My requirement is adding the same simple products in 2 different configurable products with the prices of the simple products to be different. For e.g Simple product A added inside Configurable product B has price $20. Whereas, The same Simple product A added inside Configurable product C has price $30. How can i achieve this in magento 2. I want to also know that, when editing the configurations for simple products inside configurable products here https://prnt.sc/t1we8i When i select the option "Apply unique prices by attrbute" https://prnt.sc/t1wev8 and give different price for the product. It not only changes the price here https://prnt.sc/t1wfx8 but it also changes the price of the default simple product. https://prnt.sc/t1whli I don't want that. Can anybody help me in this. If my requirements are not cleared, please comment, i will again explain.

  • This used to be possible in Magento 1 but in Magento 2 configurable products are just containers for simple products with no pricing option. You should try and create a simple product for each saleable product you have and use product attributes for the varations.

  • You can duplicate the simple products in Magento 2 and make the changes to price or attributes and the manually add them to the configurable.

  • I would look at using the built in import system to import the new simple products. There is no simple way around this, configurable products in Magento 2 are completely different to Magento 1. Use this opportunity to redesign and improve your product presentation.

1 Answer 1


Basically, you can config this way in Magento 1 but not in Magento 2. Therefore, you should duplicate A and add it into C.
