Buy The Measurement alternative for pricing by square metres/feet

Hi,

We are a harwood flooring manufacturer and we think about selling our floors online with a Shopify platform.

I need to find an application to calculate in square feet (width x length).  

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.

Thank you

Hey there, 

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify :)

I took a look in our App Store, and I was able to find an app that might help here! It looks like the app Unit Pricing might be the right fit for you! It claims it can let you sell products based on quantity and square feet looks like it's one of the options! Check it out! 

If you have questions about the app and how it works, your best bet will be to reach out to the app developers directly. You can see their contact information on the app's page directly. 

Alternatively, you can also look into getting an app custom created for you. There are third party experts you can reach out to that could build an app to your specific needs! To check out a list of expert developers, check out this page

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread :) 

Have a great one,
Ann

Hello all,

I am running into the same problem here. I have a client who uses this Buy the Measurement app on 4 of his stores and it's really a critical feature of his store. We are doing this sort of thing with it:

The Unit Pricing app mentioned above seems to no longer exist.

I found one possible option - an app called Calculator Builder but not sure if it will do it yet.

Does anyone have any good alternatives?

@Thomas_Holmes Hi - we're looking for a similar solution for a rug size price calculator. I don't suppose you've found anything suitable? Thanks, Tim

Hi Tim,
No, I'm afraid we haven't found a suitable replacement for what we needed.

 

The calculator app that I mentioned can make a calculation and push that through to the quantity field in Shopify. For the case I was looking at though, we also wanted the actual height, width and quantity fields that the visitor fills out in the calculator, and not just the end square meterage. That app does not send those fields through to the cart and checkout though so it wasn't suitable. But if you just need the end result, it could work for you.

 

In the end, we already had the Bold Buy the Measurement app installed so we just continued with that for the moment. Even though Bold have stopped supporting it and will no longer develop it, it still works for the time-being.

 

Most likely we will get a developer to do a custom development for this at some stage in the not-too-distant future.

 

Please do let me know if you find any suitable alternatives though! All the best with your store...

Thomas

Hi muzimalik,

 

Well done for creating this app! Unfortunately, it's too late for us now. We may consider it for our 4 stores when we update the theme. I'm not sure when that will be though.

 

$30 a month is expensive! Especially if it's for 4 stores...

I'm interested in using this application to sell tiles.

I want to quote prices per square meter but don't want to sell less than full boxes. Does the app do this calculation? 

The reason for this is stock control where we will count stock in boxes as apposed to sqm.

Stocky is the inventory control app we will use. Can I expect conflicts?

Also the bulk of our sales will happen through Shopify POS.

 

Thank you

Hi my App is more user-friendly and deals with a variety of measurements units like

Sell Products Based on Different Measurement

By adding the measurement price calculator app to your store you can sell variable-sized products based on length, weight, area, volume, and even boxes. For example,

  • Length – sell products such as ropes, fabrics, cables, and pipes in meter, yard, foot, inch, etc.
  • Weight – sell products such as sugar, rice, meat, and grains in gram, milligram, kg, ton, Oz, lb, etc.
  • Area – sell products such as floor tiles, carpets, or estate in Sq mm, sq meter, sq km, sq ft, sq yrd, etc.
  • Volume – sell products such as milk, diesel, or compost in milliliters, liters, gallons, cubic meters, etc.
  • Box - sell products in boxes such as tiles and other similar items.a5b98fac1741b63b457e8715a5da23c9

Be warned, I just tried the trial and there is a dropdown to select your product from ... it seems to have a max limit, so could not add calculator to 50+ products. $30 per month and they can't even check that things like that work, terrible. No excuse for that, that is what beta testing is for.
