- A retail flower business may want to offer different prices for bouquets for one-time and repeat customers. You can set up a price list for each type of customer: Gold (which sets prices at a 20% discount, Silver (which sets prices at a 15% discount), Bronze (a 10% discount), and Regular (no discount).
- An automotive repair company may want to offer bodywork services at the regular price, and at a discounted price for discount card holders, or a combo price when purchased in conjunction with another service.
- You can offer discounted prices on goods and services for preferred customers without having to manually calculate discounts when making a sale (but you can still make a manual change if you want).
- Once you assign a customer to a price list, only the customer's price list prices appear when recording items for a sales transaction.
- Assigning an item or service to a price list allows you to quickly update one or more prices based on a percentage or dollar amount, at one time.
- Adding an item to a price list allows you to process an invoice or record a bill quickly by choosing the item from a list.
- You can display and print a price list, or export the list to a variety of formats.
- If you are no longer using an item, but want to retain information about it, you can make the record inactive.
Sage 50 Accounting automatically sets up three price lists for you: regular, preferred, and Web pricing. Each item or service record contains fields which allow you to enter a price for each of these preset price lists, if you want to use them.
Use the price list window to change only the prices for the items that you discount for that specific customer. Then, in the customer record, assign the appropriate price list to each customer.
Note: You cannot use this feature with one-time customers because a price list is linked to a customer record.
