Default Product Options / Variants

Hi,

I need to upgrade from Litecommerce (old Litecommerce) and I am considering X-Cart but the demo's and marketplace modules I have seen do not seem to cater for what I think we need.

Does anyone know of any existing module which will let me :
1) ADD Product Options for example Size and Colour and add variants for each of these and the option to assign an image to each option.

2) After set up have these Product Options Groups and enabled the ability to assign to different Products.

3) The ability once assigned for each Product Option variant to have different prices specific to the Product to which they are assigned.

4) Ability to enable/disable Product specific variants.

I don't see in the existing Product Group Options/Variants how you can have 2 options and have different variants. For example,
if you have Sizes (Small, Medium, Large) and Colours (red, yellow, blue) how can you have
Size:Small Showing Colours: red/yellow only,
Size:Medium Showing Colours: red/yellow/blue
Size:Large Showing Colours yellow/blue

There must be a module out there that already does something similar to what I am looking for OR am I missing the point and is there a simpler way of doing this ?

I have this capability in my version of Litecommerce but am hesitant to get it custiomized again for Xcart as one major downside is that all the other product features for the site do not work or you have to have them customised to work with your site. So if someone has any thoughts on this I would love to hear them as this is a major feature of my site.

Thanks

Jane

To meet number 2, you will have to add this mode from BCSE: http://www.bcsengineering.com/store/global_product-options-for-x-cart.html
You can check with them to make sure it meets your requirements. You might have to ask them specifically about your #3 to make sure.

X-cart handles the product options differently than LC. You can look at the online documentation for variants for more information - the examples there may clarify it better for you: http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Product_Options#Managing_Product_Variants

You don't need a mod here. Use X-Cart Product Variants as Gb2world suggested earlier - http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Product_Options#Managing_Product_Variants

Do you mean being able to assign products options/variants to multiple products? It is supported out of the box, too.


> 3) The ability once assigned for each Product Option variant to have
> different prices specific to the Product to which they are assigned.

Could you please give me some example here?


> 4) Ability to enable/disable Product specific variants.

Product Variants can do that out of the box, i.e. you can configure certain combinations of Color and Size as available in your store and have others as not available.
