Catproduct is the only tool for adding multiple products to cart directly from VirtueMart product page.
Catproduct primary display child products, but it can be use to display any product!
You can use it to display different variants of product, tools for main product, accessories for product, related products, or anything you imagine! You can also use Catproduct for displaying kits!
Default layout is a table of products on main product page with quantity boxes on a side and one Add-to-cart button. But Catproduct support custom layouts so you can have different layouts for different products!
You can select how Catproduct will sort products. You can sort them by id, sku, name, weight, length, width, height and price.
You can attach other products to the table with child product. That means you can put one independent product to many parents. Simple put product ids in plug-in configuration and products will be shown in parent product layout. You can also set custom title for attached products like “Accessories”. Look example in J2.5 DEMO.
With Catproduct you can set, what is the minimal and maximal order quantity. You can also set quantity in box and only multipled value of that quqntity can be ordered!
Catproduct support dynamic price update. This is used for quantity discount. This makes calculation a little slower so it can be turn off if not used.
