There are many monetary values to consider in a shop system. This page aims to list and explain them.

Products

Multiple prices can be displayed on a product page, these may include:

  • Original price
  • Variation price
  • Recommended retail price
  • Discounted price
    • temporary reduction
    • 'your' group discount
  • Discount amount (total savings)
