actual price


Explanation:
PVP simply means the IVA and any other potential nasty surprises are already figured in and when you get your shiny new purchase to the register you will fork out what the tag says.

Precio de venta al público


Explanation:
I don't know whether it's recommended or not. What I do know is that the PVP is what you actually end up paying. PVP may or may not include IVA (VAT) but usually does. Cheers :)

Note


Explanation:
I agree with "angolano" - but note the recommended retail price is not necessarily the price you pay. In fact it is usually used as a price to quote before adding "Our price however is..."

So Computer worth $1000 according to the PVP is offered at $750 as a great bargain. PVPs are inevitably undercut!

Retail Price


Explanation:
What it is in fact is the (final) price to the public, and if this is knocked down, as happens in sales, then it's the price that must be shown alongside the reduced price.

I wouldn't risk calling it RRP, because the laws in respect of pricing controls may vary from country to country, so it might be better to translate it more literally:

Retail price

I agree with Ailish


Explanation:
Here in Spain, the PVP is in many cases the price you end up paying for a product, so it might be best to translate it as retail price (NOT suggested or recommended retail price, because in that case they usually say "PVP recomendado").
