If you’ve shopped in Israel or have taken our Level 1 class, you certainly know the word for inexpensive – זוֹל (transliterations here).
 
To say that a price has been reduced, or made more inexpensive, you’d say, הַמְּחִיר הוּזָל. You can also say, הַמְּחִיר הֻפְחַת – the price has been lessened, where הופחת is related to the word for less, פָּחוֹת. 
 
Both הוזל and הופחת are past-tense usages – that the price has been reduced. And both words are in the הופעל verb form, which you can learn how to use here.
 
To say that a price is lower or is less expensive, you’d call the price מוזל or מופחת. These are the present-tense conjugations of the הופעל, but they’re also adjectives. 
 
For example…

How can you get this deal? By tuning in to my Israeli music hour on RustyMike Radio, Wednesday from 12pm-1pm Israel time.
