Subject Re: building itemized component product listing in the cart view
Date Sat, 02 Apr 2011 08:48:37 GMT
Thanks for the reply. What I actually want to achieve is using the
configure process to define packages of products at order time. I did
look briefly at marketing packages, but it seems they must be
predefined. I've got virtual products set up now with variants. But
need to be able to configure packages of those variants which are
defined by customer choices at order time. This can be done using a
configurable as a parent product, but once choices are made and the
customer adds to the cart. Only the aggregated price is shown and one
item the config product not it's constituent which would be the
variants under the virtual. The details of those cannot be seen and
don't seem to be in the context of the show cart view. Just wondering
if anyone knew where would be the best place to add this but maybe I
should ask on the dev mailing list?
