Using Magento 2.1.5, I am trying to change the Catalog Price Scope option to Website from Global in Stores > Configuration > Catalog > Catalog > Price, but I cannot as it is disabled.

I have got 2 websites, each with one store and one store view.

Can someone help explain why I cannot change this option under the Default Config section for the scope. If I change the scope to anything else, I don't even see the option (which makes sense).

Config Scope

  • I've just upgraded to CE v2.1.6 and the issue is the same there. – Luke Cousins Apr 13 '17 at 11:59
  • Do you have any custom extensions that might touch the catalog module? I didn't find anything that might make the field disabled. – Marius Apr 18 '17 at 12:20
  • Thanks @Marius we have a few extensions installed, but none that I think should affect this. We have the BoostMyShop ERP and Infortis theme, but nothing else and I don't see how these should affect the catalog module. – Luke Cousins Apr 18 '17 at 12:25

Check env.php for config setting overrides. I suspect you might have something like below in your env.php

'system' =>
        'default' =>
                'catalog' =>
                        'price' =>
                                'scope' => 0
  • Thanks, yes, this solved it. It was actually in app/etc/config.local.php and I could change the value there, or comment out the section completely and then make the changes within the admin panel. Really appreciate the help. Thanks again. – Luke Cousins Apr 21 '17 at 9:28

Do you have a staging site available? You can test if can change/add the value to the core_config_data table, that might solve it.

Also maybe this is caused by a third module. You can check all the modules via the command line with php bin/magento module:status and then disable all the third party modules with php bin/magento module:disable module_name and see if this solves your problem.

Both measures should be not be tried on live shops.


Check if Stores > Configuration > General > Single-Store Mode is set to Yes. If so change it to No.

    I don't think this is it. When single store mode is enabled you cannot even see the product price scope dropdown. – Marius Apr 18 '17 at 12:16
  • Thanks, but @Marius is right, it is set to "No". – Luke Cousins Apr 18 '17 at 12:22
  • @Marius true but this was the only element I could find that changes something in this field. – Zefiryn Apr 18 '17 at 12:24
