I am trying to find a solution for a specific product flow;
For example on my front page I want to have a 5 steps process more or less like this:
step 1: select a subscription with some options
Step 2: select a number of products with some options
Step 3: select more products...
Step 4: Validate all of the above (unless I have a way to force specific option based on a previous step)
Step 5: Confirm and checkout.
The thing is, some hidden options are based on other product options selections and are added throughout the process. In Step 5 I should see one price that is a monthly recurring subscription (selected in step1) and another price totaling the selections (selected in steps 2 and 3 + some hidden price based on some options selected in step 1)

Thanks for any guidance.

I have moved your topic to a more suitable forum so you can get a quicker response.

What do you mean by subscriptions ? what are they exactly ? categories ?

Ok, so you are using OC v1.5.6, with the new Profile fonction.

First of all, I think there are 2 different things here ...

1 - Subscription for products:
You setup multiple subscription profiles in Admin "Catalog>Profile".
Then you setup the products using one or more of the Profiles.
So when the customer shops he/she can select to repeat is order according to the profile he/she chooses.

2 - Subscription as a product:
You setup multiple subscription profiles in Admin "Catalog>Profile".
Then set them as products customers can buy.
They will be charged regularly depending on what the profile settings are.

I can't see other possibilities other than these two.

In all honesty I haven't really explored the Profile function in depth, but I don't think you can add a subscription to the cart, unless it has been setup as a product first.

As I understand it, "Profiles" are for products only, and "Recurring Profiles" are for orders already placed (so they can be renewed after).

I hope this helps.

This helps for my step 1 and thanks for such a quick response. I will play with this and see how it goes.

I still need to find a way to link the 5 steps somehow and make options available based on what was selected in a previous step and also the double price display at the end.

Thanks again
