We're looking for guidance on the best way to accomplish selling a service (B) along with a physical product. The service is one price for a bunch of items (A's). You should only be able to buy one service (B) with a group of items A's. The screen shot show our attempt with groups. The biggest challenge is that the the additional quantity is just ignored when you add it to cart when we fix it to 1 item (no messaging).
We investigated many plugins, but all seem to have a shortcoming for what we want to accomplish -did we miss something?
1. Define a relationship between Product A and B
2. Pricing for A's is fixed per item but varies with quantity
3. Pricing for B is fixed for quantity ranges of A (1-499, 500+)
We purchased both plugins (Gravity Forms and the WooCommerce plugin). We still are unable to get a fixed price added to our pricing model. We have tried a calculated field, but can't get a fixed price added to an item.
These individuals seemed to trying to do the same thing we are:
Another way to think about it is:
Product A is a $5.00 coffee cup.
Product B is a custom design service for the coffee cup.
If you buy "off the shelf" coffee cups the price is $5.00.
The custom design service is $250 for up to 499 coffee cups.
The custom design service in $0.50 for quantities over 500 coffee cups.
100 off the shelf coffee cups - Line total = $500
100 custom design coffee cups - Line total = $750 = $500 cups + $250 design service
499 custom design coffee cups - Line total = $2745 = $2495 cups + $250 design service
1000 custom design coffee cups - Line total = $5500 = $5000 cups + $500 design service
Can anyone give us guidance on how to configure gravity forms to accomplish the above? Pretty sure it's a calculated price manipulation, but so far have gotten the correct behavior. WooCommerce support sent us here to gravity forms (http://support.woothemes.com/requests/59819).
