Automatic Price levels
You can pre-define discounts or surcharges for specific customers by assigning a Price level to the customer.
A Price Level can have different discounts set for different items. You can set a standard price over-ride or quantity based over-ride for individual Items. You can set discounts for different Items, Stock Categories or for All other Items.
You could have different price levels for Trade, Distributors, Staff etc. Prices can be based on Cost, Retail or one of 3 User defined prices. You can set surcharges by entering a negative percentage (eg: Cost plus 10% for staff)
To create a Price Level select Items then Price Levels.
To allocate a Price Level to a Customer select Contacts and change the Price Level Over-ride under the ‘Sales’ tab
