How to use compare at price effectively in Shopify?
What does compare at price mean?
On Shopify stores, compare at price is the product’s original price that shows up on a product’s listing when its on sale. You can see it crossed out next to its discounted price. It is a data field on every product in Shopify, which helps you show the gap between the original price of a product and its sales price in an attractive way.
If you want to bulk-edit Compare at prices, from the Shopify Home page, the process is:
- Go to Products
- Select all the products that you want to edit at the same time.
- Above the table containing all your products,
- Click “Edit Products”.
You’ll be shown the Bulk Editor page, where the products you selected earlier can now have all their Compare at prices edited one by one, in one table.
