using "Enable Absolute Price"

I’m not sure if the following is because I’m missing something or if it’s an extension issue so was hoping for a tidbit of advice.

We use the Advanced Product Options extension by Mageworx and all of our products that have custom options that trigger price differences are set up with actual prices and we tick a box that has Enable Absolute Price.

For example, we have a simple listing in Magento for a dog toy that is $17.95 for a small and $19.95 for the large. We set up normal price as $17.95, however when we set up our custom options we set up the two sizes and price the small at 17.95 and the large at 19.95 and tick the Enable Absolute Price box and so that’s how the prices show up in the website.

When I pushed these to eBay using M2E, both of the options are pushing correctly (ie Size: small and large) in the dropdown, however the price of the small is $35.90 and the large is $37.90 so it’s adding our base price plus the amounts we set up as the values for absolute pricing.

Now, I’m not sure if the Enable Absolute Price is a standard Magento thing or if it’s to do with the extension so I don’t know if there is a way around this.

We’ve had other development work done that uses the custom options and absolute pricing we’ve set up so if it’s not an easy fix in M2E settings, can someone recommend a developer that’s very familiar with M2E code that could possibly get it to interact with our custom options extension?

Hey Jeff

This is a new one for me as I haven’t come across any business using this before, I will have a look around and see what I can find. In the mean time if anyone could shed any light on this then please do so :)

Hi Dave,

I think the easiest option is to not use the absolute pricing option and update variation listings to standard Magento pricing (ie +$x.xx for each product size in the variation).

I tested the dog leads I had set up and the pricing was correct when I unticked use absolute pricing and then changed the variations to +$x.xx

Now I just need get our developers to fix up our customer UI so that the actual value appears against the variations and not the annoying +$x.xx

kind regards
