Setting Store-Wide Sales Prices

There are useful tools hidden in the admin console.

In the Configuration > Maintenance > Store Wide Maintenance menu for example, you can find the ‘On Sale‘ prompt for entities, set a Sales Discount Percentage for entities, and setting a global Quantity Discount Table for every product in your store.

The procedures are straight forward enough, but you need to be aware of the effects.To set the ‘On Sale‘ prompt for entities:

  1. Select a prompt from the drop-down list
  2. Select a Category, Department or Manufacturer (if you wish to use this prompt for all entities, leave all three set to ‘All…’)
  3. Click Submit

If you select a specific entity name, the other two fields need to be set to ‘All…’.

Be aware: The prompt you choose will override any previous prompts set in the Product > Options tab for all Products under the entity you select.

To set a ‘Sales Discount Percentage’ for entities:

  1. Enter a Discount Percentage without the % sign (i.e. 20 )
  2. Select a Category, Department or Manufacturer (if you wish to use this prompt for all entities, leave all three set to ‘All…’)
  3. Then click Submit

Note that if you select a specific entity name, the other two fields need to be set to ‘All…’. and the discount you set will override any previous ‘Sale Price:’ entries for all variants of all products under the entity you select.

To eliminate ALL sales pricing for ALL products, leave all three entities set to ‘All…’, enter zero (0) for the Discount Percentage, and click Submit.

To set a global Quantity Discount Table for ALL products, select the Quantity Discount Table you wish to use from the drop-down list and click submit.

The discount table you set will override any previous ‘Quantity Discount Table:’ selection for ALL Products. To eliminate ALL Quantity Discount Tables for ALL products, leave the drop-down set to “-select-” , and click Submit.
