NOTE: On the very top of the screen in the Price List Details section, you will need to specify a Price List Name, Promotion Period, and a Pricing Lock Method to be able to save the list.
5. To make the same changes to multiple products on the list, you can check off the boxes for those products on the left-most side of the screen. Once you’ve selected a set of products to update you can go into the Price Changes section and specify the adjustment. Click Adjust to apply the changes and click Save or Save & New to finish creating/saving the list.
6. To apply the price list to customers and products, go to Products > Global Pricing > Global Pricing and Promotions tab

NOTE: If your price list does not appear on the drop down, closing and reopening the screen should get it to appear.
8. If you want to remove the pricing that has been set, you can do that on the bottom of the same screen.

Importing Price Lists

COLUMNS FOR IMPORT:
SKU - AdvancePro SKU
ProductName - Name of product

MINIMUM COLUMNS REQUIRED FOR IMPORT:
- One of the following: Price, Discount, Margin, Markup
NOTE: If you want to exclude date ranges on the import you need to remove those columns from the import file. This will make it so the price list will never expire.
2. In AdvancePro Go to Products > Global Pricing. The price list import section can be found at the bottom of the Product Pricing tab. You have the option to import either 4th level price list or a 3rd level price list. There is also a checkbox beside the buttons which needs to be checked if updating an existing price list.
3. After running the import, a report will be generated outlining the status of each line-item on the price list.
4. To check the price list go Products > Global Pricing > All Price Lists tab. The price list should now be visible on this screen and if not you can click the search button to refresh the list.
Editing/Saving 3rd and 5th Level Pricing as a Price List
You also have the ability to edit/save your 3rd and 5th level pricing rules to a 4th level price list. If you have 3rd or 5th level pricing set, you will be able to view a list of those products and their price information with respect to their price level rules.
1. Go to Products > Global Pricing > All Price Lists tab > Click Create Price List
On the bottom-left area of the screen there are two drop down boxes available:
Price Level - Changes the view of the screen depending on the price level selected.
CustomerName/PriceList - Allows you to select a customer if you are editing a 3rd or 5th level price list otherwise you select a price list if 4th level is selected
2. Select a Price Level > Customer > Click Edit Price List.
If you have any 3rd or 5th level pricing set for any products for the selected customer, they will appear on the list and you can modify them as needed. 3rd and 5th level rules can be updated on this screen instead of having to do it through the other methods. This allows for more flexibility and control in the event particular products need to be adjusted.
3. Once all changes have been made, click either Save to the apply the update for the pricing rule or Save as 4th Level to convert it. This will NOT remove the pricing rule, it just converts it into a price list that can be saved and applied as needed.
If you have chosen to convert it to a 4th level price list then you will be taken back to the Create Price List screen where you will need to enter a name in order to be able to save the list.
