Custom Size Products

What are custom-size products?

Allow your customers to order a product with custom height and width, i.e. customers will get to decide the size of product they want to get printed.

Examples of such products are – banners, posters, yard signs, etc.

A custom size product will allow the customer to adjust the height of the product, or order a custom dimension of any product according to their needs.

Features for custom size products in OnPrintShop system –

  • Custom Price Estimation (Price)
  • Online design option for custom size products
  • Upload large files
  • Shipping Module – Package Configuration

How to configure custom size products?

To configure custom size products, follow the steps explained below –

Product Details Configuration

  • Go to Admin >> Products
  • Click on Custom Size Products3.png to add a custom size product.
  • Enter the product details such as – product name, internal title, keywords, URL, and define categories.
  • For the CUSTOM SIZE PRODUCTS, the Price Defining Method should be – Size Based Price (Dynamic Size)

  • Configure other details such as product type, user type, stock management, product descriptions, etc. These settings remain the same as standard product configuration.

Designer Options

As this is a custom size product, there will be no need to define product sizes.

All you have to do here is to set the product pages.

  • Enter page name, give a sort order, and save.
  • Similarly, add other pages and save the changes made.

Next, set the correct safe margin and cut margin for your custom size products.

Product Prices

Enter the product prices based on range. This is an area-based pricing method.

The price of a product is decided based on the following formula and steps:

Case 1 – If Area Lookup is Only Height x Width

  • Area = (Width) * (Height)
  • The system will run a lookup of the area from the defined sizes in this (Product Price) section.
  • Final Price = Area * Quantity (entered from the front end)

Case 2 – If Area Lookup is Only Height x Width x Quantity

  • Area = (Width) * (Height)
  • Lookup formula - (Width) * (Height) * (Quantity)
  • The system will run a lookup of the area from the defined sizes in this (Product Price) section.
  • Total Price = (Lookup formula) * (Price per unit square set for particular area range) * (Ordered Quantity)

  • Enter the prices by defining various size ranges.

Quantity Based Price

Click on the Quantity Based Price to add quantity based pricing for the sizes added in the previous screen.

If you have a configured quantity-wise price, then this price will be considered for calculation, and if the price is not configured then the system will take the area-wise configured price.

Use the size dropdown to add pricing for different quantity ranges for each size added previously.

Note – If you have configured quantity-wise price here then, this price will be considered for calculation and if the price is not configured here then the system will take the price configured area-wise.

Product Settings

There are several custom size product-related settings that can be configured for better functioning of the custom size products.

  • Area Lookup

    This defines how the product price lookup should be performed.

    Custom Size Products11.png

    Consider a scenario where the price configuration of custom size product is as follows –

    Custom Size Products12.png

    Ordered Area – 4*3 = 12

    • Only Area (Height X Width) – If the lookup is set as the only area, then the price will be as follows –
      • Area = Height * Width = 4*3 = 12
      • The system will run a lookup to find the range of 12.
      • Total Price = 12* Quantity = 12*5 = 60
    • The area with quantity (Height X Width X Quantity)
      • Area * Quantity = Height * Width * 5= 4*3 * 5 = 60
      • The system will run a lookup to find the range of 60.
      • Total Price = 60* Quantity = 60*5 = 300

    Depending upon your pricing model you can set the lookup.

  • Restrict Size
    • This will restrict customers from ordering a custom size product with a certain height and width configuration.
    • Custom Size Products13.png

    • If you enable the ‘Allow Custom width and height’ setting, then you can enter the maximum and minimum width/height. This will restrict the customer to enter height and width within the minimum and maximum range.
    • Leave the range fields blank if you don't want the customer to choose within a defined size range.
    • On entering a size greater than the defined range, customers will see an error in the following manner.

  • Unit Selection at front
    • While product configuration, you can define the measurement unit of a custom size product. But, if you want to make this unit selection flexible and to be available to the customers (at the front end), then enable this setting and select the measurement units.
    • Custom Size Products15.png

    • These units will be available at the front end in a dropdown and customers can select any desirable unit.
    • Once the unit is selected, all the conversions will be performed by the system and displayed accordingly.

  • Predefined Custom Size

    This section will allow you to add a few pre-defined sizes for these custom-size products.

    These sizes will be listed in a dropdown at the front store. However, customers can choose to enter the custom size and enter their desired sizes.
