I'm using the 0.6.1 beta of e commerce with ss 2.4. The module extendedproductvaraiations seems to work globally, but i cannot create the variations sleceted from the variations list on the Product Variation tab in the Product editor. I click on createvariations and seems to go, got the silverstripe logo but when the page is reloaded is not even on that tab, and obviously no variations are created.
any suggestions?

yeah, and problems seem rather odd... I create a variation Option Group, then add Vaiation the varation options tab the system asks for extended product variations, which let's you add text, price and choose a product from the dropdown menu. ok, then we go to the product we need to manage, product variation tab, it asks you which option group you want for your product and then i assume that weith "Create variations" you can actually add the variation to your product. nothing happens.
and that's not all. if we skip the create variations step, on our product we can actually see a dropdown menu with the choices we have entered, if we DO create variations, this drop down shows only the name of the product and the extende product variations we entered are disappeared from variation option tab.

try it, because it's an useful extension but it's not working and there is no documentation about it, not even what could be the correct workflow to operate with variation (i could have done something wrong, but who knows with no docs?)

when doing tests with adding in some ways choices what i get as answer is:

[User Error] Versioned::get_version: Couldn't get ProductVariation.14, version 0


904 Versioned::set_reading_mode('');
906 $baseTable = ClassInfo::baseDataClass($class);
907 $query = singleton($class)->buildVersionSQL("\"{$baseTable}\".\"RecordID\" = $id AND \"{$baseTable}\".\"Version\" = $version");
908 $record = $query->execute()->record();
909 $className = $record['ClassName'];
910 if(!$className) {
911 Debug::show($query->sql());
912 Debug::show($record);
913 user_error("Versioned::get_version: Couldn't get $class.$id, version $version", E_USER_ERROR);
914 }
916 Versioned::set_reading_mode($oldMode);
917 return new $className($record);
918 }

I'm getting frustrated with e-commerce product variations module to get it to perform. Has anyone mastered this module and could point me in the right direction with the PHP?
Currently I have version 2.3.3 installed.

E-commerce is now working after a fashion with PayPal, however it's buggy and not passing the product description to the PayPal page. Any ideas/solutions gratefully received
