We have developed a Lanyard Product Configurator for XTC, now we`re switching to Magento and Implementing it in Magento seems to be quite difficult. I read about this article here http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/adding_a_product_to_the_cart_via_querystring but I don’t want the products to be visible in the Magento Katalog.

1) Is it possible to add “invisible” products to the cart?
2) How do we apply Tier Pricing to all the products from that category?

I can answer number (1)

You can easily include hidden products in your URL for adding to the cart. If you built an extension and you know which products where always associated with the product, it would be easy to add all the products to the cart in the background.

In a sense I am adding multiple products to the cart through one call here

Midwest Quick Order Form

Your process would be similar, you just would not have to show the visitor the associated products.

(Although they would see them in the cart, I don’t know how you would want to handle that??)

If you need a product configurator where there is lots of scope to change / add / edit product configurations then I may be able to help.

Blueprint is a powerful product configurator.  It can be hosted on site or by us and we have integrated this into Magento for a client.

Languages, hiding features / setting defaults is all easily managed through our interface.  Take a look at the website if you think it might do the trick Product Configurator

The link above has some more detail and screen shots.  There is also a short video demonstration in our downlaods area of the site.

Kind Regards
Kevin

Hello

We have developed a module which extends standard magento’s attributes/options functionality and allows to setup flexible configurator based on rules which can be managed by admin. Also it allows your customers customize product colors/textures.

There are some docs:
