How to get base price and optional items to show up

The first option will always add to the price. So an item with a base price of $10 and the drop down option with attributes:

Option 1:3.00~Option 2:4.00

will show:

Option 1 $13.00
Option 2 $14.00

in the drop down box.

What you can do here is to add a hidden option for your first item. In other words:

Option 1
Name - Hidden Option
Type - Text Box
Active - No
Attributes -

Option 2
Name - Add Some Option
Type - Drop Down
Active - Yes
Attributes - Option 1:3.00~Option 2:4.00

That will show:

Price: $10.00
Option 1 Add $3.00
Option 2 Add $4.00

on the site.

And though I don't believe it would help you here, I wanted to note that a check box as option #1 does not trigger the combo price setting. That's an easy option if you have just one addition.
