How do I handle multiple prices for a product

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I work for a wine storage facility that allows the owners of wine in storage to sell their wine on our web site. Products in our system are identified by unique wine ids that vary according to attributes like brand, variety, wine name, and vintage. So all products with the same id are identical, however they may vary by condition, ie things like damaged label, mouldy corks, etc.

 

Owners set their own price and so we can have multiple listings for the same product with varying prices.

 

I understand that I can't have multiple prices for a given product so how should I handle this product id/price variation?

 

Also we list all wine as new, even though it may be years, or even decades old, and may even have had multiple owners. It's definitely not "used" ;-)

 

Is this the correct approach?

a website with multiple individual sellers under the same domain
may submit items as a marketplace; and if so, must follow all the
marketplace rules and policies -- e.g. each seller's items would be
(a feed) under a sub-account under the main multi-client account.

as to the condition attribute, items where the original packaging
has been opened or is missing must be submitted as used --
regardless of any site or product related condition granularity;

more generally, items that are not brand-new must be submitted as
used or is otherwise a policy violation and grounds for a disapproval
or suspension from the program, at any time.

google sets the rules and policies for all attributes -- such as condition.

regardless, the same item with different conditions
must be submitted using unique id values, with a
separate link landing-page and price.

global-trade-data is based on the type of item and if valid
global-trade data exists -- was assigned by the manufacturer,
to the exact item being sold, at the time of the item was
manufactured (produced) -- not the item's age or condition.

if the required, valid, global-trade-data does not exist then,
the items must be submitted with an identifier_exists of FALSE
and brand, mpn, and gtin cannot be submitted, for that item.

google has a strict one listing per item (per seller) policy.

As far as I know, you will have to submit the one price, and the link needs to be for that product with that price.

But I think you can get away with it submitting the older wines as collectibles. Which means you can list all of them. But i'm not 100% sure.

We will see what other people have to say. I'm just assuming.
