I am trying to decide which ecom atform to use for an upcoming clients site. The client sell products which prices are commodity based ie fuel/metals etc. I want to set the price of each item to be linked to this.

Methods I’ve come up with.

1 products have assigned quantity. Ie weight in grams. Then in another module you set the price per gram and update pricing preferably via SQL since other methods seem slow.

2 products use either a 1x formula for pricing and I can assign variables x y z etc a set amount.

Either way I need to be able to set the price per ounce on metals etc and have that automatically adjust all prices accordingly.

Any thoughts or ideas of extensions I can use or methods and suggestions for making my own.

Have a look at the Price Calculator and see if you might be able to use this.
