Supplier Guide - Creating a Price List in Product Manager


Price Lists are used to link your Items to an Agreement and provide your customers with specific prices. Price Lists can be specific to each customer or re-used many times. A Price List contains the item ID with a unit of measure, increment, price, quantity, price breaks (optional) and currency. There are two ways of creating a Price List:

  1. XML Upload Product Manager allows you to upload an XML file with item content and price information. This creates the items in your Item Directory and a Price List based on the data in the file.

Note: that when you upload a Price List the system will create a name for it using XML filename, and the name cannot be changed once it has been uploaded. To ensure your Price List has a meaningful name in the system, ensure you name your file appropriately. See the Product Manager Upload guide for more information on how to create XML content and upload this to Product Manager.
