Updating Product Pricing in WooCommerce

Last updated 30/09/2020

How to update product pricing in WooCommerce.

Overview


Cin7 can update the pricing of products in WooCommerce - 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 or uploaded to WooCommerce via Cin7.
  • Products must have the channel Option "WooCommerce" selected.

Setting up Product Pricing Updates


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

  1. While logged in as an Administrator, from the left navigation, select Integrations, then WooCommerce.
  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 WooCommerce 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 WooCommerce.
  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 WooCommerce, 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, 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 WooCommerce 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.
