Can I add the same Child Products to different Parent Products?

Post by igcd » Wed May 22, 2019 1:28 am

I have a website that sells security cameras and NVRs (Network Video Recorder).

For these NVR's the customer can buy them with different hard drive sizes (e.g. 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, etc.).

The problem I have is that I have to go to each individual product and manually add multi variant child products

For Example:
8 Channel NVR - NO HDD = $100
8 Channel NVR - 1TB = $150
8 Channel NVR - 2TB = $200

And then if I want to create a new NVR and have the same different storage options I have to manually add those options.

Then if we change the price of one of the Hard Drives I have to go back and manually change the price of all the NVR's one by one.

I want to be able to make it so I can assign the same Child Product (Hard Drive) to different Parent Products (NVR) so if I create a new Parent product which will have the same child product, the child product's price will automatically be added to the parent product. And if I change the price of one of the Child Products it will automatically change the price for all the other Parent Products attached to it.

Is this possible? Is there a free extension or plugin on Joomla that does this?

Thanks

You posted a question about a similar website a couple of months ago but without explaining which shopping cart was in use. If the current question is about the same website, you need to tell us which shopping cart extension it is.

Alternatively, you should perhaps post the question to the support forum of the actual shopping cart.

Ok. Sorry about that.

The shopping cart extension is VirtueMart.
