The official page shows this album is for M3-31.

Not sure where the 1200 price came from, but the one we list for doujin entries is the shop price (including taxes), the event one can be listed in the notes.

Not exactly, either one seems fine for display (but I have a habit to put the shop price for display anyway)

That isn't a thing? I'm pretty sure I've seen a few entries corrected by others to match that but oh well.

In any case, at least listing both is a good idea.

It's a thing for companies/labels that pre-release albums on some events so we still take the general retail date and price but for doujin circles not so much.

Maybe I thought it was a thing in this case too but might had seen enough of other examples to realize it's unstandardized (or I just forgot).

That's a good point, I would have said about this.
These kinds of albums have almost always two princes, event price and online shop price(consignment sale). When I checked other dojin albums, they usually put event price without mentioning another price. So, I changed 1200 to the event price 1000 referring to the official page(http://hatukiyura.sakura.ne.jp/walpurgis/).

Anyway it shows event price 1000 / online price is 1500 (at that time), why 1575?? should add tax on the official page's prices??
Official pages usually never mention whether the two prices are including tax or not. They are usually the prices without tax??
I'm slightly confused how to fix price for my posts.

Here are the examples that I referred.
It seems many people regard the prices on official pages to be tax-included.

Toranoana has this listed for 1500(actually 1493 for some reason)+taxes so I assumed the price on the site is without taxes.
It depends on the circle I guess. For example the lapis moss one you linked is specified without taxes (price with taxes is 1260 http://d-stage.com/shop/detail.php?seq=19595) while for RGOT-0001 toranoana is selling it for 3314+taxes so the price listed on the page (3480) is the correct shop price with taxes.

This is for shop price, the event price I think is always fine as listed.

Personally I always specify shop price in the entry and event price in the notes (same as we do with non-doujin event releases), but as Efendija pointed out it's not a guideline so it's fine as long as both are specified somewhere.

I got the point that any price of the two may be listed.
OMG to add tax, anyway the prices should be fixed on all examples I gave above (and tons of dojin posts)??

I always use event price because all albums are released at the event but not all albums are released in shops.

whatkind, about the display, if you're going with the shop price, tax should be included. As for doujin circles themselves, some will put the shop price with tax on the album pages, some will put without tax (while they may or may not emphasize tax inclusion/absence), some won't mention the shop price at all and in rare cases, some won't put any price.

For your own entries, I think it's fine to choose one price for the display and stick with it. Nobody's going to revise few thousand doujin entries in an attempt to "fix" this.
