Step by Step
         Creating Price Groups
By Ahmed Saad, Technology Matrix Group - Copyright 2001
Price Groups enable you to charge different customers different prices.  This will help you setup discounts for wholesalers, members, or friends.  Assigned customers must login before they can access special pricing setup for that group.  You can create as many price groups as you need and have a number of pricing options.  If a customer is assigned to more than one price group, he may get the lowest price, or the highest price based on how you configure your store settings.  For more information on using price groups click here.

Step 1

Login to your store from admin.   Expand your store by clicking on the triangular blue arrow.  Expand "Price Groups" by clicking on the triangular blue arrow and you will see an "Add Price Group" link under it.  Click on that and the right frame will show a screen similar to the one below:

Type in a name for your price group and select the price you want the customer to receive.  You can offer the item at cost provided that you actually put a value in the cost field of the products you plan to later assign.  You can offer items at the retail price, but it doesn't make much sense to go through the hassle of creating a price group to offer items at their regular price.  You can also set the price to be a percentage of the cost or the retail price (even over 100%).  After you choose how you want the group to handle the prices, click "Add".  The group will be added and 2 more tabs will appear on the top bar.  You will also notice that the newly created group has a link under "Price Groups" in the left frame.  Clicking on that link in the left frame in the future will allow you to edit the group.

Step 2

The first tab is "Customers" which will allow you to selectively assign customers to the price group.

Customers assigned to the group will see the products with the group's pricing while everyone else will see the retail prices.   Again customers will need to login before they can see the prices.  You can use the "Search" function to locate a customer or a commonality among a group of customers, such as the domain of their e-mail.  This will be particularly useful for setting a price group discount if you have corporate/group accounts.

Step 3

The second tab is "Products".  You can select the products you want to include in the price group from the list of products in your store.  You can use the "Search" function to locate a product or a keyword in multiple products aided by the "Assigned" and "Unassigned" tab.
