BIC/EDItEUR Workshop: Pricing in ONIX

Prices are one of the key data types in ONIX – and as a commercial standard that aims to enable automation of e-commerce, getting prices right and ensuring they are interpreted correctly by recipients is critical. And yet as books are increasingly sold into more complex markets, or with more complex pricing models, publishers and distributors are not always clear on what can be transmitted, what are the best practices, or how their existing price information is interpreted.

This BIC Workshop will discuss best practice for communicating pricing details in ONIX records. It will outline the rationale for getting your metadata right, the specification to follow and how to carry out the work correctly. The Workshop will also include an open discussion about the issues, errors and/or omissions experienced by the delegates, examples of which should be brought to the workshop (see Delegate Preparation Work, below). The Workshop will consider both simple, ‘traditional’ print pricing and more complex eBook models and advanced use cases, e.g. price conditions and price constraints, tax details, discounts etc. using the latest new features of ONIX 3.0.3. Depending on the delegates in attendance, the Workshop may also discuss what application developers can do to support the best practice.

This workshop will be of interest and relevance to users of both ONIX 2.1 and ONIX 3.0, and to publishers and retailers, data intermediaries and system vendors.
