This FAQ addresses sales vs RRP pricing when uploading products to the marketplace and how to make your desired pricing what's shown in the marketplace.
By default, we send the RRP and the Sale Price from your e-commerce store to a marketplace. The 'Sale Price' is then used as the price of the product on the marketplace. If the RRP is greater than the Sale Price then Was/Now pricing is automatically enabled.
Trade Me Guidelines for Discounted Pricing
Please note, Trade Me has strict guidelines around discounted pricing and the use of Was/Now Pricing so make sure you are familiar with the following guidelines and adjust the RRP or Sale price accordingly.
How To Force RRP or Sale Price
This is something you might want to do if you have sale prices in your incoming product feed but only want to upload RRP to the marketplace. Or, you want the sale price to show on the marketplace without strikethrough pricing, which means that the RRP needs to match the Sale price.
• Go to Settings > the marketplace you want to make the change on > General and scroll down to the "Your products" section. There is an option to choose 'How we deal with Sale versus RRP?'
• From the dropdown, select the option you prefer.
• Click 'Update Settings' to save, then go to your dashboard. G
Here's a summary for each of the dropdown options.
NONE - Do not change pricing from the original pricing in the product feed. If the Sale price is different from the RRP, upload both to the marketplace and allow the Sale price to be shown, with a strikethrough showing the original RRP (so long as the marketplace supports this)
SALE OVERRIDES RRP - Set the RRP to be the sale price, which eliminates the strikethrough on the marketplace. Useful for a retailer who wants to show "everyday low prices" rather than showing that the price is actually discounted
RRP OVERRIDES SALE - Set the Sale price to be the same as the RRP, disregarding all promotional pricing, including promotions created in Omnivore. Useful for a retailer who wants to not push the Sale prices from their own website onto the marketplace
RRP OVERRIDES SALE NOT PROMOS - Set the Sale price to be the same as the RRP, disregarding all promotional pricing, excluding promotions created in Omnivore. Useful for a retailer who wants to set promotional pricing completely separate from what they have on their own site; this method allows them to apply Omnivore promotions to the original RRP.
