Thanks for a great plugin! However, I can’t seem to find much info about how to actually use it. I purchased the PRO version in order to use the measure input function.
I have products that need to be price based on measurements within a small, medium, and large category (e.g. small up to 50cm, medium from 50.5cm up to 63cm, and so on…. based on what the customer writes in a text field. Is this possible and if so, can you please provide more info on how I do this?

Thanks for using PPOM.
How PPOM Measure input works
Let’s say if you want to sell wall papers and charge customer based on per/feet ($5/feet).
- create a product with price $5.00
- create measure input with your labels like Length in Feet
- Attach this PPOM meta with product
That’s all. Now when customer will enter value in feet in measure like 20 feet it will be multiplied with product price = $5×20 = $100.00
And if you want to calculate square feet, just create another measure input in same PPOM meta group.
I hope it will help you.January 30, 2019 at 2:18 am #10516
Thanks for your reply. I must have totally missed it.
As mentioned above, I need a product to have 3 different price groups depending on length in cm (small, medium, large). Now this is where I get confused since the product price starts at $78 (0-50cm), and the next size (50.5cm – 63cm) is only $8 more. How do I get around with this?
Also, I’m having problems with the colour palette. On hover it’s supposed to show the colour code and name (e.g. #ffffff – White), but nothing shows up. What am I doing wrong?

Sorry – one more thing. On the cart page the option names are displayed with a linebreak after each option. For example:
This is taking up too much space and doesn’t look good. How do I remove the linebreak and let the option name and option next to each other?

you need to use price matrix then, not the measure input, we have added video on our PPOM product page about price matrix.
And about the layout of item meta in cart is deal with theme css. You need to modify your theme css to make them in one line.January 30, 2019 at 10:05 pm #10541
Thanks, I will have a look.
Can you please give me some guidance on how to do that? My theme shows everything else in one line in cart, like size and colour, just not whatever is through this plugin.
Did you have a solution to the colour palette hover issue?

So I had a look at the video you mentioned (after struggling to find it!). It was not helpful and does not apply to what I’ve tried to explain. It makes no sense to increase the quantity of a product when the price must be based on size/cm typed in a text field. Can you please be more specific?
Still waiting for a reply regarding the colour palette issue. Thanks!February 2, 2019 at 5:14 pm #10559

Linea, Sorry I didn’t say that I will not provide your support, your question is not related to this topic and it will not other users, I requested you to create new topic and paste your question in it.
I am replying here by the way:
for color palattes we have fixed popup issue with new script and it will be released in version 16.6
If price matrix is not you looking for you can make three options using select input with range and price against it like:
1-5 cm – $4
5.5-10 cm – $5
and so on.
it will be added to product base price without increasing the quantity.June 7, 2019 at 7:34 pm #12491
Hi, I use measure tool, the user inputs quantity, this gets multiplied by the unit price, but I need to add another fixed cost based on radio button selection, what happens is that the extra fixed cost is added to item unit price and then multiplied by the user input in measure tool.
I need to: qty_in_measure_tool X unit_price + fixed_cost_if_radio_button_selected
Thanks in advanceJune 9, 2019 at 1:31 pm #12502
Sorry, it’s not measure input suppose to work. it only multiple quantity/units with base price.June 9, 2019 at 2:49 pm #12510
yes, but it multiplies by (base price + any other add on price) is there a way around this ? I purchased the PRO version for this feature specifically, and I could find no documentation, only this forum to describe how to use.June 10, 2019 at 2:18 pm #12528
