Pricing Calculation

LIVEARF Pricing configuration

  1. Pre-Defined Pricing 
  2. Custom Pricing 

1. Pre-Defined Pricing:

Pre-defined pricing serves two purposes:  

First, it displays the default pricing for framing features, providing a baseline cost for the selected options. 

Second, it shows the total value of price calculated based on the size combinations with other selected features like matte, frames, frame styles, etc. This pre-defined pricing is utilized by our customers in real-time for their frame purchases.

STEP 1:   

Go to the LIVEARF App.

STEP 2:  

At first, you need to show your Framing features such as Frame color, Frame style, Mat, and others on your website. For that, you have to add your Framing features in LIVEVUE configuration.

Click on the LIVEVUE link at the left side and then Click on the LIVEVUE configuration link within it.

You can present your framing feature using these selection controllers:

1. Preview Enable: 

  • First enable the additional options.
  • Choose the desired Measurement Unit from the dropdown menu (Centimeters/Inches).
  • Tick mark the category for which the pricing is being modified.

  • For the Image Source, select either Product Image (images are available in the store) or Local device image upload (to choose file from the local device).
  • For Virtual Room, select “Yes – Mobile & Web” as both Mobile and Web views are available for the Store Front view. 
  • Select any one of the Frame Selling Options.
  • Allow permission to AI Image Analysis option.

2. Swatch: “Swatch” typically refers to a small sample or representation of the available frame finishes or colors. Users can select different swatches or color options for the frame, allowing them to visualize how different colors would look with their artwork.

3. Rectangle: This selection controller enables users to choose specific framing elements like matting options, frame materials, or finishes from the Rectangle box.

4. ImageUpload: Users have the ability to upload their own images or artwork to see how it would look within the selected frame style.

5. DropDown: This selection controller enables users to choose specific framing elements like matting options, frame materials, or finishes from a dropdown list.

6. Text: Users can input custom text or descriptions related to their framing preferences or requirements, providing additional details or instructions.

7. Radio Button: Users can select from multiple predefined options, such as different frame thicknesses or styles, by clicking on radio buttons to make their choice.

By incorporating these selection controllers, customers can have a more interactive and personalized experience when selecting framing features for their artwork or photographs.
