Using the promotions feature, Trade Runner allows you to set different prices for your products on Trade Me, versus the prices on your own store.
To set this up:
- Select "Promotions –-> create new promotion" from the left hand navigation.
If you want the promotion to start immediately, leave the Start date empty. If you want the promotion to apply indefinitely leave the End date empty. Otherwise, enter the dates you want the promotion to be applied.
Apply a discount:
Discount prices by a fixed % (e.g decrease all prices by 10%)
Discount prices by a fixed $ amount (e.g decrease all prices by $10)
Set all prices to one fixed price
Use the Fixed dollar amount (e.g all products could be set for one price of $15)
Increase the price:
You can also use this to increase the price of your products on Trade Me - simply put a – (negative) before the number
e.g to add 10% to all prices put -10 in the percentage field.
e.g to add $10 to all prices put -10 in the Dollar discount field.
To apply the promotion to all products
If you want to apply the promotion to all products tick the box for "Apply to all products listed for sale" under the Products heading in the Promotion
To apply the promotion to specific products
Enter the SKU of those products the promotion applies to.
IMPORTANT: Use the SKU from Trade Runner as this is the unique identifier of products and this is not always the same as your website SKU.
You can find it by going to 'Inventory - All Products'
Of click through to the full information on the product page:
Activating the promotion:
Once you have created the promotion, go to ‘All Promotions’ and click ‘Apply Active Promotions’ – this will push the changes through to Trade Me.
In the 'Inventory - All products' section you will be able to see what the the price will be on Trade Me when a promotion has been applied.
- Using this feature will not change the prices on your eCommerce store.
- You cannot apply multiple promotions to the same sku.
- If your RRP is greater than the Sale Price, you MUST tick "If a product is already on sale would you like to include it in this promotion?" otherwise the promotion price will not be applied.
