How difficult will it be to add "quantity" to attributes?
This is the scenario:
We're offering books in different sizes with a variable amount of pages. This can vary anything from 1 to 200 pages.
- The easy way but most laborious solution is to create 5 products (for each size) with a pages attribute at increments of 10 which will give you 20 options when selecting.
This would result in the customer choosing the book, from a selection of 5 of the same style. Once the product is open the customer can then select the amount of pages, but only in increments of 10. Issues I have with this solution: (1) Will take very long to setup each product. (2) Will confuse the customer on the catalog page with 5 of the same product.
- The hard way but most practical is to have 1 product with an attribute of size an a dependent attribute of cost per page to which the customer can add amount of pages.
Reason I like the second solution. Even though the initial setup will require more brainpower the product setup will be easy as pie and the customer will have very little thinking to do as they are given 1 product at verious sizes with any quantity of pages.
For obvious reason I'm interested in going to second route.
I'm not too familiar with PHP, although I can follow instructions. Am I dreaming or can this be done?
Having combed the interwebs for an answer I've found many answers to some of my older questions, but this one still has me stumped.
I've found no contributed modules for this either on Ubercart.org or on Drupal.org. I've found many people asking for this kind of functionality.
• If this is an obvious solution I'd appreciate help.
• If this is a more complicated matter I'd appreciate a quote.
