How to sell products by length, area or volume online

May 7th, 2013
Custom size products

This question shouldn't bother you if you sell standard size products such as electronics, clothes, books, etc. These products are usually sold per piece, and it's not a problem to add a size option if necessary.

But if you sell size specific products tailored to the client's needs, this question can be vital. For example, you sell fabrics or custom doors, how to let your customer buy these items of a necessary width and length? There are several ways to do it by default shopping cart methods. But they are usually not perfect. That is why Alt-team has arranged the Product price calculator e-commerce software that allows you to sell custom size products by width, length, height, area or volume easy.
