Suppose I have set following rules/prices set in Magento for product (all type)

1) Special price

2) Tier Prices

3) Catalog price rules

4) Group prices

Then which price will be having highest priority and which will be applicable to the product on adding to the cart?

Magento takes the minimal value (lowest price) from the following calculated price variations

  • Product Price
  • Tier Price
  • Group Price (CE1.7+)
  • Special Price
  • Catalog Rule Price

Reference as Marius says above, slide #9 from Ivan Chepurnyi (used to be part of the Magento Core Team so should know the correct answer!)
