Override Product Special Price in Magento 2

Updated 17 June 2024

Hello Friends!
In this blog, we are going to learn how we can override a product’s special price on the category product page and product page.

To override the special price of a product, please follow the below steps:

1. Declare the plugin: First of all, we will declare the plugin in di.xml file inside app/code/Vendor/CustomModule/etc/ directory.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
  <type name="Magento\Catalog\Model\Product">
    <plugin name="change_product_price" type="Vendor\CustomModule\Plugin\Catalog\Model\Product" 

2. Define the plugin: To override the special price, we will create the ‘after method plugin’ for getSpecialPrice method of \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product class. Here, we have created the Product.php plugin file inside app/code/Vendor/CustomModule/Plugin/Catalog/Model/ directory.

 * Vendor Desc.
 * php version 7.3.*
 * @category  Vendor
 * @package   Vendor_CustomModule
 * @author    Vendor
 * @copyright Vendor (
 * @license
namespace Vendor\CustomModule\Plugin\Catalog\Model;
class Product
     * Get product's special price
     * @param \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $subject
     * @param float $result
     * @return float
    public function afterGetSpecialPrice(
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $subject,
    ) {
        return 30; //special must be less than product price otherwise it will display the product price

3. See the result: Now, we can see the result in the following images. Here, we have created a product with the price $45 and its special price is $40. But after overriding the special price, it will be displayed $30 on the category product page and product details page.

Created product at admin end
Set the special price for the product
Special Price of the product after overriding the original special price on the category product page
Special Price of the product after overriding the original special price on view product page

Hope this will be helpful. Thanks ­čÖé
