The price field determines how much a specific product variant will cost before shipping, discounts and taxes are applied. You can use the Ablestar Bulk Product Editor to modify variant prices in bulk


  • The 'price' field is the amount that the product variant is selling for. If the compare price is greater than the price, it implies that the product is on sale.
  • Shopify does not accept negative values for a price. You can use discounts instead to reduce the price of an order.
  • If you edit the prices with the Bulk Editor but they suddenly switch back, it's likely that another app is automatically resetting the prices.
  • The way the prices are displayed on your store's website depend on your theme and currency settings
  • At the end of 2020 Shopify temporarily announced that you could no longer have a price that was greater than the compare at price. They reversed this policy in January 2021.

In-App Edits

When you edit the price field you can modify the Compare at Price field at the same time in the following ways:

  • Set the Compare at Price to the current price value. You can use this to create sales if you decrease the price value by 10% and set the Compare at Price to hold the original value of the price
  • Set the Compare at Price to a fix value, for example $10.

Spreadsheet Edits

The app will use the following rules to update a price from a given cell in a spreadsheet:
  • Text around the numbers, like currency names or symbols, are removed
  • The comma is treated as a thousands separator
  • The period is interpreted as the decimal separator

Please contact us if you are having difficulties with the app extracting the correct number for a price.
