Customers love discounts and deals. Putting a product on sale or showing that this very price is less than a customer will find elsewhere is a great way to get more orders. And this is how the “Sale price” feature works.
In this article:
- Setting a "Compare to"/Sale price
- Customizing "Compare to" prices
- Showing the sale price on the products list
- Other promo features
You can set the special “Compare to” price for your product and this price will be shown struck out to demonstrate how much the current price is better. For example, if you want to show that your prices are better if compared to your competitors, you can use this field to inform how much they charge for the same product.
The other way is to represent your regular price when you want to put a product on sale or to show the suggested retail price (“MRP”, “List price”, etc.)
Setting a "Compare to"/Sale price

2. Click the icon near the product price:
3. Set the "Compare to" price and save:
