In this first session, ManagementOne's Director of Marketing and Sales, Paul Erickson, shares pricing psychology and strategies that retailers should consider to determine price, rather than simply applying a markup formula based only on item cost.

With the issue of pricing consistency across physical and digital channels hotly debated among retail strategists and consumers alike, determining smart pricing strategies is a top priority for many retailers.

For all our Retail Pro users out there, here's a quick refresher on efficiently managing price changes in Retail Pro.
