There are several built-in and optional price fields available for inventory units. This article will break down what they do and how they relate to each other along with examples of how the price block will look on the customer-facing pages when they're filled out.
Default Price Fields
MSRP is a reference-only field that will show the manufacturer's suggested retail price from our database if we have data matching the unit's year / manufacturer / model combination. Since it doesn't appear on the customer-facing pages, a unit with only the MSRP field filled out won't show a price:
Retail Price is the first price that shows up on the inventory pages. Retail Price is connected to the Dealer Retail field on the Inventory Manager page. When only Retail Price has been filled out, the unit will show the retail price above a line with "click for a quote" on it:
Price is the main price field for the unit. If just Price is filled out, the unit will show a large number in the price area. If retail price and price both exist and retail price is higher than the price, the price will show up below the retail price in the price block.
Price text is a price field that allows you to put non-number characters in, so you can have a text message appear in the price block instead of just a number. Price Text and the regular price fields are mutually exclusive so if you put in price text, the other numbers won't appear in the price block.
Monthly Price works differently from the other price fields. You can fill it in under the Monthly Payment Information section in the Inventory Manager page. The platform doesn't do any calculation for this. You'll have to fill in the estimated monthly payment, suggested down payment, interest rate, and term length, and then that information will show up on the unit on the inventory pages.
Add-On Price Fields
These fields are only available by request. If you don't have access to one of them and want it, you'll have to reach out to Technical Support.
Discount Price is a field that lets you put in a lower price than the normal sale price for a unit that won't appear on your site until the user fills out a Get a Quote form. When a unit has a discount price, the Get Financing button next to the price block will be replaced by a Get Instant Price button:
Price Schedule (for rentals)
Price schedule is used as a replacement for a standard price on rental units. This field allows you to set a schedule for renting out a unit, such as $99 per day or $500 per week.
The Price Difference feature adds another line to the standard price block that shows the difference (labelled as "Savings") between the retail price and sale price of the unit. There isn't a field that needs to be filled out for this. If Price Difference has been set up on your inventory pages you'll see the Savings line on any unit that has both Dealer Retail (retail price) and Price filled out in the Inventory Manager page.
