Video on using the Prices Tab

The video tutorial describes the three main sections of the Prices tab. These same sections are then detailed in the listed steps below.

Working with the Product Price

Product price

Pre-tax wholesale price - This is the amount that you paid for the product not including the tax.

Pre-tax retail price - This is the price that you are charging for the product not including the tax. It is suggested that this price be higher than your pre-tax wholesale price. The difference between the wholesale and retail price is the margin of profit that you make for selling the product.

Tax rule - The tax rule is defined elsewhere within PrestaShop. A link is provided here if you wish to create a new tax.

Unit Price - If your product is sold in multiple numbers, this option allows you to set a price per pack.

On sale icon - This option allows you to display an "on sale" icon on the product page. Their will also be text indicating the item is on sale in the product listing.

Specific Prices

Specific price

A specific price might be set for a country or group depending on the needs of your store. For example, if you want to provide a sale price on a product for all visitors, then you could set a price here and specify the group who can see the price as visitors. Any visitor who sees that product will see the price you have assigned. When you add a specific price, you are creating a price rule. Each rule is then listed in a table in the Specific Prices section.
