separate position it is possible to expose the article and the quantity.

The sentence consists in that on analogy to add the same possibility and for the goods price as if for the goods the considerable quantity of parametres, and influences price change more than one parametre - that possibility is great that in different combinations the price delta will not be identical.

For example:

``` Colour -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Width | the Maple,\$ | the Beech,\$ | Grey,\$ | the Cherry,\$ -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1200 mm 1300 1300 1300 1500 1600 mm 1400 1400 1400 1575 1800 mm 1500 1500 1500 1650 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ```

In the given example for “Width” both step increase the price on 1000. But:

For width of 1200 mm delta for colour: \$ 0/0/0/200;

For width of 1600 mm delta for colour: \$ 0/0/0/175;

For width of 1800 mm delta for colour: \$ 0/0/0/150;

As it would be ideal, if at evolution of combinations of parametres, the list was output without those combinations which are specified, how eliminated. I will explain, why. There are some parametres used for all goods, but in different groups of the goods different sets of variants of parametres are used. And if at the list there will be all combinations their quantity can pass for some hundreds, thus real from them are 40-60.

I believe that you should be looking towards “Product Options” [url]CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation

You will need to add prices per product option, if this is not 100% correct, then consider “exceptions” [url]CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation

That is, in this example you advise to me to create parametres Width, Color1, Color2, Color3.

```Width: 1200 | \$0 1600 | +100 1800 | +200 Color1: the Maple | 0 the Beech | 0 Grey | 0 the Cherry | +200 Color2: the Maple | 0 the Beech | 0 Grey | 0 the Cherry | +175 Color3: the Maple | 0 the Beech | 0 Grey | 0 the Cherry | +150```

To create combinations of parametres. In this example instead of 12 them it will turn out 36. Then to eliminate 24 from them. In this case is easier, it seems to me, to divide the goods into three: 1200, 1600, 1800. And in each of them to make a choice on colour.

I also wish to tell about it: if the final price is influenced by two and more parametres - probably, it will be very difficult to achieve the correct price for combinations.

Sorry to bump an old topic.

It seems some sort of system / interface is required to manage these option / variant combinations - both allowed (valid and in stock) and forbidden (non-existent or no stock or end-of-life) options.

We were planning to use minimum of two sets of options for most products, but due to the impossible nature of compiling these manually, via a restricted web browser, there must be a solution to create a matrix and block particular combinations and permit others - easily and on the fly!

Having over ten thousand to twenty thousand products (unique SKU’s), this could be reduced to a manageable and realistic 3000 to 5000 products by creating option combinations, each with code, preferably SKU to, and images, etc…

However, you CANNOT create option: images, modifiers \$ and combinations in a csv for upload - due to limitation on fields available (ex/im), and changing of option numbers with the creation of each new combination set (created from original Colour option set - unchecking link box) is just unrealistic via excel and other tools!

Help!!!

Simple windows application or script to interact and offer enhanced GUI for performing various common ecommerce tasks - this is what is needed!

But how much???

Can we use on Intranet? (no internet), or Workstation? Or via browser?
