I want To set auto pricing configurable(Parent) Products At backend Parent Price should be come lowest price from simple(child)Products. except $0 price product.


Use this to show the lowest price simple price on the front end:


You can then run a script to update configurable prices from lowest price simple with this:

require '/fullpath/httpdocs/app/Mage.php';
$collectionConfigurable = Mage::getResourceModel('catalog/product_collection')->addAttributeToFilter('type_id', array('eq' => 'configurable'));
foreach ($collectionConfigurable as $_configurableproduct) {    
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($_configurableproduct->getId());
$original_price = $product->getData('price');
$new_price = $product->getPrice();
if ($original_price != $new_price){
echo "\n\n" . $product->getName() . ' updated price from: ' . $original_price . ' to: ' . $new_price;

  • Create a Cron to run this script. this will be done on your server outside of Magento. Or you can put the file path in your browser to run if you have the correct permissions Mar 7 '17 at 14:50
