Hi,

We sell material in square metres / feet. We have a price per foot. I'm new to Shopify but it looks like there USED to be a perfect app for this requirement called Buy the Measurement by Bold Commerce (https://boldcommerce.com/apps/buy-the-measurement-shopify-app)

I can't quite understand why but they've discontinued the app. I emailed the developer as I assumed the features had been migrated to one of their other apps. I didn't quite follow their reply but it sounds like they binned off the app.

Does anyone know of a similar app? I've been looking for the last few nights but haven't found anything even remotely similar.

You can do this far easier and far more permanant.

Scripting + template modifications + hooking existing inventory so you only sell full boxes. You'll have to add sq ft / sq meters as additional data to each product, but this assumes no one wants to sell partial boxes anyway.

Happy to discuss with anyone who has this need.

Hey Tom,

 

Thanks for this. We cut and finish fabric material to very specific sizes (we deliver a finished product rather than raw materials — or mosaic in your example — to complete a job, if that makes sense). So if a customer wants something that measures 2' 6" x 5' 6", or 762mm x 1,676mm then that's what we'll supply. When you say full boxes, I guess 1mm x 1mm could be a "box" or unit in your example? Could the customer switch between millimetres, centimetres, inches and feet etc using your solution? 

 

Thanks!

Sorry Tinselworm, I missed the post about switching between units.

In your case a unit could be a "box" so long as your pricing for a unit of measurement remains consistant. The box requirement is for stores that store full-boxes of material that may not fit into easily divisible square feet or square meters.

 

E.g. 26.56 sq ft per box.

Good luck with your app but $29.99/month is very expensive.
