Communicating Price Details in ONIX Workshop

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 explore the broad range of types of price and business model, and discuss best practice for communicating these pricing details in ONIX records. It will outline the rationale for getting this metadata right, the specification to follow and discuss what variations the standards may need to include in the future. The Workshop will also include an open discussion about the issues, errors and/or omissions experienced by the delegates with current metadata, 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.
