I've just started using CS Cart and I'm wondering if it is possible to change a price on a variable such as length?

For example we have a cable which is 1-9999m, this is priced per unit, is it possible to set up a variable to times the number of units by the cost?

I realise this could be set up under a configurable product but I don't want to set up 10,000 individual products to reflect the length of cable

You should create a product with a starting price of 1m then they can select a length by the Quantity input and the price can adjust that way. You can also set the product price to $0 and force a minimum order qty of 1m.

Another option is to price it in blocks of 5 or 10 meters. Set options for the product so you're only creating say 100 options and you'll only have to set the price in 100 options generated.
