Why can't different Variant Options have different pricing?

I am trying to work out how to do this, I feel like it's a simple task but for the life of me can't work it out, So my client sells photographic prints, and has 2 types of prints for each image see below on how I had envisioned it to work : 

Print Only Size (choose an option)

12x18in   $160
16x24in  $200
20x30in  $250
60x90in  $360

Quantity (choose)


Metal Print Size (choose an option)

A4   $190
12x18in   $250
16x24in   $365
20x30in  $500

Quantity (choose)


When I am inputting the different variants into the product, in the Edit Variants section, where you change the pricing for each, I am getting both print options blended together with the one price (see screenshots below). Am I being silly and this can't be achieved?


Is there a way around it other than creating a seperate product for the different print options?

Thank you,

Although they aren't the same sizings for each material, as in the A4 size is only available in the Metal option, and the 60x90 is only available in the Print Only option.

For folks that may not readily see the solution. Set the Stock to zero for A4/None and 60 x 90 in/Metal in the case of this particular scenario.

SS is a bit funky in the way it handles variants. There is some fallout from this set up. The from price always shows zero. To overcome this you can set the price for the non-existent variants to the lowest of all the prices. You just have to remember to never set the Stock to non-zero values. You also get Sold Out messages if you select one of the non-existent variants.

It may be possible to overcome these "features" of how SS does things with some custom code. You'd have to search the forum or ask a question for a particular need.
