Hello all,

I have a product in which the price depends on two options and am not very sure how to set it up within opencart. For example, say I sell table clothes, I have two options for the product, size and thickness. Base price would be $5, larger would be $5 more, and thicker would be $5 for the normal, but $10 more for the large.

The way it is setup now, a customer could choose the Large sized tablecloth, with the thicker material, but only pay $15 rather than $20, making me lose money. I hope my explanation made sense. Is it possible to charge the correct price? Even through some free or paid Mod?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Why not set up 2 options, one thickness and one for size? would that work?

That is how it's setup at the moment, and it won't exactly work. Sorry for the bad example.

I have a Gauze that I sell, there are 3 sizes (sm: $1, md: $2, lg: 3), each size has a different price. Also each gauze has a thickness, 3-ply ($5, $6, $7, respectively with size), or 8-ply ($8, $9, $10, respectively..).

Additionally you can buy a single box, or a case of 10 boxes. So there are a total of three options, and some of the prices depend on the options chosen before them.

So if I try to create a single product, and give it a base price of $1 for the lowest costing item, the small 3-ply.

The first option for the size would be simple, just +$1 for the md, and +$2 for the large.

The trouble comes trying to incorporate the second option, because the price for the 3 and 8-ply depend on the size chosen above.

So if the second option, Thickness was given, how can I set the correct price for the 2 thicknesses? If the customer wanted size small, and 8-ply the price would be $8, but if they wanted large 8-ply it would be $9, there is no way to setup different prices to these options based on previous options correct?

So sorry for the lengthy write-up, I appreciate the help.

Is there any way to solve this issue?
