MAP Logic

For products that allow configuration from the storefront, with prices that depend on a selected option, (such as custom options, or simple products with their own SKUs and stock management), the following logic is implemented:

  • MAP applies to the main price; prices of the options, bundle items, and associated products (which add or subtract from the main price) are displayed normally.
  • If a product does not have a main price, and its price is derived from the prices of associated products (such as with a grouped product), the MAP settings of the associated products are used.

The MAP application logic for other price settings is as follows:

  • If tier pricing is set, the tier price appears according to the Display Actual Price setting.
  • If a special price is set, it is considered to be the actual price for MAP.

In the order management and customer management tools, as well as in the reports sections of the Admin, only the actual price appears.

If a product added to the shopping cart has MSRP specified, the price will not be crossed-out in the mini shopping cart or in the shopping cart.

    Description

    Tier Price

    If tier pricing is set, the tier pricing message is not displayed in the catalog. On the product page a notification is displayed that indicates that the price can be lower when ordering more than a certain quantity, but the discount is displayed in percentages only. For associated products of a grouped product, the discounts are not displayed on the product page.

    The tier price is shown according to the Display Actual Price setting.

    Special Price

    If the Special price is specified, the special price is displayed according to the Display Actual Price setting.
