Add/remove available colors, and change default color from the decorated product page (not through "edit decoration")

Under Consideration

    Hey Sylvan Faber one potential issue with this is that changing the base color of a decorated product can affect the calculated wholesale and retail price. It would need to be repriced which would not be obvious if changing the color from the general tab. What about a link that would take you straight to the relevant step in the decorated product wizard where you can select the default color?

    Is your concern only about making the price change obvious to us or is there any technical reason like the need to run the pricing engine at the last step of the wizard in order to get price computed?

    Bit of both actually. It seems to be that the last steps of the wizard are already a good way to accomplish the task of changing available colors/setting default color, run the repricing and present the resulting price information to the user.

    Well, if it is a technical need, there is no way to skip the wizard I suppose.

    In that case, the shortcut link to edit blank colors should be in the manage drop-down menu instead of the product page in order to save a click and page load time, see below... What do you think?

    Responding to your comments on my other feature request that got merged with this one...

    I don't get how the two below screenshots would generate a different wholesale price?

    Catalog products typically have price difference between colors for example white shirt might be $3 vs yellow $4 changing which color is the default could then affect wholesale and retail price of a decorated product.

    Shortcut link to the products/colors step of the decorated product wizard seems like the most likely way this request could be addressed. Will keep under consideration and watch for votes on this.

    So, assuming a blank that has white and colors price being different, decorated product that is offered on an affiliate store in, let's say, black and white would have a different wholesale price for the store owner if he decides to display it in black rather than in white???

    Sylvan Faber that's correct. To avoid noise, please submit a support ticket if you need clarification or help on any existing functionality. Appreciate the feedback.

    Sorry for the noise but that was directly related to my feature request, and I didn't want to have to explain all over again in a support ticket. Can we tag you in a support ticket? I'll delete my messages to clean the page in a bit...

    I totally agree with this and I would like to see the process for switching decorated product colors edited.  It currently takes about 8-10 clicks to accomplish this.  On top of that, you would have no idea to know how to attempt this unless you put in a ticket or were somehow told.  Currently, you have to edit the product and go all the way to the last step, which is product pricing.  You then go back a step to Configure Batch Settings in order to change/add/delete colors on a decorated product.  This is so inefficient and hidden.
