Overview

This document outlines the files and processes involved in updating and applying pricing to items and/or customers in the COUNTERPOINT ERP system. We will discuss the very basic fundamentals of pricing (stocked vs. non-stocked) down to some very specific utilities that can add significant dollars to your bottom line. This document will also define the various places where parameters need to be set up, the behind-the-scenes updating of prices and some common issues that can occur in the pricing module.

Discounts For Point-Of-Sale

One thing to note in this section is that, discounts take president based on their specificity. So, the hierarchy for what discount will take effect (from highest precedent to lowest) is:

  1. Special (If Price is lower than calculated)
  2. Contract (If billing parameter is set. More in the contracts/specials section)
  3. Customer Discount By Category
  4. Industry Discount By Category
  5. Customer Discount (All Categories)
  6. Industry Discount (All Categories)
  7. List Price (Or alternate list price, if set in billing parameters as described in ‘Billing Parameters’ section)

Separate to all of those though, is Price Point Pricing, which is applied BEFORE any customer specific discounts or specials are applied.
