1. Overview

Along with Magento 1 version, Configurable Product Grid Table View for Magento 2 extension supports better shopping experience by allowing customers to add multiple products to cart at once.

This module displays all children products of the configurable product in a very simple table with fields such as product availability, price, tier price, quantity, and subtotal.

Especially, a price range of the configurable product is also shown on the category page, which is determined by the lowest and highest one among prices of children products.


2. How Does It Work?

Go to Stores ⇒ Configuration ⇒ BSS Commerce ⇒ Configurable Grid Table View.

Enable the extension

In Enabled: Choose Yes to enable the module or choose No to disable it.

2.1. Set up the grid table view

First off, we provide advanced features to improve the display of the Configurable Grid Table View.

Optimize the display of the grid table view

In Display Stock Availability: choose Yes to display stock availability in the grid table as "In Stock" or "Out of Stock." Otherwise, choose No.

In Display Stock Number: Choose Yes to show the number of products available instead of "In Stock." Otherwise, choose No.

In Display Out of Stock Products: choose Yes to show "Out-of-stock" products in the table, too. Otherwise, choose No.

In Display Product SKU: choose Yes to show SKU of child products. Otherwise, choose No.

In Subtotal: Choose Yes to show the subtotal column in the table. Otherwise, choose No.

In Show Unit Price:

  • Choose Yes to display the column of Unit price in the grid table
  • Choose No to hide the Unit Price column
  • Choose Only Different Price to show the price of child products having different prices. If all child products of a configurable product have the same price, the unit price column will be hidden.

In Show Detailed Total: Choose Yes to display the total quantity and total price at the bottom of the table in detail.

Here is an example of the Configurable Grid Table View product page.

2.2. Set up advanced tier prices

Enable advanced tier price for the configurable product

When it comes to tier price, you can:

  • Choose Yes to enable Advanced Tier Price on the configurable product pages.
  • Choose Yes to enable Table Tier Price so that customers get information about tier prices at a glance.
  • Choose Yes to enable Tooltip Tier Price. A note will be shown in the tooltip when customers hover on a specific child product.

*NOTE: In order to use Advanced Tier Price, you need to set the same tier price rules for the products that you wish to group for advanced tier price, disregarding whether these products have the same price. 

For example, you have two products A and B (A & B are two children products of a shirt) that you want to group for advanced tier price. A has a price of $5 and B is $10. You set their discounts similarly: Buy 5 get 5% OFF, Buy 10 get 10% OFF. Now if your customer buys a Total of 10: 3 products A and 7 products B, the discount they get is: 5x3x10% + 10x7x10% = $8.5. Therefore, the total amount they have to pay is 5x3 + 10x7 - 8.5 = $76.5.
