calculate per kg instead by piece


can a customer buy per/kg instead per quantity.
for example a customer maybe wants to buy 3 kg of apples. so while he will going to order he will say that he need 3kgs and this will be calculated by the price.

Is it possible to add this ??

Yes, sure, you can sell products in kg. In order to do this you should set the price for your products per kg and add some text (for example “Apples (1 kg)”), which will allow your customers to see that this price was set for a kilo. Once you do this, customer will be able to set in “qty” field how many kilos of this product he want to buy.

The only thing you should remember, that customer will be able to order whole number of kilos (1, 3, 10, etc. ), but not (2.5, 4.5, etc.)

However, this solution will allow you to sell products in kilos (if you set price per kg) and by the piece in the same store.

Unfortunately, it is not possible using described above workaround. The thing is that qty can be integral number only.

Alternatively, you can use product option functionality. You will need to:
1. Create “textfield” product option for each product, which should be sell in kilos. In this field customer will be able to set any weight value (1.5, 0.3, 10 etc.).
2. Hide “qty” field from product details page (in order to not confuse your customer) as described here: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/41995170/...product%20page

Once you do this, your product details page will look like here:

and your customers will be able to set any weight value, which they need.

The drawback of this workaround is that it is not possible to track inventory correctly. Each time when customer buy products (does not matter what value s/he has set in product options textfield) its value will be reduced by one. Therefore, if it is important for your to track your inventory, I recommend you to use first workaround.

I agree that this functionality can be really useful for some of our customers. If you consider that this functionality should be added in Ecwid, please, vote for this idea here: http://ideas.ecwid.com/forums/22031-...ntities-say-fo and we will email you when it is released.

As for now, you can use one of workarounds described in these posts:
