How is a product's price determined?
There are a number of different factors that can determine the price of a product, not just the price you enter when adding/editing the product. Things like bulk discounts, sales, vouchers - these can all have an affect on the price.
i) If a product has a 'sale' that covers it (not the individual sale price but through the create a sale feature) then this will only be applied to the normal price for the product (and not any bulk discount or other price).
ii) If you enter an individual sale price for a product (on the add/edit product page) - this will override any sale created.
iii) You cannot enter a sale price for variations, if a product has different pricing set for variations but also a sale price, we'll use the sale price.
iv) If you enter an individual bulk discount price for a product (on the add/edit product page) - this will override any bulk discount created that covers multiple products.
v) When deciding on the price of a product, we'll look at the following:
a) a trade pricing band price
b) a percentage discount set for a trade account
c) a sale price entered on a product
d) a sale price created as part of a sale
If the platform finds a price entered for (a) then we'll use that price. If not we'll look for (b) and so on down the list.
