No two company’s pricing needs are exactly alike. To accommodate a multitude of pricing scenarios, we’ve created a powerful pricing engine within the PIM.
What is a Price Base?
A price base is a key for a price record that allows the PIM to know to which channel a particular price record belongs. Each published channel has a single price base associated with it.
What Are Price Bases Used For?
If you are selling products across multiple websites or marketplaces or potentially in different currencies you may need to sell the same product at different prices. By using separate price bases tied to separate channels you can effectively manage all your published prices from a single point inside the PIM.
How Many Price Bases Can I Setup?
The PIM does not currently restrict the number of potential price bases a product can have. However each channel is tied to a single price base.
The price base is a free text field. There is no previous configuration needed to use a different base. Just make sure the price record and the channel price base are using the same value.
