Price rules

Price rules

ChannelEngine has multiple options to adjust the price of a product that’s being sent to a channel. Price rules will add or subtract an amount in the used currency. It is also possible to add or subtract a percentage of the price. The price rules can be managed under Channels > Price Rules in the menu at the left.

In this overview, it’s possible to add a price rule or a currency conversion or change existing ones. Click “add price rule” to add a new price rule.

The price rules can be applied on multiple levels:

Channel = Applicable on all products for a certain channel
Listing = Applicable on a chosen listing for a certain channel

Note: Multiple price rules are allowed as long as these rules only consist of one type. This means you can have an unlimited amount of channel price rules and Listing price rules, but not combined.

Pricing options

When adding a price rule it’s possible to pick your own amount (left) or percentage (right) to add or subtract. There is an additional option to exclusively apply the rules to products with a certain price. It is also possible to select a range of dates so it’ll automatically go back to the normal price after a certain date. This way, you can offer discounts for a certain amount of time, without having to change everything back at the end. At “level” you pick the channel, listing or global level of your pricing. After applying the price rules, it’s also possible to round the number using one of the options that are available to avoid weird prices. For example, round UP to .99 (€2,64 -> €2,99) or DOWN to nearest .05 (€6,83 -> €6,80).

Note: Percentage applies to the current price. Example: The original price is 2 euro. Filling in 30 in the percentage field will result in the new price being 2.60 euro.

Convert currency

It is also possible to convert the currency to the local currency of a channel. This conversion can be applied on a channel level, so it will only be applied to a certain country. By choosing which currency to convert to, ChannelEngine will regularly update the exchange rate, so prices will always be up-to-date.
