I take it you mean shared inventory?

I posted a method for custom pricing some time ago. Its in the archives:


This method uses a separate pricing table and allows customer specific, item
specific pricing with a fallback to banded prices and if neither are found
it falls back to the price in the products table.

Interchange has very powerful features when it comes to pricing through the
use of user tags and the CommonAdjust directive in catalog.cfg

Good luck!
