After clicking on the calculator icon, a pop-up page will appear and you can use the designed calculator to inline edit product price.

- Operator Box: You can select +, -, RP- (based on Regular Price displayed only for editing sale price), SP+ (based on sale price displayed only for editing regular price).
|Editing Regular Price||Editing Sale Price|
- Textbox: You can type a number or using Up/Down button to increase or decrease the number.
- Type of number: You can select n (Number) or % (Number%) from the dropdown list.
- Round box: You can select the round number from the dropdown list
Now let’s see how we can inline edit the prices of our filtered product by using this calculator.
Increasing the sale price using price calculator
We want to increase the sale price of “Woocommerce Plugin” by 7.
As you can see in the below picture, the existing sale price of this product is 7.
To increase this price by 7, we selected + from the operator box, then typed “7” in the textbox and chose “n” from the type of the number and finally we set the calculator to round our calculated number by .99.
So we expect that the final price displayed as 0.99 according to the below calculation:
Current Sale Price (7) + the entered number (7) = 14 rounded by 0.99=0.99
By clicking on applying changes, you can see the result:
Decreasing the sale price based on regular price
To decrease the sale price of “Woocommerce” product by 2 based on product price, we selected “rp-“ from the calculator operator box and typed “2” in the text box. Then we chose “n” as the “Number” without any rounding:
We expect to see the below result:
Current Regular Price of Woocommerce (15) – Our entered number (2) = 13 (Without rounding)
As shown below, our calculator have done this calculation less than a second successfully:
Decreasing sale price
Now, let’s look at another example of decreasing the sale price of “Woocommerce” product by 3.
Again, we clicked on “Calculator” Icon on the sale price cell of “Woocommerce” in the product table and set the conditions as below:
-Operator Box: –
– Textbox: 3
– Type: n
We expect to see the sale price as:
Current sale Price (13) – our entered number (3)= 10 (Round by 0.05)=10.05
By clicking on “Apply Changes”, The magic has happened and you can see the correct result below:
Increasing Regular Price based on Sale Price
Now, consider that the regular price of “Woocommerce” product must be 20% more than sale price which means at the end the regular price must be:
Current Sale Price (10.05) + (Current Sale Price (10.5)*20%) = 10.05 + 10.05*20/100 = 12.10 (Rounded by 0.10)
To make our plugin calculate this price for you, you can easily follow below steps:
– Click on the “Calculator” icon in the regular price column of “Woocommerce”
– Choose “SP+” from operator box
– Enter “20” in the text box
– Select “%” from value type box
– Choose “10” as rounding condition
The result displayed as we expected in the Regular Price cell of “Woocommerce”:
