How to Calculate Prices of Variable Sized Products in PrestaShop? – User Guide

One of our client David Milosz who sells liquids, canvas, banners, fabric, blinds, barrels etc on his PrestaShop store came to us with the problem that his clients call him to know the prices of products. It was quite a big headache for him to deal with them all.

This was a real problem since there is no direct way to show prices of variable sized products as they vary with changing dimensions heights, length, width etc. He was hiding the price of product and adds to cart button using call for price plugin and in place he was displaying a custom text “Call for Price at 1234”. Whenever users want to buy anything, they call to him to know the prices for different sizes of the products.
