How To Use the Auto Price Feature?

You will see this table below. This table allows you to price out a unique category on your Website. For instance, you have the ability to price dining room at a different price than living room, etc ..

You also have the ability to price unique brands with a unique markup as well (provided the manufacturer has given us their wholesale pricing via the data feed). Under "Brand" where it says "All", this means you will add a price to all of the manufacturers within that category. If you wish to add a unique markup to a particular manufacturer, choose that manufacturer from the drop down list at the bottom of the "Brand" column, then choose your category from the drop down list at the bottom of the "Category" column, and click "Add" at the far right. Doing this will add another column with your chosen brand and category.

To use the table, enter your markup in the MSRP, Everyday Price and / or Sale Price columns. Your markup should be entered as something like 1.84, 2.15, or whatever you use. Note, you do not have to markup MSRP and Sale Price, if you do not want to mark these up, leave a 0 in these fields.

How To Use the Auto Price Feature?The "Price Ending" will round all your prices to the number entered. So for instance, if you want all your prices to end in 8.98, enter 8.98 in the "Price Ending" field. If you do not wish to round your prices, simply enter 0.

When you have entered all of your markups, click the "Save & Run" button at the bottom. This will run the markup to your wholesale prices and price out the products on your Website. If you wish to remove all the prices from a particular category, click the "Remove Prices From Products" button. For instance, this will delete all the prices from your bedroom category, and so on.

If you wish to remove a column, click "Delete".

Margins:

The auto price marks the items' wholesale price up by a margin. As a rule of thumb, when you enter the following margins below, it will markup the items accordingly:
1 = 100% increase
2 = 200% increase
3 = 300% increase
4 = 400% increase
5 = 500% increase
etc ...
