Hi. How can we help?

Adding product unit prices

A unit price is the price per item or measurement. Add a unit price to your products to help your customers compare products. For example, comparing two products sold by the roll is much easier with the unit price:

  • A 150 foot roll, 24 inches wide, $249.99. Unit price: $0.83/ square foot.
  • A 160 foot roll, 18 inches wide, $219.99.  Unit price: $0.92/ square foot.

Enable unit prices

  1. Login to your eCom Back Office and click Settings.
  2. Under the Store settings column, click Workflow.
  3. At the top of the screen enable the switch labeled Unit price.
  4. Click Save.
