Hi all i am an expirenced programmer but new to shopify liquid.
Is it possible to change prices withn in shopify product page dynamically?
My products require very advance customization, and we need to update the prices in a dynamic way.
I know how to add custom field, but need to update the prices with out resorting to variants (which are very limiting).
Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
First you need to understand how the checkout and cart works.
Everything added to the cart is a variant.
So if you have a product - and some form of customisation increases the price - you are doing one of these things:
Ive explored using variants and options. But there are limites. Shopify only allows 3 options and 100 variants. some of my products have 5 options~ Is there a work around for this?
Using the API to add products sounds messy, becuase we would be adding all sorts of products into the catalogue, and that could cause problems with other apps. Am i wrong?
thanks for your help.
Have you found work around this? other then creating custom app?
I'm facing a similar problem than OP, and found your comment very informative, but it seems old.
Do you know if we have some new features since 2017 that allow a new scenario in your list?
In my case I will have products will add to the final price, and also options only to customize the product but that will not modify the price.
I discarted the variants options because of the limit, the customizations could have more than 10 options in some cases, some of them adding to the price.
Thank you for your time.
