Variation option pricing stacking - how does it work?
I have a kind of complicated setup - my main product is priced $0.00, and the actual price depends on the drop-down choices from two of variation groups. (I'm using the shopping cart to sell advertising & premium advertising spots... I know that's not its intended purpose, but it's the most flexible cart regarding user input out there, which makes it perfect for... just about anything :-) ).
I'm trying to control the actual price through two variation groups instead of creating bunches of duplicate products, but the main product total always says "Make your selections for price" or "Calculating". I've changed the price calculation settings to "Accumulative on top of one another in order displayed", and it didn't make a difference.
Product price $0.00
Variation1 dropdown (city1)
Variation1 dropdown (city2)
Variation2 checkbox1 (spot1, $100 in city1, $70 in city2) -> variable price based on Variation1
Variation2 checkbox2 (spot2, $50 in city1, $30 in city2) -> variable price based on Variation1
(Different cities have different pricing, published spots cost differently based on location in publication)
Variation3 checkbox1 (1week, -60%)
Variation3 checkbox2 (2months, 70%)
(Different time lengths cost more or less than the base calculated base price above)
Can this be done?
