Name - Assign a unique name to the base price, this will only be used in the backend.
Base Amount - The base amount is the conversion factor for the base price, this should be identical to the number in the name. e.g. "100 g" results in a base amount of 100.
Designation %s Here you can enter the label for the basic price. e.g. "%s per 100 g". `%s` is a placeholder and displays the calculated base price including the currency selected in the shop configuration.
