If you have multiple locations or branches, it can happen that an item is not always the same price from store to store. By customer request, erento has introduced ‘location pricing’ to better reflect the pricing requirements of your business.
Default pricing vs. location pricing
To launch location pricing, we first needed to create ‘default’ prices. You will already be familiar with the concept of ‘default’ if you have edited your opening hours and contact details. The default price is required when a customer is searching for an item without entering a desired location. It acts as a fallback when it is not clear what price should be displayed. Only when a customer enters a location when searching can we show the location price (if available).
There are three possibilities to edit location pricing…
1. Location pricing in ‘My erento’
In My erento you can add, edit and delete an items pricing for each location. To simplify things we have combined the pricing and location fields in one section called ‘Locations & Pricing’.
1. Choose the locations where the item is available.
2. Select a pricing model and enter the default price.
3. Click on the ‘Show different location pricing’ link.
4. A table will open with your chosen locations where you are able to add, edit or delete the pricing.
If you select a different pricing model your location prices will be lost. Furthermore, an item can only have one pricing model.
2. Upload your location pricing via erento Customer Support
Editing individual pricing for every item could be exhausting if you have many items on erento. If you would like to edit location pricing in bulk, erento can provide you with a template file (in .csv format) where you can enter all of your location prices. Simply E-mail it back to us and we will do the upload for you. To request a template, simply phone the erento Customer Support Team or write an E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Location prices via the erento API
Location pricing has already been available for two weeks via the erento API. Developers can inform themselves about the new feature in the erento API documentation.
