I want track quote items color and brand in our checkout process. Regarding this answer I should do this in config.xml:

                    <color />

And this in my checkout process:

    foreach($cartItems as $_quoteItem) {
        echo $_quoteItem->getProduct()->getAttributeText('color');

But this is not working - result is nothing.


Your config.xml file is correct, however, retrieving the attribute value for configurable or simple products differs. If you have configurable product in cart, but the attributes are set for its simple products, consider this solution:

foreach ($cartItems as $_quoteItem) {
    $simpleProductOption = $_quoteItem->getOptionByCode('simple_product');
    $color = $simpleProductOption->getProduct()->getAttributeText('color');

Sorry, I do not have enough reputation to comment/ask whether you need this done for configurable products or simple products, or any other products, but I hope this helps you!

  • We are using both. The configurable products are the containers for our simple products. But I am really new to this stuff - could be that I mixed up something. – Jurik May 10 '16 at 12:18
