Expansion of enterprise is the dream of a lot of online store owners. It is now a common phenomenon for online store owners to make use of multiple stores to further maximize the reach of their business and boost the returns from sales. Management of multi stores can be tasking but with its numerous advantages. The separate sale of products is a strong strategy that accrues more revenue and increases the efficiency of business localization. You can make use of different languages in different stores, pricing rules and even make use of a diversity of brands. This helps in the expansion of your possession and attraction of more audience. You no longer have to bore your customers by keeping exactly the same content on both multi-stores. Diversity is very important in business and is as key as any major factor you would expect. It may be a daunting task to change Magento prices of different stores. Your customers, however, do not expect your mass Magento prices on both stores to be exactly the same thing, due to the fact that both stores offer different service; Wholesale and Retail. This is where the importance of changing prices comes in.
It is important to know that, the main challenge faced during the running of multi stores is the amount of work it requires, mentioned above. That's why a lot of vendors develop the habit of installing different extensions for the minimization of time expenditure for the update of prices. This article will show you the steps and processes required to set up different prices for different stores in Magento 2 by employing the help of the Bulk Price Updater extension.
For instance, if you have two main stores, namely; Wholesale and Retail. Let’s take a look at the steps to change prices for the same product in these two stores.
For example, let’s look at how to update prices to minus 17 percent.
First of all, navigate to the Catalog, click on Bulk Price Updater, after this complete the following fields:
- Next - choose a “price” in the Basic Price space. Basic price is referred to as the start price, which we plan to alter;
- Then change the “price” to the Destination Price field. Destination Price is referred to as the final price for the products;
- Select the appropriate Destination Store View. In this example we selected “Wholesale Store View””;
- In the Update Type field, you can select the type of price between “Fixed” and “Percentage”. Here we chose “Percentage”;
- After this, we need to input the percentage value in the Update Value field. In our case we made use of the input of “-17” in the Update Value field, this means that our end prices on certain store view will be lesser than our start prices by 17%;
- This is not an obligatory step. However, the Bulk Price Updater has its own original filters which provide you with an opportunity to choose the specific category or product type and update all selected products with just one click. Open the Filters tab and make your selection. In our example, we made use of Categories and Store View filters. Click the Apply Filters button;
- Select products in the Assign column to change prices for them;
- Press the button Update Prices. After this your prices will become lesser by 17 percent;
- When you are done, you can compare different stores with their different Magento prices. This is the price of the previous product.
