There are three main sections within the eCommerce area which enable you to manage the pricing, payment, coupons, company points, and email notification options for your ESP Website or Company Store.
- Price Adjust: Modify the pricing information for all products, create set-up charges, and determine how pricing is displayed.
- Coupons and Company Points: Enable coupons, company points, and supplier specials.
- Payment Options: Select the payment capabilities, manage credit card processing, and select email notification options.
The Adjust Product Pricing enables you to set pricing for the products on your site. The default setting is the Supplier's Catalog Price.
There are several options available and you can establish your price adjustment by clicking on the radio button for the option you wish to use, entering the percentage if applicable, clicking on Save and then clicking the Make Changes Live link.
You are able to add or subtract a percentage from the Catalog price by clicking on the radio button and entering a number in the percentage (%) box. In the example below, all products will display with a 10% increase from the supplier’s catalog price.
You are also able to adjust pricing based on the net cost. While visitors to your site will not be able to see the net cost, you are able to have a percentage of the net cost added to the supplier's catalog price. For example: A product has a supplier catalog price (list price) of $7.50 and a net cost of $5.00. If you enter 50 in the "Add % of Net Cost to the Catalog Price" box, the dollar amount calculated from the net cost (50% of $5.00 is $2.50) will be added to the supplier's catalog price. In this example, the $2.50 will be added to the $7.50 for a new list price of $10.00.
Setting a profit margin will automatically adjust the catalog price based on the profit margin you establish. For example, if you wish to maintain a 40% profit margin on every product, ESP Websites will automatically adjust the product pricing to reflect the profit margin.
You also have the option to not show any pricing on your ESP Website or Company Store, but this is not recommended because pricing will display as "QUR" meaning "Quote Upon Request".
Pricing Options and Display
The Pricing Options and Display section enables you to establish a setup charge for all products. Enter a dollar amount in the per Product box and then type a name for the setup charge. When a product is added to the shopping cart, a pop-up window called the Product Option Assistant will open. This window contains the product information and the user can enter a quantity and select additional criteria regarding options for the item prior to checking out. The charge you create in the Pricing Options and Display area will appear above the quantity in the Product Option Assistant.
You are also able to control how many decimal places are displayed on your site. You can show up to 3 decimal places by clicking the "Change max decimal places on pricing" option and then entering the amount in the available box.
Price grid names can be modified as well. The "Price" row will always display on your site, but you are able to customize the caption. For example, instead of "Price" the row could read "You Pay" or "Buyer Cost".
Note: The ability to customize the display names will only be available if you have selected a price adjustment option.
If you have adjusted the price, you can display a row showing any price reductions and modify the name of the row to fit your needs.
There are two additional pricing display options in this section:
- Show pricing codes – This will display the discount code for the item (ex. PQR, 5P).
- Hide prices for products with pricing not confirmed this year – If the supplier has not confirmed pricing within the past year, the pricing for the item will display as QUR.
Coupons, Company Points, and Supplier Specials
The Coupons & Points Options in the eCommerce section enable you to enable coupons, establish company points and manage supplier specials.
To enable Coupons and Company Points, check the corresponding checkbox.
To create and manage coupons, go to Global Features and click on Coupon Manager.
When setting up company points:
- Type a currency name, such as "Discount Points".
- Add a currency symbol, to represent your currency. The currency symbol should be a two letter abbreviation such as "DP".
- Set the points exchange rate, meaning the amount of points that will equal one (1) US dollar. As an example, if you type 100 in the points exchange rate box, the customer will receive a one dollar discount from their order total for every 100 points they entered on your site.
Lastly, click on the Make Changes Live link.

- Fixed Amount (flat rate)
