Hello all,

We’re building a new Magento store for our (mostly free) educational materials (booklets, DVDs, boardgames). Many of the booklets have a student- and a teacher-version. We would like to make sure that when a school orders the teacher-version, they also order at least 10 student-versions.

As I see it, this could be implemented two ways:
1. When a teacher-version is added to the cart, automatically add 10 student-versions .
2. Upon checkout, check if there are enough student-versions in the cart. If not, show a notice: “You need to order 10 or more of [link to product]”.

How can we achieve this? Is there an extension that can do this?

Any and all help is welcome! Even just a push in the right direction! wink
Alexander.

This sounds like a bundled or maybe a grouped product to me. You setup the individual products as simple products and then setup a parent bundled/grouped product.

I don’t think you’ll need anything special to get this done. If you’re having a hard time setting this up, let me know and I’ll post step by step directions when I get a chance.

Good luck!
