The e-commerce.

How can I list 2 prices?


Recommended Posts

I've had a last minute hitch with a site that I'm customising for friends. Advertising is already scheduled to start next week - any help at all will be greatly appreciated.


The site is selling holiday packages on behalf of vendors. The site merchant will charge a fixed $75 deposit through the website with the remainder being paid by the client directly to the vendor.


The problem, that I've only just been made aware of, is the site merchant wants the full price to be advertised in the catalog so that clients can compare and shop within a budget however, they must only be charged the $75 deposit.


How can I do this??? I suggested listing all packages at $75 but highlighting in the details of each package what the full package price is. This was not seen as a good solution because clients will not be able to easily see and compare prices. There may also be issues with clients not realising that the listed price is a deposit only.


As mentioned above, any help at all is greatly appreciated - I don't know how I can do this. I plan on using a PayPal Contribution if this is any help at all - perhaps something can be done at the PayPal end?


Thanks in anticipation...

Here is a test store that I mess around with. I used the special price as a deposit. I have only done it to the single product page so far.




Is this what you are looking for?

Thanks for the quick response - this is certainly an option and is easy to implement. The merchant will probably prefer to keep the Specials function operating as it is intended, but I'll add it to the "options" list. It's the best choice so far!
