Creating a multi custom product
It's possible to create a product landing page that has multiple products linked to it so rather than having multiple products pages across a category you could link several 'child' products to a 'Parent; product. An example would be a Poster product where you have multiple sizes available A1, A2, A3 and A4 but have a 'Parent product' as Poster, and then your 'child' products are the sizes.
Firstly you will need create all your products including the product types and also including your 'parent' product.
Once you have these created you need to then navigate to the custom product section (Catalogue > Product Types > Custom Products) to create the MultiProductCustomProduct. You may need to raise a request with the helpdesk to allow access to this product type.
When in the custom product section you will need to Add new product and select the MultiProductCustom product type and select your 'parent' product to use as the master landing page item.
Once the product is created you will then be required to select your child products that you wish to display collectively on the Parent page. Select you items individually or select all together as a group and click the '+' button to add them together.
Once you have clicked the '+' button you will a section for each product where you can define some data for each child product.
The options for each product are:
Button css: - This allows you to custom the buttons look and feel using css
Button translation Key: - This is the custom name for the button you can add
Or select a Button translation: - These are preset selections to name the button None, Start, Add to Basket and Upload a PDF
In this example we will give the products the button names of each size so A1, A2, A3 and A4.
Once all the naming and css options are set click save and then we can go directly to the parent product page now to view the master product page.
As you can see the user now has the option to select one of these buttons and it will launch the product of the corresponding child product. If the child products are going to be Editor based products then you will need to set them to Skip product details page which is under the product info tab and product settings section of each product. This way the editor launches instead of the landing page loading.
NOTES: The Parent and Child products must ALL use the same pricing setup and be included using the same product group. Ultimately the Parent product will dictate the price of all the child products so it's imperative that they all share the same product group for accurate pricing when adding to cart.
