Vendor Price Breaks

 

1. Open the Product window.

Vendor Price Breaks are set up at the Product Level. You might purchase the same item from multiple Vendors, each of whom have a different pricing structure. This is what Vendor Price Breaks are for!

  1. Open the Product record
  2. Select the Price Breaks tab
  3. Click the + symbol under Vendor Price Breaks to add a new pricing level.

2. Enter the Vendor Price Break info.

After you click the + symbol, you'll see the window below. Enter the price break info as follows:

  • From Date: The first date on which the Price Break is active, in MM/DD/YY format. If the Price Break is not date-sensitive, either leave this field blank or at 00/00/00.
  • To Date: The last date on which the Price Break is active, in MM/DD/YY format. If the Price Break is not date-sensitive, either leave this field blank or at 00/00/00.
  • From Quantity: The minimum order quantity for quantity-level Price Breaks. If your company orders an amount between the From Quantity and the To Quantity amount from your Vendor, then you qualify for the Price Break discount. You can define multiple quantity-level price breaks for each Vendor Price Break (although you want to be sure that the quantities do not overlap). You are not required to use a quantity-level delimiter. If the Price Break is not quantity-sensitive, either leave this field blank or at 0.
  • To Quantity: The maximum order quantity for quantity-level Price Breaks. If your company orders an amount between the From Quantity and the To Quantity amount from your Vendor, then you qualify for the Price Break discount. You can define multiple quantity-level price breaks for each Vendor Price Break (although you want to be sure that the quantities do not overlap). You are not required to use a quantity-level delimiter. If the Price Break is not quantity-sensitive, either leave this field blank or at 0.
  • Vendor Name: The Vendor who you are setting up this Price Break for.
  • Vendor Code: The Code for the Vendor who you are setting up this Price Break for.
  • Unit of Measure: Use this field to indicate which Unit of Measure associated with the Product is assigned this Price Break. This field is required.
