I am working on a connector module for a custom CMS system into Magento. I am using the following code to pull the products from a given category.

$category = Mage::getModel('catalog/category')->load($catID);
$collection = $category->getProductCollection();
$products = $collection->getItems();

foreach ($products as $product) {...}

The problem is when I execute $product->getPrice() I get nothing back. Any help is appreciated.

you are selecting only these 3 attributes(name,description,image) then how do you expect price from the product collection. kindly add price attribute to your select.


and then use

     //returns price which is not a final one.

    If you need the final or minimal price, you can add those using addMinimalPrice and addFinalPrice on the collection, as is done by Mage_Catalog_Model_Layer::prepareProductCollection
