Configurable products: set default child product and show price for that product in product grid

Most of my configurable products have child products that are samples at a very low price – and mostly nearly the same price. That means that the “From” prices shown in the product grid (and in the layered nav) are pretty meaningless.

It would be more helpful to customers to set a default pack size – ie a default child product – and show that price in the product grid and layered nav. That way, the prices would helpfully show the customers the relative price of the products.

Alternatively, I have “Price Band” as an attribute on most products (but not all) and I could display the value in the grid instead of the From price.

What do you think would be best? And how would I go about it?

Thank you.

Hi Andrew,
Yes, I would agree it’s completely pointless to see your products that are eventually of the lowest price or are almost the same showing up in the navigation

Aside from modifying the range of price filters in the navigation, you can make more out of your products.That’s possible by using Magento‘s “Related, Upsell, and Cross- sell ” features.

Better check out our tutorials here https://understandinge.com/lesson/mb-083/

Thanks Badeth but I must confess I do not quite see how this applies to the problem.
Does anyone have any thoughts about removing the “From” price in the product grid or (much better) showing in the product grid just the price of the default product size and not a range of prices?

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your response.

I was just giving a suggestion on what you could do other than modifying Magento‘s default “FROM” or price range. But I do understand why you’d want to have the individual prices to appear.

Let’s keep this thread open for others to contribute and so you’ll find a way to do that.

I think you might be better off using an extension to solve this issue.
