When you're importing products into Drupal Commerce, you have to import prices as "minor units". In the US this would mean "cents", not "dollars and cents". So Commerce Feeds wants "11000" instead of $110.00. This screeencast uses the excellent Feeds Tamper to transform 110.00 into 11000 before it gets imported.
This screencast expands the simple import we did before using Commerce Feeds. Here we add an attribute to the product, and then import multivalued product reference fields on the node. The manual page that goes with this is http://www.drupalcommerce.org/user-guide/importing-products-using-feeds . If you haven't already you may want to watch the introductory importing screencast at http://vimeo.com/22731881 .
In Drupal Commerce, the "product" and "product display node" are different things. So to use views of nodes, we have to use a relationship, which is new to some. This screencast shows how to use a Views Relationship to let a view of nodes access information that's on the product.
Getting your products into Drupal Commerce is a key part of building your site. Luckily, the Commerce Feeds module provides a great way to do this. In this screencast we look at how to take a CSV file and turn it into products and product reference nodes.
You can use the same feed yourself to populate a dev store:
In this video I demonstrate how to do a complex pricing rule - where you use a taxonomy term applied to the product (and accessible from the line item) to determine whether a discount should be applied. The manual page that goes with this video is drupalcommerce.org/node/461
Here we build on the earlier screencast to show a 10% discount that is only applicable for one weekend. This just means adding two conditions to our product pricing rule. The manual page that goes with this video is drupalcommerce.org/node/461
Discounts in Drupal Commerce
- Create a discount using a rule
- Create a weekend (date-based) sale discount using a rule
- Create a tag-based weekend sale discount using a rule
An example of a simple discount: You want to take 10% off everything in your store until further notice.
Drupal Commerce *really* knows how to do conditional sales tax (and VAT). Using the nearly unlimited Rules engine, you can configure various kinds of local sales tax based on the address of the purchaser. This video shows how it's done.
We're expanding on the last screencast that show simple taxes. We're going to go ahead and setup taxes like we just did, but this time we are going to add a conditional Rules application to the checkout.
