Cost Overview

Updated 1 year ago by Steven Garand

Levels:

  1. Vendor (Manufacturer)
  2. Code Group For Model (Models with a common base code type, ex. Manual or Power)
  3. Code Group For Items (Items with a code within a code group, ex. Power Base Code)
  4. Model
  5. Item

System chooses first discounts and direct cost specified in lowest (Item) to highest (Vendor) level order.
Base% (base discount in percent) refers to the discount off Retail (MSRP) regardless of how you pay the vendor.
Extended% (extended discount in percent) refers to an additional discount on the base cost, if the vendor is payed within some criteria for example within 30 days.
Tertiary% (tertiary discount in percent) refers to an additional discount on the base + extended cost, if the vendor is payed within some extra criteria for example within 10 days.
Set the base, extended, and tertiary percent discounts by how you typically pay the vendor. There is no mechanism for changing these values based on how a particular order was actually paid.
Direct cost only available on the Model and Item levels.
Setting a cost on the Model level and specifying discounts will apply the cost to the base of the model directly (Retail is ignored) and apply the discounts to all other items (Retail is used).
Setting a cost on the Model level and not specifying any discounts will apply the cost to the base of the model directly (Retail is ignored) and set all other items to zero cost (Retail is ignored).
On the Item level, either the discounts or the cost should be set but not both.
Add the least number of discounts on the highest (Vendor best, Item worst) level possible.
Add discounts in the Vendor level for each Vendor.
Only add discounts to the models that have different discounts than the Vendor discounts specified.
Item level discounts and cost should be avoided if possible.
