One plugin, two pocket calculator modes for eg area calculation

With this one plugin you can two different calculator modesconfigure : quantity based  and custom . For information on setting up products for each mode, see the Documentation . The quantity-based calculators is ideal for selling products with a fixed size, e.g. The calculator will show up in the frontend and prompt the customer to input longitude and latitude (for example). You specify the label and the units to use, and your customer can easily purchase the minimum number of boxes based on the area of ​​their floor and the coverage of each box:

Selling a box of tiles using the quantity calculator

As shown in the sample image, the plugin can be configured to display the price “per unit”, as is common with tile sales. The price of the product (e.g., a box of tiles) is divided by the configured size of the product (e.g., the square foot coverage of the box of tiles) to determine the unit price. Of course it can any of the calculators can be used : Measures, area, volume or weight, with any combination of units and custom labels.



On the other hand, you can custom calculator mode Sell ​​products that are available per unit and in custom sizes. This calculator is ideal for selling products that are made to order: for example, fabric sold by the foot, the length of which is specified by the customer. If the 'Calculated price' option is activated, the price is defined as the price per unit and the amount entered by the customer.

On the product page, the customer can specify the length they want and see the final price based on their dimensions:

Price calculation inventory support (stock level)

In the latest version of the plugin, inventory can now be managed “by units” for custom sized products (custom mode). When this option is enabled, you can track product inventory in the same units that it is sold. For example, if your product is footwear, you can configure your product inventory in terms of available footwear. So if a customer orders two 10ft lengths, a total of 20ft will be deducted from your product inventory.
