CBC Pricing by including price level

Greetings of the day!

I have a query for a project we plan in CBC at Ipsos in India. Price is one of the attributes in this study and here we are using price range as levels for e.g. Rs. 2000 – Rs 3000, Rs 3000 – Rs. 4000 and so on. The client cannot provide a single price point.
The client is keen that as soon as the respondent makes a choice, we should answer actual price that he is willing to pay in the price range that he has chosen for every task. Further using each of the prices stated by the various respondents we want to calculate the utilities and use it in simulation.
We have in total 10 different attributes in the design.

Require your help to understand what is the best option to do this bit in CBC.

That indeed is a strange questioning technique, and I hope you have an analysis plan to make sense of it all, as you will be on your own and Sawtooth Software will not automatically support such an approach.  

It is possible to insert a question right below a CBC task (such as a numeric question) or on a page inbetween CBC questions.  But, what you do with those additional responses is up to you.  Don't expect that our software will know what you are up to, or what to do with those extra numeric responses.
