CSV Based Pricing

Magento CSV and Tabular pricing

The limitation is that is only uses two dimensions e.g. in price calculator, price is based on length, width, height etc., but in CSV pricing only two dimensions can be used such as length and width. A plus point is the freedom of values that can be entered in spreadsheet and reduced time consumption.
