Determining Price

Your storefront displays both list price (e.g., MSRP or retail price) and selling price (e.g. "special price”). The list price only displays if it's greater than the special price.
The standard Regular Price and Special Price for each item come directly from Counterpoint based on your ecommerce control settings.

List (Regular) Prices and Selling (Special ) Prices

NCR CounterPoint: Setup / Ecommerce / Control
Price-1 displays as the Regular Price in your online store. The calculated selling price displays as the Special Price in your online store.

To change how NCR Counterpoint determines prices for your online store, select Setup / Ecommerce / Control.
On the Prices tab, choose the price level or price method to use for the selling prices and list prices in your online store.

The list price is typically the retail price of an item. Most merchants use Price-1 for their list prices.

The special price is the price a shopper will actually pay for an item. Most merchants use Calculated price for their special prices.

Discounting (or Marking Up) All Prices

You can optionally discount or mark up all of NCR Counterpoint's special prices or regular prices in your online store. If you select Discount or Markup for the Discount method, then enter a percentage to discount or mark up the price.

Using Calculated Prices

Calculated prices are based on pricing defined in Inventory / Prices / Item Prices and take into account price codes and sale pricing. When using Calculated price for the regular price or the special price, CounterPoint will calculate prices based on the rules defined for the Customer # on the Prices tab. Calculated price also recognizes oversized pricing, alternate unit pricing, location-specific pricing (based on the store specified on the Main tab) and current sale prices.

Calculated prices use the same sales prices in NCR CounterPoint and in your online store.

Calculated prices are calculated based on the Customer # specified on the Prices tab, a quantity of one, and the date and time the item was published. If you specify calculated prices and there are no pricing rules defined for an item, then Price-1 is used.

Add a default customer (e.g., ONLINE) using Customers / Customers in NCR Counterpoint and define specific pricing rules for that customer. On the Prices tab of Setup / Ecommerce / Control, enter the default customer number and choose Calculated price for selling price and/or list price. The pricing rules defined for the default customer will be used for all the items in your online store.
