Retail price does not work

Apr 23, 2012 2:55 AM



Man am I getting a head ache over this.  Spent the last 5 hours trying to work this one out.......  less than impressed.


This product for example: ish-farm-1000


In the back end it has a retail price set to $1300 and a sale price of $1200


The price setting on the produce shows "AU - Consumer $1200.00"


If I change the sale price the price setting changes to that.


Now regardless if the product is ticked as onsale or not, the checkout displays the onsale price every time right accross the site.


I am at a complete loss and to be honest already sick of the problems I have having with this product and the $1500 template that should work right out of the box...

    Hey Paul.

    Just going through some bits first so they are clear you may realise some or all of this already.


    - Recommended Retail Price is of course the RRP not the actual sale price.

    - The price below that is sell price, not sale price. Some people make that mistake which I have seen a number of times. Sell price is the price it sells for. g_product_prices


    - On Sale? - when set, the tag {tag_onsale} in the                 large product layout renders 1 if product on sale, otherwise 0.


    If a product is on sale you change the price and tick the on Sale option.


    In terms of layout and look and feel this is CSS etc. You can set the above tag as part of a class on elements which changes depending on if it is on sale or not. You can then add style, hide elements, show elements, show an image that says "on sale" and so on.


    As a last note any 3rd party template you purchase has nothing to do with BC and if you feel there is any faults with it contact the people who you got it from to inform them.

    Retail Price is always that everywhere

  will be the developers of the template, but those guys would not ship a buggy template. Sounds like the Developer you got did not do a good job modifying for you if you have lots of issues.
    Nothing strange about the arrangement though. You hired someone, they bought a template to use to modify, While I am not a total fan of that it helps keeps the cost and development time down for you.

    I of course do not know the situation but if you still talking with your developer I would get them to fix up/address any issues you feel are outstanding.
