Here’s my test page:
Note that there’s no base price listed for the base item (‘AAC’ format). The incremental amounts for the optional formats are present as expected.
Ideally, I’d like to just list the net price for each variation, but according to your page on Variation Control, this is not possible – correct?
There IS an amount entered in the ‘product price’ field in the ‘Manage Products’ page, and the shortcode I’m using is:
I do not want any additional styling (border, thumbnail image, etc) to the display.
Thanks!April 3, 2012 at 10:38 pm #43718
The base price should display for the first variation item if you’ve properly entered your code in the variation field.
Can you please paste the code you used in the variation control field.April 4, 2012 at 12:16 am #43719
Here’s the code in the field labeled ‘digital product variation’. (I don’t see a field labeled ‘variation control’.)

My apologies – I meant “Digital Product Variation” field.
Anyway, the reason you are not seeing the price for the first selection is because you haven’t entered a price in the variation code for AAC.
Remember that variation usually means something in addition to the main price.
eStore will not insert the product price field value into the variation field.
The confusion here is that you are not displaying the basic product price with the add to cart button so people won’t know the basic price of the AAC selection.
So I would suggest that you should put price somewhere near the add to cart button.April 4, 2012 at 1:54 am #43721
Sorry – I wasn’t entirely clear. The AAC variation will be sold at the basic price. That’s why I didn’t include a price for it in the variation code.
What’s the simplest way to add the basic price? I’m still trying to sort out the display options (both the standard and the ‘extra shortcodes’), and I’m getting a bit of ‘option overload’…

Since you’re using the [wp_eStore_add_to_cart id=5] shortcode, this will only display the button with the variation dropdown box.
You can very easily put some text around it manually on your page highlighting the price.
Otherwise check out the other display options:
