-- url of the page with the problem -- : animaloutfitters.nz
-- HikaShop version -- : 3.1.1
-- Joomla version -- : 3.7.4
-- PHP version -- : 7.1
-- Browser(s) name and version -- : Chrome

Hi. is it possible on the product page to display "Price(s) from" (rather than simply "Price") for products where there are multiple variants with different prices.

I don't want to prefix all prices in this way as some of my products have only a single variant where the price is always the same. So I guess I'm trying to understand if Hikashop applies a different class to products with multiple variants so I can apply a language override / separate css styling etc.

Can you please advise if this possible. Thanks

Hi,

On the product page, the price displayed is the price of the current variant. So when you select the variant you want, you'll see the price update for the one of the selected variant.
It would be weird to have a "price from" text there even though it's the exact price the customer will pay when clicking on the add to cart button.
Now if you want to add that, you can edit the file "listing_price" of the view "product" via the menu Display>Views. But as you said, it won't be simple as if you just add your text at the top of the file, it will add it for all the products. So you will have to add some kind of condition for the display of your text based on your needs.

Hi Nicolas. It's actually one level up from the product page - at the "hikashop_product_image" level. i.e. before you see the variants. This is because it can be misleading for a customer to click on a product at this level only to find the prices increase with size. This page is an example:
www.animaloutfitters.nz/outerwear/fleece-dog-robes

When you say: "So you will have to add some kind of condition for the display of your text based on your needs" is this easy to do or will it require PHP knowledge?

Thanks

Hi,

Then you're talking about the products listing page, not the product page.
That makes indeed more sense to add it there.
You'll still need to edit the file "listing_price" of the view "product" via the menu Display>Views for that.
The code should be quite simple but even simple code requires PHP knowledge.
If you want to add that text only for products with variants you can easily do it like that:

<?php if($this->row->has_options) echo 'Price from '; ?>
because that condition is already precalculated by HikaShop for other needs.
However, if you want to add that text only for products with more than one variant, then you'll have to run some MySQL query to count the variants of the current product. So it will require a developer to work on that for you. It's not complex for a developer but still it requires proper development.
You can potentially contact our partners for such customization job:

Hi,

Thank you for this very interesting solution.

If you want to add that text only for products with variants you can easily do it like that:

<?php if($this->row->has_options) echo 'Price from '; ?>
because that condition is already precalculated by HikaShop for other needs.


But if the variants have all the same price, the 'Price from' become useless.

For other needs, do you have another precalculated condition to indicate that the product is sold at multiple prices to replace your 'has_options'? It would be more efficient.

Hi,

There is no such precalculated data.
When you reach the listing views, the prices have already been calculated and there is no easy way to know from there if the price you're displaying comes from a main product or a variant and if there are other prices in other variants, etc.
That would require running MySQL queries.

Thank you Nicolas,

Too bad because when you only display the lowest price, the buyer may feel betrayed. Maybe we will find this feature in a future release! ;-)

Hi Nicolas
Is there already an update/new feature for this problem? I also want to show "price from" on product listing page – but only, if there are different prices for the variants.

Thanks,
Alexandra

Hi,

While there is no easy option for that, we did add some improvements in the code.
You now have the variable $this->row->all_prices which contains the list of all the prices loaded from the database before being filtered out.
So you don't need anymore to run a MySQL query to know whether the product has several prices or not.
You can directly add such code in the listing_price view file:

<?php
if(count($this->row->all_prices) > 1) {
 echo "price from ";
}
?>
