Add a new product with prices attached to sizes

Relatively new, coming from ZenCart and so far it doesn’t seem intuitive.

How do I add a product (no base price) with different sizes - and - each size has it’s own price.

Thank you, Duaine

You’ll have to choose which way to go with representing the sizes. (and keep in mind that they are working on changes to configurable products)

The first thing you should decide is whether you are tracking inventory or not.
If not, you can use empty simple products as your sizes and associate them with various configurable products that contain all the product information. The sizes are reusable.  This is basically like defining a variable attribute (which does not exist).

If you are tracking inventory you could use custom options, or make each product you want to track a simple product and then associate them with configurable products in a way that makes sense.  (I don’t like this method, but I’m not tracking inventory either.)

I’ve figured out the configurable and simple product which is ok for small product attributes.

I have a product called Celluloid Stop Faces:

22 possible stop faces

each can be 5/8” or 15/16”

each can be Black or Red

each can be “no pitch” or 2 ft or 4 ft or 8 ft or 16 ft or 2’ or 4’ or 8’ or 16’

which equals 792 separate products.

Not realistic - I need a way around this

I have the same problem. I used bundles products. I saved each size as a simple product.

We need a way to save attributes sets with prices and then dynamically create the simple products. My site has well over 500 images so I need to find a quick way to do this.
