my questions relate to the Product Accessories extension here:

http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... on_id=2274

1. can this allow quantity price breaks for each accessory?

example:

accessory 1: 1-5|2.95-each, 6-10|2.75-each, 11+|2.50-each
accessory 2: 1-3|7.95-each, 4-8|6.75-each, 9+|5.50-each
accessory 3: 1-2|9.95-each, 3-6|8.75-each, 7+|7.50-each

2. how is the Product Accessories extension different from the Buy Together extension? What do they do differently?

http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... order=DESC

3. are the "product accessories" just other regular catalog items that are pulled in and displayed with the product, or are the product accessories completely different and priced differently? in other words, what if i have Item A that i would like to be a product accessory to display with Item B? will the pricing for Item A as a product accessory be the same when displayed with Item B? also, will any native quantity discounts in Item A be calculated when displayed as a product accessory of Item B?

4. how can you show attributes for each accessory, as mentioned by bogdand in the Comments? Can you release the code for this?

Hello,

I just bought the extension and is what I need.
Now I want to show attributes for each accessory on main product page.
I inserted this code (taken from attribute tab) after accessory name, but it will show main product attributes. How to show accessory attribute?
<table class="attribute">

<?php foreach ($attribute_groups as $attribute_group) { ?>

<thead>

<tr>

<td colspan="2"><?php echo $attribute_group['name']; ?></td>

</tr>

</thead>

<tbody>

<?php foreach ($attribute_group['attribute'] as $attribute) { ?>

<tr>

<td><?php echo $attribute['name']; ?></td>

<td><?php echo $attribute['text']; ?></td>

</tr>

<?php } ?>

</tbody>

<?php } ?>

</table>
Thanks, really need an extension like this but want to make sure it will do what we need

Hi, scanreg!

1) Unfortunately not. But I think to implement this feature in the future.

2) "Product Accessories" allows you to buy accessories that complement the main product.
The "Buy Together" are products that are part of the same category of product that the customer can buy together.

3) Accessories are regular products in the catalog that are displayed with the product.
I would like to implement what you want, but it is complicated to manage the cart.
Imagine that the customer gets a discount if they buy the product "A" with the accessory "B".
If the customer remove the accessory "B" of the cart? The product "A" is still with the discount.
This requires major changes to the core OpenCart and I do not wish it.

4) Some adjusts (no customizations) I help those who purchase the module to do.

OK?

Thanks for contact.

Then, would it be possible to sort of combine the Buy Together with a little bit of the Product Accessories so that we could:

1. display instant pricing changes in the product page (nice feature)

2. use the native volume discounting of the related products

3. allow customer to delete items in cart and have the quantity pricing automatically adjust

We like the dynamic pricing update of the Product Accessories feature but really we are fine displaying the Buy Together items so long as the native volume discounting of the Buy Together items can be used.

4. BTW, does the Buy Together extension allow for "discount if bought together" type of discounting? So if items A, B, and C are purchased together, this provides a special discounting?

Thanks :)
