This page gives an overview of the Pricing microservice, including core features, for the Infosys Equinox platform.

Overview

The Pricing microservice (“Pricing”) allows a pricing manager to create and manage multiple price lists, with each price list having its own currency and its own individual optional price types. The Pricing microservice is independent of the Catalog microservice, enabling a client to use Infosys Equinox’s Catalog microservice or an alternative third-party catalog service of their choice. Infosys Equinox’s Pricing microservice provides pricing for stock keeping units (SKUs), each of which can have a default price (evergreen price) as well as pricing based on quantity and/or a schedule. Pricing managers can easily import pricing data into the Pricing service using a very simple spreadsheet import template. Infosys Equinox Pricing utilizes a rigorous project-based approval workflow based on assigned roles and permissions with a complete audit trail and full versioning to ensure that only approved prices are available to the consumer user.

As with all microservices in the Infosys Equinox solution, individual price lists are associated to a store managed by the Store microservice. Stores often serve multiple regions and store association permits the Pricing manager to define a price list for each region.

Note: To preserve data integrity, Store association only allows the Pricing manager to choose price lists within the same collection.

See the Pricing glossary for definitions of some key Pricing microservice terms.
