Hello,
I’m evaluating various shopping cart systems and need the cart to do something very specific before I dive in and start building the site.

My client is a curtain manufacturer and would like to have dynamic pricing of products based on the sizes specified by the customer. For example a customer selects the base style of curtain they wish and then specifies the width and height of curtain required. The system would then work out the total cost of material needed dynamically based on fixed square meter prices. A customer than has additional options to choose such as hand stitched or machine, and various other customizations that can be selected on a base product.

Can Magneto do this?

Thanks

Lee

From what I can tell, you would need to have a configurable product in a bundle product. This is not implemented in Magento yet, but it is in the roadmap according to this thread: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/17063/

This could be done using a configurable product and setting up an attribute for each variable you would like to use for your configurable (type, size etc.) You may need to use an extension to get the finer details such as pricing calculation exactly as required.
