Associations

What are associations?

Associations are used for the translation of the products in case your Joomla! website and your shop use multilingual feature.

What is the difference between Attributes, Specifications and Parameters?

Product attributes are suitable for adding product variations like size (L, XL, XXL) or color (Blue, Yellow, Red) to products which can change the price when selected. Specifications are suitable for adding additional info to products that products can be compared with each other. Specifications don't have any effect on product price (this is different to attributes).

Attributes and specifications can be used for filtering products, see Phoca Stock Photos website to see the filtering feature demo. As filtering values, the following items can be used:

  • Standard title - title of attribute or specification is displayed in filter box
  • Image - image instead of title is displayed in filter box
  • Color - color instead of title is displayed in filter box

Phoca Cart Filter - ColorsPhoca Cart Filter - Colors instead of titles

Parameters in fact complement attributes and specifications and are a simple alternative to filter products. You can see example of how parameters work on this website: Joomla! Templates Directory

When you edit product, you can even set up following items:

  • Customer Group - Prices: you can set different price values for different customer groups
  • Product Price History - you can store price values in time so customers can get information on price development over time
  • Additional images - additional images are displayed in product view
  • Advanced Stock Options - see: Phoca Cart - Stock Management
  • Customer Group - Points Received you can set number of points the buyer receives for purchasing product differently for each customer group.

Shipping Methods

When shipping methods are used in the shop, there can be set different rules to enable or disable them in checkout for each customer:

  • Amount Rule - based on amount of all ordered products
  • Quantity Rule - based on number of ordered products
  • Zone Rule - based on selected zone
  • Country Rule - based on selected country
  • Region Rule - based on selected region
  • Weight Rule - based on weight of all ordered products
  • Size Rule - based on size of each product

These rules can be extended by:

  • Access - selected users groups that have access to shipping method
  • Customer Group - selected customer groups that have access to shipping method

Each shipping method can be designed for special occasions and its behavior can be set by shipping method plugin. See shipping method plugins here:
