Special Pricing Overview

The Special Pricing module is an optional module that is used to create pricing exceptions to the standard EBMS pricing. The common pricing method used to apply specific pricing for a customer is to use the multiple Price Level setting within the general tab of the customer record. Review Default Pricing and Price Levels section for more details on this setting.

The Special Pricing module is used to make exceptions to the price level applied to each customer. The following price exceptions can be applied to a sale based on various criteria:

  1. Negotiated Pricing: The price for one or more items can be uniquely set for a customer or a group of customers. Another price level should be created if the pricing for the entire catalog is unique. The Special Pricing module allows the user to set negotiated exceptions to a price level. Review the Special Pricing for Customers section for more details.

  2. Promotional Pricing: Entering promotional pricing for a product or group of products based on a range of dates. Example: The hardware product group may be discounted at 10% for the month of March. Review the Promotional Prices based on Date section for more details on promotional pricing.

  3. Bracketed Pricing: A product or group of products is discounted if the customer purchases a volume of the product on a single line of the invoice. Example: John Doe receives a discounted price if he buys more than 50 rakes on a single invoice or if John purchases over $1000 of rakes on the same invoice. Review the Volume Discounts and Bracketed Pricing section for more details on bracketed pricing.

  4. Multiple Price levels for a Customer: A price level may be set for a specific customer for all items or a specific group of products. Example: A customer (John Doe) may get the wholesale level a pricing for everything but the garden supplies group. John Doe will be given the wholesale level B for the garden supplies because of the volume of product purchased by John Doe. Review the Special Pricing for Customers section for more details on customer special pricing.

The order of the special pricing records may effect which exception takes precedence when multiple exceptions apply. Review Prioritizing Special Pricing section for more details.

Review the Viewing Special Pricing within a Sales Order or Proposal section to determine how a price on a sales order or quote was calculated.

The standard price level feature of EBMS should be used as the main pricing structure for a customer. Review the Inventory Pricing Overview section to review the standard pricing options before implementing the special pricing features in this section. The Special Pricing module is an optional module. Contact an EBMS software representative for purchase information if the optional module is required.
