Hi Guys,

Hope, you can help me out.

I am making an e-commerce website for one of the fast food restaurants. The scenario -

Chicken --- 1 pcs-£1.29
2 pcs - £2.00
5 pcs - £3
(I want all these options in a Dropdown Menu so that customer can choose)
+
Add a Dip (Mayo) - £0.40
(optional, they might want to add something)

And while customer places an order, I need to know when they want to get it delivered…

Please help

Magento can handle that using Configurable Products.
Here are a couple of resources to help explain the concept:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/knowledge-base/entry/tutorial-creating-a-configurable-product/
http://keith.kg/magento/2010/02/tutorial-set-up-configurable-products-in-magento/

And for the delivery time, you can either use another attribute with a drop down for the customer to select from, or use a text field to have them enter the delivery time.

Hello!

For indicating delivery time you can use this extension http://amasty.com/delivery-date.html. It will enable you to:

- Enable visitors select days and time of delivery
- Exclude any dates from your delivery plan
- Let customers create delivery messages
- Set minimal and maximal delivery intervals
- Customize delivery data display according to your needs

You can also add a custom field on checkout page to get this information. You can use FME Magento extension for Order attributes to place custom fields on checkout page.

This module allows you to add multiple attributes such as file input, text message, date, yes/no, select options etc. and position them as per your design requirement.

Hi,

As for product delivery, I would advise you the Delivery Date and Notice Magento extension. Without adding any extra pages to the checkout process, the module provides new options for your customers. By filling in two fields, they can choose their preferred delivery arrival dates as well as leave a message for their postal or delivery person. Best of all, your customers will be instantly informed as to any dates when delivery is unavailable to them (i.e., weekends, holidays, recurrent days of the week, isolated days).

Find the complete list of features, screenshots and demo on the product page.

Hello,

Agreed with Neil

Configurable product is best option to deal with the problem you described. With Configurable product, you can manage different QTY, prices, sizes, etc. easily. Also, delivery time could be manage with drop down attribute perfectly.

We did this for our many ecommerce clients using Magento shopping cart.
