I am creating a fixtures yaml file to create a sample product for my unit tests - using the EcomDev phpunit plugin for Magento.

The issue is that I need to set store specific values for price. I have managed to get this working fine for website specific values like so:

    - entity_id: 1
      type_id: simple
      sku: book
      name: Book
      short_description: Book
      description: Book
      url_key: book
      price: 12.99
      tax_class_id: 2
      status: 1
        uk: # this is the website code
          price: 12.99

However when I try with stores instead of websites at the bottom, the store specific values are not being set:

  artista_uk: # this store does exist in the database
    price: 16.99

The way I have tested this is by viewing the catalog_product_entity_decimal table and seeing if a price value appears next to the relevant store id.

The documentation can be found here:
Which does say you can interchange websites with stores

Any ideas would be great.

    Are you sure that artista_uk is code of store not store_group? This should work

I don't think you can accomplish to do that because price in Magento is limited to global or website scope.

As far as I know, no different prices can be set on same product for different store views belonging to same website.

Kind regards

  • Additionally you have to set the config value to use the website scope, if you don't do this, the website price is ignored! See \Mage_Catalog_Model_Product_Attribute_Backend_Price::setScope Commented Feb 12, 2014 at 22:57
  • To Fabian's point, you can also set this inside the fixture: config: default/catalog/price/scope: 1 # Set price scope to website Commented Nov 12, 2014 at 17:39
