Hi Guys

Anyone know if MarketPress can handle large amounts of variations. We have a site using wp-ecommerce selling contact lenses with loads of variations and as soon as we try and add more variations it crashes the site. We need to add more variations but can't so was wondering if anyone has experience using lots of variations with MarketPress.

    Hi Tony,

    That doesn't sound right. Could you let us know roughly how many variations you currently have?

    Also, is it possible this has something to do with characters in the variations? Could you try adding a simple one-word variation in that case, something like 'red' or 'blue'?

    Hi David

    There are:
    1.pack sizes - 6 variations
    2.power range - 77 variations
    3.eye - left and right 113 variations

    And we nee to add 4 - 6 more variations.

    They are all figures and pricing.

    I spoke to Instinct and they admit to having a problem with large variations and hence looking around.
