Step 7

Once in the price management console, choose the following method of how to manage prices:

  1. Import pricing from file allows an upload of a custom spreadsheet of prices
  2. Pricing setup in the Base Rule is considered “global”, and the pricing rules will apply to all products in all categories.
  3. Category Rules allow prices to be set for a specific to a category of items.
  4. Product Rules work the same way that Category Rules do, the key difference, is that the changes made in Product Rules only apply to specifically chose SKUs

Step 5

Start by editing the Base Rule. After clicking on the "Edit Base Rule" icon, the following screen will appear:

  1. When Blue, Retail Prices are shown. When flipped to grey, Retail Prices are hidden.
  2. When setting the global "Base Rule", always select "Cost-Based" from the dropdown. The other option is "Fixed Price", which will be relevant when setting category or product rules.
  3. Choose between Multiplier, Gross Margin, or Markup
    • Multiplier - multiplies the wholesale/landed cost with the factor entered into the field
    • Gross Margin - the percentage difference between the selling price and the profit
    • Markup - the percentage difference between the actual cost and the selling price
  4. If desired, the rounding tool dropdown will round the price up or down to a specific number.

Please Note: The List Pricing works the same as the retail pricing. As a general rule, always ensure the list multiplier will result in a higher cost than the retail multiplier.

  1. Cost Based or Fixed Price: To set a retail multiplier based on each product's cost, use "Cost Based". To have every item in the chosen categories show the same price, then use "Fixed Price" (For example, if the store advertises that all mattresses are $1,000, select the mattresses categories, then set a fixed price of $1,000)
  2. Choose between Multiplier, Gross Margin, or Markup
    • Multiplier - multiplies the wholesale/landed cost with the factor entered into the field
    • Gross Margin - the percentage difference between the selling price and the profit
    • Markup - the percentage difference between the actual cost and the selling price
  3. If desired, the rounding tool dropdown will round the price up or down to a specific number.
