I'm using an out-of-the-box install of version 4.9. One of our product lines is custom engraving. We charge per character when over 25 characters. Is there a way to do this with options/variants with the default installation or will it require an add-on? I searched the add-ons and can't find one that does this.
There is no such variant - except the settings of the shipping rates which allow to charge per unit over a set quantity, but the unit is not applicable.
So you can create a standard product and a related product which can be called "Additional letters" and set the price for 1 letter. Then you can even give some quantity discounts for 10 or 20 additional letters.
This looks like it might work. Could you answer a few questions about it?
1) Can I have this add-on applied to a product that also has standard options/variants on it?
2) Can I apply more that one instance of this add-on to a product?
3) Can I set up a text box that has a one time additional fee? Meaning if they order 10 of the item with this add-on filled in it won't be 10 x $5.00 it will only be $5.00. It's basically a one time set-up fee.
4) Can I allow the customer to select an image to engrave?
5) Do you have a live demo?
