Product Pricing / Configuration
Here we will do the pricing strategy of our product. If the product is of fixed size (mobile phone), then we will apply the static product pricing and if the product is of dynamic size (e.g carpets), then we will apply the dynamic product pricing.
On the left side, we will show the form that will be shown to visitors for ordering the product.
You can check or uncheck the field boxes you want to add to your storefront for this particular product. Moreover, you can edit the titles of the field properties too.
In variable size, you will add a minimum and maximum height and width of your product. Moreover, you will add default width and height, which will be shown as default values in the storefront input boxes of width and height.
- In ‘Depth’ you will add product depth. It is particularly used for box estimation that leads to shipping issues.
- In the weight section, you will add ‘Weight Type’ which will either be ‘per sqft’ or ‘per item’. Then you will add weight unit which will be ‘Grams’, ‘lbs’, or ‘oZ’. Then in the third field, you add the weight amount.
- Then there is a packing style i.e. soft class or Box. If you select a box, then you will add box properties. If you check Rigid, then the property will always be a hard class.
You can click the plus sign to add the sizing of your product. You can add a size label from the dropdown and then fill the other quantifications for the specific products.
For static size, you only have to select either you want a soft class or Box, If you select box packaging then you have to add sizing of the box. If you check the box ‘Rigid’ then you’ll also have the option of ‘Hard Class’.
- Soft Class: In this packaging, you can add foldable items, as it is a loose packing possibly of plastic. (some soft class items which are unfoldable are also categorized as rigid)
- Custom Box: In this sort of packaging you can define the size of your box, to cater to your big product which cannot be packed in soft class.
If you click ‘Rigid’ Checkbox, then it will show another packaging category called ‘Hard Class’.
- Hard Class: In this packaging, you will add hard materials that are rigid or unfoldable e.g Bricks.
You can define the pricing of your product in four ways
3. Tier Dynamic Quantity
4. Tier Fixed Quantity
One is by ‘SQFT’, by using this pricing structure, products with dynamic sizes can be sold i.e. carpets, artificial grass, etc.
We first have to define the retail price, If we set a retail price 10, then it means 1sqft equals $10. Then we have to enter a retail maximum i.e we entered 500. It means if a customer buys 500 or more pieces, then the cost will not $10 per sqft, but it will be $8 per sqft. If the customer buys haft the quantity of maximum retail price i.e 250, then it will cost $9 per sqft. It means 50% of the discounted price. If you don’t want to give any discount to the customer, you can select the retail minimum and maximum price to be equal.
For the wholesale price, you can add price for bulk items as shown below.
In standard STD pricing, you will simply add a retail price and wholesale price. It only denotes the pricing per unit of the product.
In Tier Dynamic Quantity, you can add price breaks, for example, you added a retail price for the first price break of 10 items. You can add as many price breaks by clicking the Plus sign. For example, you added a price break for 30 items minimum. They will follow their respective pricing strategy. It will be an input field of quantity in the storefront.
It means that from 1-10 items, the cost will be of a first price break, and from 11-30 items, the cost will be of the second price break.
In Tier Fixed Quantity there are same fields like Tier Dynamic quantity. But in this case, quantity is fixed i.e in the storefront, you will not get an input box for quantity, rather you will get the dropdown field of fixed quantities.
For example, if you are selling. 10 masks at the price of $10 and 30 at the price of $6 each. So, this is the selling criteria for tier fixed quantity.
In product images, you have to add images for each and every section mentioned on the left-hand side.
If you upload an image to categories section, it will show in a storefront like this;
If you upload an image to the product section, it will show in a storefront like this;
If you upload an image to the featured section, it will show in a storefront like this;
If you upload an image to the slider section, it will show in a storefront like this;
This section is specifically for adding multiple add ons to your product, For example, if you want to sell a hat with a jacket, then hat will be your option with the main product i.e. jacket or if you are selling your product with multiple options or properties, you will define them here. It will let the customer buy a product with different properties, moreover, you can add different pricing structures for different properties of the same product.
To create a particular product option, you first need to click the plus sign labeled with the red box in the picture above. It will show up a drop-down menu of all product options you added in the ‘Product options’ section.
You can drag to position the option fields from the right. It will be sorted on storefront assorted here.
Moreover, you can also add a quick product option by clicking plus sign in that field. After adding, product sub-options will appear (as you created in the ‘product option’ section).

Moreover, you can add additional options too.
