Could anyone advise if there are any hesitations to using alternative specific pricing vs. conditional pricing for a CBC?
Let's say we are testing a variety of pack sizes: 10-pack, 20-pack, 50-pack, 100-pack. So we can't just use a single pricing attribute because they are priced so differently in real life. So the normal approach (at least for me) would be to use conditional pricing. However, with conditional pricing you are restricted to the same number of prices for each pack size. In my current project, the client is most interested in the best seller (e.g., the 20-pack) and so wants to test more price points (7 of them). Most other pack sizes only need 2 or 3 price points. It seems I would more efficiently use my degrees of freedom (parameters) by using alternative specific pricing.
But this begs the question why anyone would use conditional pricing, since it seems like alternative specific pricing provides a broader range of more customizable solutions. I know I am jumping the gun saying this, but because conditional pricing is available, it makes me hesitant to try a different method. I suppose conditional pricing is easier to execute than alternative specific pricing, so better for the beginner user. Not to mention conditional pricing is available without the advanced module.
