I've build a module for changing the price while adding the product to the cart. This with the observer checkout_cart_product_add_after

Price is changing right, but I also want to change the weight for right calculation of shipping costs.

My Code:


public function updatePrice(Varien_Event_Observer $observer) {
    $item = $observer->getQuoteItem();
    $item = ( $item->getParentItem() ? $item->getParentItem() : $item );

  • I can see you are setting weight already, is it not working? – Adarsh Khatri Jul 14 '16 at 0:03

Use event sales_quote_item_set_product. I tried your code and it worked perfectly fine then.

  • How are you changing the weight on product view? Its not possible until the quote is generated for the customer. – Twinkal Jul 18 '16 at 12:41
