Just wondering if someone could help me out.

I'm wondering what the best way of offering installation of products is.

I thought of two ways: Making a configurable product with installation as an option (very time consuming to set up and you can't track sales of "installation") or doing it as a grouped product (also time consuming and cumbersome but can track sales).

Is there a better way? I couldn't find any extensions out there.

I would recommend to create product with "downloadable product" type as it comes with an option to upload your installation or software securely.

Hope it helps!

  • Thanks for your reply. Sorry I forgot to add that it is optional, but the products need PHYSICAL installation, not virtual.

  • Then I would go for "simple product" with custom options! Dec 5, 2014 at 10:00
