Static pricing

Overview

Static pricing (without base price) configurations enable you to control product costs for each possible combination of options available to shoppers in the cart. 

Example:

A yearly subscription for which you need to set pricing based on the number of users while also offering volume discounts. Static pricing (without base price) offers the most control over the costs shoppers pay for any combination of options. You need to keep in mind that you have to define prices manually for all combinations, and that with the addition of pricing options, the setup grows in complexity.

Availability

All Avangate accounts. 

Requirements

Create at least a product/subscription plan before defining pricing. 

Type

  • Net: without taxes - Avangate applies extra taxes to the default price, such as Tax/VAT for US/EU orders during  the ordering process. 
  • Gross: with taxes included - Avangate takes the taxes out of the costs paid by shoppers, without modifying the price during the ordering process. 

Currency

When defining product prices you can:

  1. Configure the price only for the default currency - Avangate converts amounts in the cart based on the currency selected by/for shoppers. Currency rates are available here: https://secure.avangate.com/content/...p?CURRENCY=USD

    This is an XML schema with the corresponding values for the other currencies compared to the one supplied in the CURRENCY query parameter.

  2. Specify prices in all currencies available for your account - Avangate serves shoppers the prices for all the currencies you set up without converting the amounts. 

Basic setup

You don't define a price when using static pricing (without base price). Instead, make your way to the Pricing tab, and first create all options for a product, like volume pricing and any other price options. Configure costs only after you add all product options, since any change resets your configuration.

<h2>Advanced setup</h2>

Access advanced pricing/charge options by editing product and navigating to the Pricing tab. This area enables you to edit and create pricing configurations and create charge models that include:

  • Volume pricing
  • Custom recurring charges
  • Advanced pricing options
  • Pay-per-use (Metered billing)
  • Tiered charges

When using Static pricing (without base price), you need to define the pricing scheme through each individual pricing option, and as such, introducing a single price parameter becomes irrelevant. The Avangate system automatically displays all possible combinations (unit intervals and pricing options). In the Pricing area at the top of the screen but all combination will need to be configured manually, at least for the default currency.  Define the price for each option, choose between Net and Gross and hit Update Prices. 

Import a static pricing configuration

For products/subscription plans with Static pricing (without base price) you have the option of importing the pricing configuration. 

  1. Define the pricing scheme. 
  2. Select the Import tab in the Prices area. 
  3. Optional: Download an example of the product prices schema.
  4. Fill in prices for each possible combination of options. 
  5. Upload the resulting CSV file.
