Is it possible to sell by size and weight?

Sell at unit prices or allow customers to purchase precise quantities with the price calculator

Do you know that you can sell your products based on the price per unit?
If you sell T-shirts or mobile phones it is easy to enter all the possible variables, but when you have to sell to size, for example a fabric, coffee or a road trip because you rent cars, then it gets complicated, but there is no problem.

Some plugins allow this possibility and allow your customers to calculate the quantity of product they want.
