Default Is the sale price the sale price?

I am tinkering with the new sales-items (love it by the way!) and have noticed that for all the merchants I am using the price field holds the sale price and the sale-price field holds the original price...

I know I can just update the code to change the fields around... just wondering if this is an anomaly with the merchants I happen to use?

Who is the merchant and the network? We can take a look at our datafeed mapping. But it is possible that the merchant has mapped their prices incorrectly in their datafeed.

The issue with these ShareASale merchants is that SAS has pretty ambiguous fields for their datafeed structure and do not indicate that a specific field be used for a sale price.

For example, fields 8 and 9 in SAS's datafeed are:
Code:
Price
RetailPrice
After looking at many different datafeeds from SAS, we deduced that the price field more accurately reflected the price of the item and that retail price more often represented the sale price. But, because SAS does not indicate a specific field to be used as a sale price, there's no way to know for sure.

I would suggest that instead of editing the prices of all of the products, just set up a conditional statement in your template which reads: if network is shareasale, show sale price, else show regular price.

Or just go with whatever price is lower as the sale price...

Thanks for looking into it...

Store ID:
Website URL: mybachelorette.com
URL to page in question: http://www.mybachelorette.com/store/...1301182520313/

I have an issue similar to this post. Bachelorette.com uses Shareasale for their feed. I noticed that the sale price field for them in datafeedr is always 0. So I downloaded a csv file from shareasale to see what the raw data looked like. From what I can see they are populating both the RetailPrice and Price fields in SAS, but Datafeedr only has the Price field. Can you load both these prices into datafeedr?

Hi

Unfortunately Shareasale has not defined a "Sale Price" field. This has led to ambiguous pricing information by their merchants. For example, some merchants list their lower price in the RetailPrice and a higher price in the Price field while others list their prices in the opposite manner. We've had to make a decision and choose the Price field as the regular price field and disregard the RetailPrice field because it usually doesn't accurately reflect the price the product is being sold for. The prices listed on Datafeedr for Bachelorette.com are the lower of the 2 prices.

Eric
