Important Note

This field accepts numeric values using “.” (english standard) as the decimal point. Even if your locality normally uses “,” as the separator between whole numbers and fractional amounts, you must use a “.” as your separator when entering your price. On output CartThrob can convert this decimal point to any other separator, but on input, english standard decimals are required.
