Custom-made products > new product custom post type
The ultimate upsell is to tailor a product to the exact specifications of one particular customer because the shop owner may charge a lot more for this custom-made product. Right now the Woo Commerce system does not easily allow for this.
I am not a programmer but I could see this being implemented with a new 'product custom post type'. The design would have to be identical to the product page as it now looks in each individual WooCommerce theme. However, the cart functionality is taken out and replaced by a simple "contact us" button leading to contact page.
- A shop can sell normal products and custom-made products, all in the same look > usability / consistency
- The authoring backend can stay the same > ease of use for shop-owners and their authors
- Ralted products may also offer custom-made products > elegant upsell
I believe that the pay-off for shop owners could potentially be great and new custom post type is fairly easy to implement by Woo.

I need something like this badly. Right now I sell main products that are composed of items like 3 types of posts, caps, sections etc. The customer calculates how much of each item they need and they press 'add to cart' for each item many times.
