    I think what I want to achieve is a way to assign a grouped product to more than one parent, but that is not allowed.

    A simple example would be having a camera body and at time of purchase adding a lense from a list of lenses (I envision the grouped product table whereby a person adds a lense or maybe 2 lenses). This issue is that once you assign that lense as a grouped item and select the body as the parent – you now are not able to assign it to any other camera body that the lense would be compatible with. Does this make sense. How would you approach this? I like the fact that the grouped products add links to grouped product details page and it is easy to add the item for the visitor.

    The only other solution I can see might be with variable products, I think.

    The example above is an illustration of my application – what my client is really selling are Satellite phones and with the phone he wants to give visitors the ability to add a pre-paid card of minutes. There are various minute packages and of course these packages are available to more than one phone.

    Thanks for your help and suggestions.


    Probably a better approach would be to use the cross-sells and up-sells feature which allows you to recommend related products to your customers. You can also try extensions like: Product Bundles, Chained Products and Force Sells.
