How To Display Price In Square Meters (m2) , But Sell By Full Boxes?

Hello community,

 

We are a tile store that want to move from Magento to Shopify.

But we see a problem, Shopify use pricing per piece.

 

In the tile world, the industry standard is to show the prices of tiles in square meters (m2) , but most retailers only sell tiles by full boxes, which contain a differing amount of square meters/feet (e.g 1 box = 1.43 square meters). 

 

This means that the "true" price of 1 product is actually the price of the box.
Is there a way I could show the prices of my tiles in square meters, but sell them by full boxes?

Well, we checked your app before. But we dont want to mess up the shop experience for our customer where in your app they need to add height and width to get an cost.

 

Often the customer already knows how many square meters they need to buy.

In Custom PRice Calculator you can actually have both. You can ask the customer in Question 1 if they want to insert the total SQF or insert dims manually for a calculation. Based on their answer you can display the different options. If you want, we are happy to set up a call with you to show you how to achieve this with our app!

Hi,

Yes, this is doable, but I think it'll require some small theme code modification.

This modification will make it so that instead of displaying the price per piece, the necessary calculation/conversion is made on the back-end to display the price per square meters, as shownn in your Magento product page.

I could be wrong, but I don't think this could be done anywhere in most theme settings.

I think you are correct, but the issue is also that we have products that we sell by piece too.

So there need to be different kind of pricing.

 

Price/pcs

Price/m2

You can make multiple product pages, and use them according to each kind of pricing.
