I run two websites on Shopify, both to do with selling goods within the construction industry. One of the products I sell is Lead, many different widths, lengths and thicknesses. The problem with lead being a metal, is the price fluctuates on a monthly basis which requires me to amend my cost price and my selling price.
I haven't been on Shopify long, I was disappointed that I can't do a CSV upload to amend these two prices, or can I? Failing that, is there any apps you could recommend for updating the selling and cost price? I am aware of the bulk editor, however it's far too time consuming.
Thanks in advance!
You can update cost per item and selling price by importing a CSV file. Just make sure to tick the checkbox that says "Override any current products..." when importing the CSV file.
If you are looking for an automated solution, then I can help by creating a custom app. I'm a Shopify app developer and I also used to work as a Solution Architect for a pricing software.
Hi @gazzzzzer ,
I just want to understand more on your price change requirement:
1) Do you change your prices against a specific reference point. And if the reference point prices (in real time basis), you update your prices accordingly.
2) Or you just need to do a %change in your price (i.e increase or decrease) after a certain particular time period.
Accordingly i will be able to help you with some suggestions, from the pricing industry experience that I currently have..
