Hide the pricing of service offerings in a catalog in the Marketplace Portal

Briefly describe your idea
a way to hide pricing information from subscribers

Why is this important, when it would it be used
there are some service offerings in catalog with incomplete pricing and some with complete pricing information. end-user (subscriber) who looks at these is not clear if the values are right and does not choose either offering.

If you were designing the solution, how would  you do it?
Need a property to turn off (or turn on) displaying price

there is in MPP source since a while already hiding logic in for options with 0 Prices. we turn this on by default for all offerings.

so either there are prices -> show

when there is no price - don't show 0

we did not had the requirement so  far to show 0  prices on particular offerings so far.

from our perspective first step woudl be to give an official config to turn of 0 price listing on MPP

It is possible to configure in an offering whether price should be shown to 1) subscriber 2) approver. So, the mentioned requirement is possible currently. What we do need to work on is to not display zero price anywhere. Currently zero price is shown at option level, in each dynamic list values, at the overall offering pricing level. I am currently thinking that we should enhance this to handle it the following way:

- if both the initial and recurring price are zero show the price as 'Free'

- If the initial price is zero, don't display initial price, but display recurrring price (because it is non zero) and vice versa

This should be followed everywhere price is displayed.

Also, I do not think it is required to make this configurable, as I haven't so far heard anyone wanting to show zero price,  it is rather the other way around.

Would like to hear from others about this proposal.
