The view displays a compact list of prices, which can be filtered by market or customer group. Market filtering displays both active and inactive markets.

The same item can be available in several markets. For each market, you can define multiple currencies and establish a different price for each one.

For each product or variant, you can define the following pricing information.

  • market
  • price
  • valid date range
  • sale type
  • sale code
  • minimum quantity

In many cases, pricing information comes from an external system, which may prohibit modifications in Episerver Commerce.
