How do I access the price in one of the simple products? The following is the beginning of the array I want to access from my var_dump($_product->debug()); (stackoverflow wouldn't let me post the whole thing). I am working on the issue related to this post: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/16703427/magento-retrieve-simple-product-price-for-configurable-product

  array(9) {
    ["0 (Mage_Catalog_Model_Product)"]=>
    array(33) {
      string(2) "69"
      string(1) "4"
      string(2) "10"
      string(6) "simple"
      string(13) "1001-blu-ven1"
      string(1) "0"
      string(1) "0"
      string(19) "2013-04-02 22:12:27"
      string(19) "2013-04-02 23:54:41"
      string(2) "78"
      string(1) "6"
      string(1) "5"
      string(14) "test_1 blue v1"
      string(14) "test-1-blue-v1"
      string(1) "2"
      string(1) "4"
      string(12) "no_selection"
      string(12) "no_selection"
      string(12) "no_selection"
      string(10) "container2"
      string(19) "test-1-blue-v1.html"
      string(6) "0.0000"
      string(6) "1.0000"
      string(1) "1"
      string(1) "1"
      string(1) "1"
      string(1) "0"
      string(1) "0"
      string(19) "test_1 blue v1 desc"
      string(19) "test_1 blue v1 desc"

    So $_product->getPrice() and $_product->getFinalPrice() are not doing what you need?

In your getData output above, it's there, with a $1.00 price:

      string(6) "1.0000"

To access, use $_product->getPrice()


While I don't quite follow, hopefully this helps - to get all simples of a configurable parent product, use the following:

$childProducts = Mage::getModel('catalog/product_type_configurable')
foreach($childProducts as $child) {

In your case it looks as though $_product may contain this simple collection, in which case it may be poorly named. If that is that case, I suggest iterating with a foreach:

foreach($_product as $_child){
  • No that gets the configurable product price. I need the associated simple product price. :) May 23, 2013 at 15:06
  • Are you sure? Your getData shows ["type_id"]=> string(6) "simple"

  • I only posted a fraction of the data that was dumped. Stackexchange won't let me post the whole thing LOL. May 23, 2013 at 15:10
  • That top part "["_cache_instance_products"]=>" is where it starts to dump the simple products that are associated with the config May 23, 2013 at 15:10
  • See my edit - I don't know if we're on the right track. If this doesn't help, perhaps you can paste your debug into a pastie.
