Setting Up Different Product Prices in OpenCart

One of the secrets of success is pricing your products properly. Good pricing strategy can increase the number of products sold, creating the foundation for a business that will prosper.

If you are an OpenCart retailer, you can set product prices in the way you like, so the product fee on the front-end can be changed relying on which taxes and discounts you have applied to them.

Regular Product Price

Open back-end administration dashboard and go to Catalog-> Products, select the necessary item or create new one and in the tab Data place value for which you need the product to be sold to the clients.

At the front-end this value will be displayed next to ‘Price’ -

Price With or Without Tax

In case your goods are not taxable, you might need to turn off price without tax displaying. For that you need to open System -> Settings-> Options and the field ‘Display Prices with Tax’ set to NO.

In case you would like for the clients to see under total price also tax-excluded value, you may turn on this option.

Show Price for Logged in Users Only

OpenCart Administration Dashboard lets you restrict the view of pricing for customers that are not logged in. The setting allowing this is also available in the same section mentioned above. You need to scroll down and select YES to show prices when a customer is logged in, or select NO if you want to display pricing on products regardless of customer login status.
