            Customer Pricing in AdvancePro 11.4

            In 11.4 we’ve revamped the AdvancePro pricing features to increase the efficiency and functionality of setting up pricing rules. In this version of the software, we now have 5 levels of pricing. They are as follows:

             

            Level 1 - Default sale price

             

            Level 2 - Across-the-board pricing which allows a fixed markup/discount on all products to be set for a customer or customer group

             

            Level 3 - Pricing per product and per customer

             

            Level 4 - Price lists which allow a set of products and their pricing rules to be applied to a customer or customer group

             

            Level 5 - Promotional pricing which you can apply a markup/discount across customer groups and product categories for a set period of time


            NOTE:  Price levels can take precedence over each other depending on the level with the 5th being the highest. Other pricing rules will be overridden if a higher level pricing rule has been set on top of it



            Customer Groups in 11.4


            Customer groups have changed slightly in the 11.4 release. There is now the option to reassign the default customer in the customer group. This will allow you to be able to clearly identify which customer’s pricing rules are to be inherited as well as change the default customer on the fly.


            In AdvancePro if you look under Customers > Customer Groups - There is a new section called Create Customer Pricing. In this section, you can set the Default “Price” Customer (DPC) after adding customers to the selected group. There are also two checkboxes right underneath the default customer. The first checkbox allows for customers to immediately inherit the pricing rules of the default customer as they are added to the group. The second checkbox allows you to apply/reapply the default customer’s pricing rules to the other customers in that group.

            2nd level pricing can be applied in two ways either through the Global Pricing screen or in the customer edit screen

            Add % to current discount/markup - This allows you to stack discount/markup percentage on top of an existing one

            3. Now you may select the adjustment type of either a markup or discount and enter the percentage value to adjust. Click Add Pricing to update


            You also have the following options:


            Customer SKU - This allows you to create another SKU identifier for a product which can be used to search the item in AdvancePro.
