I am learning to use Magento to assemble configurable products. I have noticed that if I have different prices for each Simple Product, when I assemble the Configurable Product, the prices I used in the Simple products don't seem to update in the front end when I select them from the drop-down menu I created to cater for them. Only the same single price I used in the configurable price panel shows no matter which variant I select.
I have tried also placing the prices in the area allocated in 'Associated Products' panel but it shows in the front end as an addition (eg + $4.50) which is not desirable.
Is there a way to pass through the Simple Products price so it shows in the front end of the Configurable Product when I select each variant from the dropdown menu?
Do I need an extension to achieve this? Thanks in advance.
