Managing Products: The General Tab

This tab allows you to set wholesale prices, sales prices, minimum pricing, VAT and ingredients for your products.

Setting Wholesale Prices

Box name: Regular price (£ / kg)

Format: #,##0.00 Do not add currency (“£”)

This box sets the standard price for a product. It is the price the Buyer will see against your product.

Notes:

  1. The price is for an outer not an individual item. E.g. if you sell jam jars in boxes of six jars, the price entered should be for six jars. Delishops will automatically calculate the unit price (one jar) and display it against the product
  2. Prices should be net of VAT
  3. This is not the Retailer price, Recommended Retail Price or Recommended Sales prices. It is the price paid by a Wholesale Buyer
  4. To change the number of units in a pack or outer, click on the Pack Size tab.

Setting Sales Prices

Box name: Sale price (£ / kg)

Format: #,##0.00 Do not add currency (“£”)

This box allows you to set an on-sale or temporary promotional price for a product. It is the price the Buyer will see against your product. It will be shown in red, with the Regular price crossed out for emphasis.

Leave bank if there is no promotional price.

Notes:

  1. You can allocate a specific period to the promotion by clicking on the Schedule button. Here you can allocate from-to dates to specify a limited promotional period
  2. The price is for an outer not an individual item. E.g. if you sell jam jars in boxes of six jars, the price entered should be for six jars. Delishops will automatically calculate the unit price (one jar) and display it against the product
  3. Prices should be net of VAT
  4. This is not the Retailer price, Recommended Retail Price or Recommended Sales prices. It is the price paid by a Wholesale Buyer
  5. To change the number of units in a pack or outer, click on the Pack Size tab.

Minimum Pricing

Box name: Minimum Price (£)

Format: #,##0.00 Do not add currency (“£”)

Minimum price is a lock to ensure no product can be sold for lower than a specific value.

In most cases it is appropriate to leave it blank.

VAT

Box names:

  • Tax status drop down menu
  • Tax class drop down menu

This section sets the VAT rate applicable to your product.

Notes:

  1. For foods and drinks that are zero rated set to: Tax status Taxable; Tax Class Zero rated
  2. For foods and drinks that are standard rated set to: Tax status Taxable; Tax Class 20
  3. For exempt products: Tax status None; Tax Class Zero rated.

If you have products rated at another rate (not 20%), contact Delishops Support.

Ingredients

Put your ingredients here as a comma separated list. Use the same guidelines as per Trading Standards labelling rules. Key rules to take into account are:

  • Ingredients should be listed in order of volume, with the largest constituent first
  • If the name of an ingredient is within the name of the product, that ingredient should have a percentage against it.

Allergens do not need to be highlighted in this section as they are covered by the Attributes and Filters tab.

FAQs Ingredients:

  1. Do I have to include an ingredients list? No. As a B2B transaction, there is no requirement to include ingredients. However, it is valuable to show your products ingredients to trade buyers as some Buyers are ingredient sensitive. In addition, this data may be used by your customers to talk to their customers, so you are helping your customers by publishing it here for reference
  2. What should I put here if there are a number of products within this product, for example a selection pack of pies? You have three options: 1) leave this section blank, 2) show the ingredients for all products here but listed separately and headed by each product name, 3) if you are selling the products on Delishops separately, reference those products here, e.g. For ingredients, see Mrs Miggins Pork pie, Mrs Miggins Game pie and Mrs Miggins Egg pie separately listed on Delishops.
