Have you ever wondered how to set an individual price for each design area on your product? Perhaps you have an item you want to sell which doesn’t really fit in any of your default pricing settings in your system? In DecoNetwork you can override all of the default settings for each individual product, and make the prices different to what other products are offering. You may find today’s example not to be very realistic. But for the purpose of this tutorial it will work well, and it should give you an idea of what you can do in your store in regards to the prices. In this tutorial I will show you how to create a t-shirt with 5 different design areas on the front and each one of them will have a different price.
The prices will be as shown below and only for printing (which means that the price doesn’t include the base price of the garment):
Again, this will require customizing prices on the product level, but I still should start with the defaults, and in fact this is actually a good occasion to go through the hierarchy of prices in Deco Network.
1. In this scenario I will setup the price for Printing, so first I need to go to Manage Fulfillment > Settings > and click on Printing
2. Click on Decoration Pricing Methods
3. You will find three options there:
- White/light/dark – this is for product where you charge differently for printing on white garments versus dark garment
- Single – this one is used when the color of the garment doesn’t matter
- Table – you can select this one when there is a dependency in the price whether you print front only, back only, or front and back
For printing on garments you will most likely choose option one or three. In this scenario however I decided to choose option two just to keep it simple (remember this scenario was created for the presentational purpose only)
4. Save the changes
5. Now, still being on the printing page, please click on “Default Decoration Pricing.” This will let you to set the default price per design area.
In this place you may have a question what should I do if I want to use price tables for hats products, but single price for blankets, or apparel. The answer is that this is just the default pricing method. You can override that selection for each product type in Products > Product Type > Configure Defaults. OK, but what if I want to change price for each design area on individual product under the product type “Apparel.” The answer is, this is what we are going to do next 🙂
6. To set individual prices for each design area, I will first create those design areas as shown in step 1 in Manage Fulfillment > Products > “configure” for one of the existing products (or you can also create a new product) > views&colors
8. By default you are not going to see many options on the pop up window. In order to see them, select “override default decoration pricing for this product” then select “Use Advanced Pricing” This will now show you all of the locations on your product. Make sure to untick all of the checkboxes next to area names in order to override those prices.
9. Save the changes 🙂
This tutorial should give you a good understanding of how you can modify prices on each level of pricing structure in fulfillment center. There is one more level where those prices can be affected on the store level (by changing the markup) but this is beyond the scope of this tutorial. That said, I am happy to address any questions you may have. Also, if you feel that another tutorial is needed to cover store markup, please let me know in your comments.
Just to summarize and revise everything what we have done, think about the pricing hierarchy in DecoNetwork as shown below:
