Magento 2 functionality gives you the possibility to easily configure prices for your promotions providing different options based on customer groups, attributes, quantities etc. Changes to the price can be made directly in the product card for a particular product or to all the products in your store meeting the specified conditions.
1. Original price and price scope.
Original price is a base (regular) price of a product which is used to calculate discounts. To change the original price go to CATALOG – PRODUCTS in your admin panel.
Choose a necessary product in the list and click on it. You may find original price of the product in the field PRICE in the opened card.
Under the name of the field you will see the scope of the price. By default it is GLOBAL which means that if you have several stores (websites) the same price will be shown in all of them. If you need to have different original prices in different websites it is necessary to change the price scope. To do it go to STORES – CONFIGURATION in your admin panel.
