    is there a product configurator available?
    for example the customer selects a Product X and he can choose:
    material: X, Y or Z
    colour: red, blue, yellow
    size: small, medium, large
    etc

    and depending on the options, the price will change

    I can’t have it working and there is no example.
    I’m currently downloading v1.2. Maybe things have changed.

    Hi there.

    Yes, it’s possible.
    Steps:
    1. Create product attributes (boolean or select)
    2. Assign attributes to attribute family
    3. Set this attributes to few simple products
    4. Create configurable product and select simple products as variants

    Step 1 – create necessary product attributes (material, color, size) in Products -> Product Attributes.
    Step 2 – add these attributes to the product family of your choice in Products -> Product Families
    Step 3 – create simple products of the selected product family with different combinations of material, color and size
    Step 4 – create a configurable product of the same product family, click on Save
    Step 5 – after clicking on “Save” the page is reloaded, and now you have “Configurable Attributes” field available – select there “material”, “color”, “size” attributes
    Step 6 – select and link simple products to the current configurable product on the same page and click Save

    Now, the store frontend customers will see material, color and size options (displayed as drop-downs in the default frontend theme) on the view page of the configurable product. When they make their selections, the price information and availability block will reload to show the price of the simple product that matches the selected combination of options.

    OK. I thought that the process was different:
    1-Create product attributes
    2-Create a configurable product
    3-Generate all single products based on all possible combinations of attributes

    in the store front-end I see only the the product and details
    but as a customer I cannot choose product attribute/options

    in the store front-end I see only the the product and details
    but as a customer I cannot choose product attribute/options

    It’s hard to guess what’s missing without any details. Can you share the screenshots of the product edit and product view pages in the admin, and the product view page on the store frontend?

    the problem is that I do not have any standard product, all my products are custom-made wit many many options
    so this means for example 100 products x material 3 options x color 6 options x handle 5 options etc , in this case this means 100 x 3 x 6 x 5 = 9.000 products
    this is just a example, i have more options, this means I should have maybe 900.000 products

    I want that the system calculates the price after a configured product
    say product xyz costs EUR 1,00
    material-x=0,20 extra
    material-y=0,50 extra
    material-z=0,30 extra

    color-x=0,20 ex tra
    etc
    etc
    after finishing the configuration the customer will see the total price

    Configurable products in OroCommerce work differently.
    You will need to customize the application to achieve the desired behavior.

    Thanks Michael,

    Then for me it is better to use orocrm + magento, in magento this should be possible.
    in orocrm there is allready a good integration between orocrm + magento

    I preferred to use just orocommerce, but i think there is still much to do on development

    Each platform has its own unique set of features, and there is no platform that would do everything. It all depends on how much development effort is needed to build the feature you are looking for (“custom options”) in OroCommerce vs. building all B2B features that you need and other platforms do not have. The later may be a lot more to do on development.
