Default Release Price for Doujins

What should be listed in the release price field for a doujin album?

Seems like some clarification on this would be helpful for providing accurate info because there's quite a few combinations. Some doujins are not released at events, others never see shop distributions, and some can be mail-ordered.

For example, I just picked this up from toranoana for 1050 yen, but it was sold at C73 for 500. Same thing with GAMETAL 4, I got that at C73 for 1500 but its shop price is 2310.

Shop prices for doujins can be rather arbitrary. Any price displayed on the album jacket itself will take precedence, though doujin music rarely has a printed price. The recommended practice is to list whatever "official" price is provided by the doujin circle itself, which is almost always the event price.
