Price list

contains the standard price for each of a group of associated items. Typically, a price list is linked to a customer or group of customers allowing you to easily offer customer-specific pricing.

Step by step

Step 1: Configure your ERP to include Was / Now pricing

Configure ERP

The price list in your ERP contains the standard price for each of a group of associated items. An item can belong to more than one price list.

To configure your ERP to allow for Was / Now pricing, create two price lists with the same set of products; the first list has the Was price, the second list has the Now price.

Key points

  • Typically, the Now price is the live price that is obtained from your ERP in real-time.

  • The Was price is only displayed if it is strictly less than than the Now price.

Link the price lists to the customers you wish to offer Was / No pricing to.

Step 2: Contact us to switch feature on
