Custom price levels

Not available in AccountRight Basics

You can set up different prices for your items based on who's buying and how much they're buying. This is sometimes called price levels or quantity breaks.

For example, a level A customer might pay $140 for a single quantity of an item, but if they purchase five units of that item, they'll only have to pay $100 for each.

Volume discount

The volume in the Volume Discount % field in the Selling Details tab of a customer’s card will apply in addition to the quantity-break price levels you set up.

To set custom pricing levels, you can give each level a name and then specify a price for each level for each quantity break. Then simply assign a price level to each customer.
