Product Section Enhancements

Product Price by Linear Interpolation Formula

Earlier, for Price Defining Method – 'Range Based with Multiplication and' ‘Dynamic/Custom size’ there was Direct Price Calculation done. Due to this pricing, as the quantity increased the pricing decreased.

In this release, we will introduce an advanced feature – ‘Linear Interpolation formula’ for the Product Price calculation for the ‘Range-based with multiplication’ and ‘Dynamic/Custom size’ pricing method. It will be setting based.

This will allow you to charge customers the same price for each unit. It will help maintain the marginal profit for each unit regardless of the units sold in order.

Go to, Admin >> Product >> Action Menu of any product >> ‘Edit’ option

The product price for each quantity within a range varies, the price for each quantity will increase in arithmetic progression. Until now the product price remained the same for all the quantity within a range.

Example: Suppose Customer orders 1200 quantity of business card –

Product Section742.png

Now normal price calculation.

Increase quantity will be decrease price

Quantity = 1000, 1000 * 0.5 = 500

Quantity = 1200, 1200 * 0.4 = 480 (Price decrease even quantity higher side)

Linear price calculation

y = y0 + (x-x0) ({y1 - y0} / {x1-x0})

Product Section743.png

Calculation for Quantity - 1200

Linear Price = 0.5 + (1200-1000) ((0.4-0.5) / (5000-1000))

Total Price = 1200 * 0.495 = 594

Thus, price is maintained in the linear form concerning an increase in quantity.

  • Price calculation will be done by the given formula to maintain price based on entered quantity.
  • Price calculation would apply to the product and its additional option base price and vendor price.

Product Options – Master

Another major feature that we are introducing in this release is Product Options. Through this, you will have the provision to configure Product Options only once and assign them to multiple products.

Default/minimum value for additional options

  • The current system didn’t have any provision to enter/display the minimum and default values in ‘Text-box with or without multiplication’ fields. So now we have developed an interface to add minimum value and the default value for the ‘Textbox with or without multiplication’ option.
  • Product Section7413.png

  • If the default value is less than the minimum value then the default value will not be displayed at the front end.

Size based set-up cost

  • Product Section7414.png

  • For predefined products also we have added a similar column, where Admin can add the setup cost.

Price Calculation

  • If the size-wise setup cost is added then the product price calculation will be as follows –
    • Total Product Base price = Product Base price + Product Set up cost + Size based setup cost.
  • If the admin configured both setup cost – ‘product setup cost’ & ‘size based setup cost’, then the system shall consider both setups cost in the ‘Total Product base price’ calculation.
Note – This size based setup cost is not available for the ‘Dynamic Size’ Pricing Method.

Duplicate additional options for the same product

  • Earlier, we allowed to duplicate the Additional Options but the product list didn’t include the same product from where the additional option was being duplicated.
