Configurable products

Question: Grouped attributes cannot be deselected in Magento. Is this possible in cobby?

Yes, this is possible in cobby. Please see the checkbox in the attribute: Grouped Attributes.

What prices does a config use? / Automatic Price Determination

  1. The config takes the prices from the attribute options. This means that they are derived from the colour and size, for example.
  2. When saving in cobby, the job status turns yellow with a "!" in the middle:

The display of a yellow job status with an exclamation mark is not an error, but only an indication of necessary price changes. This appears if, for example, you change the price of a simple but do not adjust the attribute option price in the config.

What does the Automatic Price Determination do?

  1. The difference between the config and the simple is calculated.


Before table (view without automatic price determination):

If, for example, a config contains a simple product with a price of 14,00€ and a product that costs only 7,00€, the relevant amount for the automated price adjustment is also 7,00€. This means: The lowest price limit of a config, i.e. the cheapest, associated simple article, is created as the price.

After table (adjusted price):

  1. Next, this difference is entered for the respective attribute in the option (see images).

Note: If there is more than one super attribute, a calculated, automatic solution is not possible. The reason for this is that it is no longer recognised which difference is necessary for the determination.

What is the best way to create configs so that they are in the right order? (parent article → child article)

  1. create the config
  2. create the simples
  3. assign them
