The Advanced Pricing settings define the conditions required for special pricing that is available for a specific customer group. Advanced Pricing can be applied to simple, virtual, downloadable, and bundle products. To apply discounted pricing to other product types, use a catalog price rule. For more information, see Price Scope.
Advanced pricing data is synchronized with product pages. For example, if you update a tier price quantity, the system updates the value on the product page.
