On your attribute from backend, you have to set the decimal backend type like the attribute "weight". It will show ranges automatically.

  • Hi, Thanks for reply. I am not getting about "decimal backend type". I am not seeing the field where i can set decimal backend type in my attribute. I have also match same as "weight" attribute. Please advise, from where i can set "decimal backend type" in my "test" attribute. Please help.

  • Look at Backend / Catalog / Attributes / Manages Attributes. Click on your attribute, and you will find the field : "Input Validation for Store Owner"

  • Sorry, I do a mistake. I just checked. Look at your attribute in the table "eav_attribute" from database. Change backend_type to "decimal" and frontend_input to "text". It will show ranges. Then reindex, flush cache, set yours values in yours products. It work for me.
