Price History for HikaShop
Since May 28, 2022, the European directive called Omnibus has entered into force. This directive toughens the penalties applicable to misleading promotions, false reviews and abusive sales in the EU. The aim is to strengthen consumer protection.
One of the main points online ecommerce websites need to follow is to provide the lowest price in the last 30 days for products so that customers don't see "fake sales" where the website displays the price as being discounted while it is only the normal price masked as a discount to incite the users to purchase. This plugin will allow you to follow this new legislation by displaying on the product page the lowest price in the past 30 days. This plugin will also provide a history of the price changes in the backend.
Save public prices of the products (before reduction) and display prices in the product edit form in the backend
Displayed the lowest price observed in the last 30 days on the product page in the frontend
