Is it possible to add several the same product times to the cart with a different name? I did with different price, but I have not managed to do it with a different name.

I used an observer "sales_quote_item_set_product" but sets the same name when there are several products in cart.

The product is added by programming with "checkout_cart_product_add_after" event, using:

$quote = Mage::getSingleton('checkout/session')->getQuote();
$quoteItem = $quoteItem = Mage::getModel('sales/quote_item');
$quoteItem->setName('Custom Name')//I need this, but does not work

If I print the value of $quoteItem with var_dump() I see if the name was changed, but in the cart appears with the original name.

Another option was to use $product_model->setName() before $quoteItem->setProduct($product_model) but in the cart appears also with the original name.

Take a look at Magento change product name adding to cart

Use event sales_quote_item_set_product

class Mynamespace_Samples_Model_Observer
    public function salesQuoteItemSetProduct(Varien_Event_Observer $observer)
        /* @var $item Mage_Sales_Model_Quote_Item */
        $item = $observer->getQuoteItem();

        //only change the item you want by product id
        if($item->getProductId() == xyz){
            $item->setName('Ians custom product name');

        return $this;
  • It update name of all the products in the cart and not the last product we added. Sep 14, 2016 at 14:16
