Magento Price Calculator Extension enables Area and Volume based pricing. It is suitable for products such as liquids, blinds, fabric, flooring, banners etc. Different input/output units are supported in this module such as centimeters, meters, millimeters, Inches and Feet. You can offer discounts to customers on various product sizes by using automated rules. These rules will automatically be triggered once the user will enter values within specified range.
How does Magento Dynamic Pricing Add-on Works:
This Advance Variation Pricing module will automatically create a “Price Calculator” tab for each product. In this tab price rules are manually defined such as below,
This rule defines following;
- Min and Max shows the size range,
- Two discounts, 10% for sizes between 15 – 30 % and 50% for sizes above 30.
- Area or volume, whichever is to be calculated?
- Discount in fixed or percentage values.
Multiple Input/Output Units – Magento Area Calculator
Following input and output unit types are supported, conversions are automatically done.
Base Price & Price Per Unit Area – Advance Variation Pricing
From the backend you define price per unit area. Suppose the base price of product is $100 and two custom options are created, Length and Height. If the customer enters 5 in Length field and 3 in Height, this module will then multiply 5 and 3 resulting in 15. Suppose that we have set ‘10’ as unit price then this extension will add “10 * 15” = $150 in the base price. So now our price will be $250. Once the size is over 15% then 10% discount will be applied as per the first rule. For invalid values an error messages will be shown.
Product Discounts – Square Footage Calculator
Discounts are always a key component of any marketing strategy. By using Magento custom price extension rules you can define discounts for different sizes in percentage or fixed values e.g. 10% discount for sizes between 15 – 30 % and 50% for sizes above 30. Important point is that discounts are applied on base prices.

How it Works
Custom options e.g. Height, Width, length etc. that are created from the backend will appear on product detail page. When customers will increase or decrease the value of any attribute such as the Length or Width, price will automatically increase or decrease accordingly. Suppose the base price of product is $100 and the customer enters 5 in Length and 3 in Height (custom options), this Magento custom price extension will then multiply 5 and 3 resulting in 15. Let us suppose that we have set “10” as per unit price from the backend then this extension will add “10 * 15” = $150 in the base price.
So now our price will be $250. Important point is that the discount is applied on $150 not on $250. Once the size is over 15% then 10% discount will be applied as per the first rule. For invalid values an error messages will be shown. This error message is customizable, until the correct values are not entered add to cart button does not work.
