    How to provide the option to order a sample of a product via Tea Commerce

    I'm creating a site in TC for a company that sells wallpaper (about 4 thousand products now imported) and the client wants to be able to sell samples of the product. These will have a single price, and I'm wondering the best method to approach this in Tea Commerce?

    I think if I add variants to all the products programatically and set the price of the variants at the same time then the variant would be the sample.

    Is this the best way to provide the ability to order samples of products in TC?

    TIA t

    Hey Tom,

    If they are ALWAYS the same price and there is no stock managements for the samples, you could in theory have a single Sample product and on the order line for that sample you record which product it is a sample of. This would mean you only have one product to manage for the samples.

    If you want to allow multiple sample orders you can use the "sampleOf" property as a product uniqueness property and therefore each unique sample request will create a unique order line so can be managed in the cart independantly.

    This would be a simpler approach, but as I say it depends on the price / stock management really.
