I'm new to Magento 2, and understand this is a change from Magento 1.

Example: I have a T-Shirt as a configurable product with colour options as Simple Products. These Simple Products all require the same price.

  • If I want to update the price of the configurable product (and thus the Simple Product variations) how do I easily do this?
  • Same question with regards to applying a special price
  • How would I apply tiered pricing to all Simple Product variants?

As far as I can see, this is only possible via the product catalogue screen: find a way to select all the Simple Product variations of that configurable product then apply a bulk action to change the price / special price. This seems very long-winded and tricky - say I had 50 variations on a product all with different SKUs: even filtering then selecting all of those in the Product Catalogue would be a task.

Therefore, I'm assuming I'm missing something! I'd guess a huge portion (majority?) of users who create configurable products will want to apply a single price to all variations (Simple Products). Simple Products should have the option of inheriting the price from their configurable product.

I believe Magento 1 handled this differently and did use the configurable product's price until explicitly overridden via a Simple Product variation. This seems far more sensible to me... though happy to be educated here!

Thanks.
