If you would like to reduce a few prices to have a sale in your shop then follow these steps, its really simple and looks effective too!

Login to your Administrator area : www.yourdomain.co.uk/administrator

Go to Virtuemart and Products and select the product you would like to reduce. Bear in mind that if the item is a "child variant" that has differing prices then you may want to reduce all sizes/colours/flavours etc and not the "Parent Item" which wouldn't show up any changes in your shop.

If as in this case below all "child" products are the same price and the price of the item is in the "parent" then that is all you need to change.

This what you should see when you go into the product (click to enlarge)
