Default Showing the lowest price in search and category pages

Store ID: master_store
Website URL: http://pricecheck.exmouth-electricals.co.uk
URL to page in question: http://pricecheck.exmouth-electrical...TRICH+DLZ693BU

Hi Eric, I am still bashing away at a practice website before I take the bull by the horns and go live...
I have a question regarding Showing the lowest price in search and category pages.

I have built a list of products with comparison sets for each. Is there any way that I can show the lowest comparison price in the product detail/search results?

i.e. If you follow the URL: http://pricecheck.exmouth-electrical...TRICH+DLZ693BU you will see a search result for 902.88. If you then click on detail, the lowest price is 579.00.

I assume that I can go back in to the factory and make the lower priced item the master, but as you well know, prices change all the time. Is there any way of showing the best price without having to go back to the factory and change every comparison set?

Regards

Chris

Hi Chris,

I see what you are trying to do but it's not possible. It would require many more SQL queries per page to determine the lowest price for every product on a page.

My only suggestion would be to not display prices on pages such as category pages and search result pages. That way the user will have to view the Product details page to see the price and at that time will see the lowest price.

Eric
