Hi. Is there a way for Prestashop to have some customers pay via weight and the others via price? i.e. to have both running concurrently?

thanks

Hello carterP,

Thank you for your question. There is not a "built-in" solution for this in PrestaShop, and I could not locate an Addon; so it would have to be custom coded.

A possible workaround could be adding another product, so one product can be sold by weight, and the other by price.

You could also post a question in the Official PrestaShop Forums, since it is frequented by developers, that may have worked with this before.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

How can you add a product which can only be sold by weight and another by price? I've not seen this choice anywhere?

Hello carterP,

After you add a product, you can then create product attributes. I recommend reading our guide titled "Understanding Product Attributes and Features in PrestaShop," which explains how they relate to products.

For example, you could:
  • Create a product titled "Carrots"

  • Create an attribute for each weight option (such as 1lb, 2lb, etc), and you can set a different price in the Impact On Product Price field

  • Create another product called "Carrots2" & set the price to $5.


Here is a helpful link to our full PrestaShop 1.5 Education Channel, where all these tutorials came from.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
