Pricing products of unknown weight
Here we refer to products as 'irregular' if they are sold according to weight/volume but the exact quantity is not known until time of harvest/distribution.
Some examples include meat, slices of cheese, large vegetables.
There are a number of different tools available on the OFN platform to help manage and organise these sales.

Option 1: create variants with fixed prices

One option for items which vary in weight is to create variants for your products based on weight ranges but charge a fixed price for all items that fall within the range. For example, if butternut squash costs £1/kg then you could list the variants with the following fixed prices:
  • Small (0.7 - 0.9 kg) £0.80
  • Medium (0.9 - 1.1 kg) £1.00
  • Large (1.1 - 1.3 kg) £1.20
  • Extra Large (1.3 - 1.5 kg) £1.40

Option 2: create variants with known weights

If you know the weight of all your whole fish, for example, in advance you can use the variant functionality to directly display the precise price for each item.
