Add a surcharge to product, but only once! How to?

I’m currently finishing up our Magento installation after a 8 months (!) period of filling, designing and customizing. Finally! The systems works great, better then all the software I have ever worked with, and that includes SAP Business One.

Anyway, I have a interesting question. This is the case. Let’s say I have 4 different products in 2 different attribute sets:

Attribute set 1
Product A
Product B

Attribute set 2
Product C
Product D

I want to add an amount to the price of the product. Keep in mind that not all products from my database will get a surcharge. So a catalog- or a shopping cart price rule will not work, since (if I understand correctly) those options can only remove something from the price, whether it is from a cart or from a product itself.

The thing is though, I only want to add this surcharge once, no matter how many product there are ordered. For instance: the surcharge will bee USD 5. I will order 5 times product A, 3 times product C and 1 time product D. The surcharge will remain USD 5. Another example: I will order only 1 time product A. The surcharge is again USD 5.

Now, how do I create such a thing? Should I add an attribute ‘surcharge’ with my desired amount, and then work something out with a catalog price rule? Or do you have other suggestions?

Thanks so much!

And greetings from the Netherlands wink

They need to be created in the same way as Delivery, Discounts, etc.

Could you maybe be a little more precise? What do you mean by that? Do I have to make another ‘shipping rate’ or something? But how can I make sure that they are only complicable to my selecte products. Mind you: not all my product will have this extra surcharge.

Thanks for your time!
