Multi-store pricing is available if your account has multiple locations. With multi-store pricing, you can use pricing levels to automatically sell items at a different price per location or customer type. To configure your multi-store pricing, you can do the following:
- Create a pricing level for each location
- Set item prices for each pricing level
- Assign a pricing level to each location
- Assign a pricing level to a customer type
- Reset a pricing level
Create a pricing level
Your Lightspeed Retail account has two pricing levels: default and MSRP. We recommend that you create new pricing levels for your multi-store locations. For example, if you have a location in Brooklyn and another in Manhattan, you should create a pricing level for each location.
- From the main menu, click Settings > Pricing Levels > + New Pricing Level.
- Enter a descriptive Pricing Level Name. For easy identification, you can name the pricing level based on the location, such as Brooklyn.
- Select an Existing Pricing Level from which to copy the item price. For example, if you select the Default pricing level, the individual item prices for the new pricing level will match the item’s Default price. You can modify the individual item prices for the new pricing level later in the item details.
- Click Create Pricing Level.
Set the item price for a pricing level
You can set a different item price for each location's pricing level.
- From the main menu, click Inventory > Item Search.
- Search for the item you want to assign the new pricing level to.
- In the Pricing area, click the Price field corresponding to the pricing level that you want to edit and enter the price.
- Click Save Changes.
Assign a pricing level to a location
When a pricing level is assigned to a location, items you add to a sale will be listed at the price set in the pricing level.
- From the main menu, click Settings > Location.
- Click the Customize next to the location you want to assign a pricing level to.
- Click the Settings submenu.
- From the Pricing Level submenu, select a pricing level.
- Click Save Changes.
Assign a pricing level to a customer type
Price rules can be used to assign pricing levels to a customer type.
- From the main menu, click Settings > Price Rules and click New Price Rule.
- Give the price rule a name, and select the affected customer type.
- In the Type menu, select the pricing level for these customers.
- Configure other filters as needed and click Save Changes.
Resetting a pricing level
You can reset a pricing level. For example, if you have a multi-store account and during the summer you have a pop-up shop that sells handmade products at craft shows, you use a Craft Show pricing level for the pop-up shop. When the craft show season is over, you revert the prices of the pop-up shop to your brick-and-mortar store pricing level, which is the Default pricing level. This quickly changes the prices of all of the affected products. To do so:
- From the main menu, click Settings > Pricing Levels.
- Select the pricing level you want to work with.
- Click Reset Price Level and select the pricing level whose prices you want to use.
