    Hi there!

    Unfortunately our pricing structure in our e-commerce plugin is limited to single variations at the moment. We are working on creating a more robust version of product selection and variations though :slight_smile:

    We don't provide themed themes, hopefully that makes more sense than it sounds like it does. :slight_smile: But we do provide a few that are product and service centric:

    I ran into a similar situation to this a little over a year ago when dealing with a small embroidery shop that made those couture clothes that are all the rage with some kids today. Our eventual solution for them was to use Cart66 in conjunction with Gravity Forms.

    You may not need Cart66, but Gravity Forms allowed us to create highly customized and configurable order forms similar to what you have in your demo link you posted.

    However, don't ask for our demonstration because by the time we got all the research completed and figured out all the tools needed to do the job - and then gave them a price, we discovered that they were having trouble paying their day to day operations bills. We were there for a meeting about their new website (which we had quoted at about $18,000) and a bill collector showed up with a bounced check for under $200. We immediately stopped work on the website and moved on to the next one.

    However, there are several videos on YouTube about using just that and I think either Cart66 or Gravity Forms has some on their website about integrating the two. Regardless, there's a lot of power with Gravity Forms.

    Hope this is helpful and that you can get something worked out for this need.

    KimberlyL , can you help ...what do you mean by single varition ...can see a screen shot....is single variation mean if a product has say different prices for diffrent quantities

    then MP can only show just one size and juts one price....

    I have gone through the site and am started getting worried...it seems wpecommerce has more functionality that MP...so my question is since wp eccormece is a plug in..can i use it with the MP theme so i can get multiple variations....
    and the other features that are not in MP presently

    about the price list ...i have attached a screenshot of what i meant by the Pricelist
    the tabular clickable price list ( like an excel spreadsheet but clickable)

    this makes it very easy for visistors to see our price range in one go and they can click on the price to but instantly with having go through varitions selection
    ...is there a way or plug in that can do that

    Goodday Commission.

    Have you taken a look at Cart66? You can check it out here (http://cart66.com/). They have a free version (Cart66Lite) that may do all you want, or you can get their paid version for $89 for one website and it should do what you want.

    It has the multiple variations like Kimberly was talking about and if you want to integrate it with Gravity Forms, you can make some really slick looking order sheets with those variations and the various forms and fields. Plus, use the table plugin I was talking about earlier and you can have the table function that you were talking about and then you can click on one of the cells of the table and take the visitor directly to that option and give them even more choices.

    Unless I've completely missed what you are trying to do here, I am just "pig-headed" enough to think it might work for you.

    Let me know if you give it a try or just tell me to drop it and I'll not mention it again. BTW, I have no ties to Cart66, Gravity Forms, or anything that I've mentioned here. Just some experience working with each of them - and enough to think that this could apply to your situation.

    to be frank ...with all the hype on your site about the MP plugin...i cant believe that there is no multi variation...i mean this is 2012...how can a shopping cart just have one variation....even woocommerce that just came out recently has multiple variations ,....i really feel ripped off....
    do you have a refund policy or thrown my money away....let me know...yeah your site says there is a money back gaurantee...lets see....
