Configurable product - Attributes images or gallerie
This is exactly what I need. I know you can create custom options but they do not export to csv. I need a system where I can upload a set of fabrics/finishes, for example “outdoor fabrics”, and then apply them to a range of products. Ideally when the customer selects the fabric/finish from either a dropdown or by clicking on the finish they want it would update the price.
Alternatively I could use jquery to grey out the other swatches or highlight the selected swatch, when a customer picks an option from a dropdown.
I think it’s going to need a bit of additional programming to make this work.
I know I could do a similar thing with configurable products but some of my items have 18 different fabric choices, that’s 17 extra simple products I would have to create. I have over 200 items like this so that’s just not an option.
