Oh please can somone HELP ME!

We’re using the default layout of magenta & have worked out how to customize most of it but really need some help with the shopping cart.

We need to show to different weights & prices for customers to choose from. EG 165g of Anzac Biscuits are $6.95 & 250g are $8.95.

We need to show both the weights & the prices under the one entry so they can choose which size to add to their shopping cart.

We have the weight under weight in the product entry but this is only for the shipping & does not show on the site. Plus we can only put one weight & one price in there.

Really look forward to someone helping us!!

You can add a new attribute for your configurable product that can present the Weight of the product. It makes all the sense to have two attributes for weight. One is the one that is used to tell the consumer how much the product weight (for example, a TV set weights 10Kg) but the real-weight that will be used for shipping calculations may be a different value because the box and accessories increase the displayed value.
