Updating Product Pricing in Magento

Last updated 12/02/2021

How to update product pricing in Magento.


Cin7 can update the pricing of products in Magento - including the sale price field. It is also possible to choose which price tiers you'd like to use as your master pricing list.

There are some prerequisites for updating product pricing:

  • Products must be matched.
  • Products must have the channel Option 'Magento' ticked.

Instructions on how to do this are detailed in Matching Products between Magento and Cin7.

Setting up Product Pricing Updates

By default, product pricing is turned off. To set up product Pricing:

  1. Whilst logged in as an Administrator, from the left navigation, select Integrations, then select your Magento module.
  2. Click Settings, top right.
  3. Make sure the Products section is checked (it may already be checked).
  4. From within the Products menu check Enable Update Pricing. In order to update the pricing, click on Update Recent Modified Pricing on the Magento dashboard. This has to be manually triggered to update any pricing changes.
  5. Enter an Updated date. Only products updated after this date will be updated in Magento.
  6. Choose a Price Tier and Special Price Tier.
    This decides which price tiers in Cin7 to draw from. Choosing 'Default' for both options will choose the Retail Price and Special Price tiers respectively.

Special Pricing

Cin7 can update both the Regular Price and Sale Price in Magento, based on price tiers that you can specify in the settings.

If you assign 'default' to the Special Price drop down the price will only be updated during the period that the special price tiers specifies - i.e. starting on a certain date, and lasting a certain number of days. For more information on how the Special Price Tier works, see the Price Tiers article.

The Sale price in Magento will only be updated if the special price is less than the retail price.

Ignoring Special Price

If you do not wish the special price to update for your online store - you can set the Special Price to the same as the Retail Price above it.
