Using Retail Express you can schedule in advance any price changes to your product selling price, taking the stress out of preparing for sales and price updates. Prices can be increased or decreased by either a dollar ($) or percentage (%) amount, or to a whole value. Prices can even be rounded by whole dollars or a decimal.
The price fields available for modification are as follows:
|Global POS Price||The "POS Price (Inc Tax)" field on the Main tab of a product|
|Global Promotional Price||The "Promotional Price (Inc Tax)" on the Main tab of a product|
|Web Price||Used exclusively for web store integrations, found on the Main Tab|
|RRP||The Recommended Retail Price, used as a reference only. The RRP field allows you to enter a Recommended Retail Price and display it (along with your price) on product labels or web store.|
|Outlet-specific POS Price||The POS Price for an individual Outlet specified on the Pricing tab of a product. When configured, the POS Price field will be shaded in red. When sales are processed at that Outlet the Outlet-specific price will be used before a Global Price.|
|Outlet-specific Promotional Price||The Disc Price Inc price specified on the Pricing tab of a product. When configured, the Disc Price Inc field will be shaded in red. When sales are processed at that Outlet the Outlet-specific promotional price will be used before a Global Price.|
Note: If an Outlet-specific price has been specified, when adding a product to the sale at POS the Outlet-specific price is used before a Global price
If you have a web integration with Retail Express, when the price change takes effect this will update the product's "Last Updated" date, so the price is updated the next time the web store synchronises the product.
When specifying a scheduled price change, you can configure the following options on how the price should be modified:
Displayed only if an Outlet-specific price has been selected, and is used to assign the Outlets where the price change will occur
|Rounding (Whole Dollars)||
|Promotional Price End Date||
Only visible if the Global Promotional Price option has been selected. Used to select the last day the promotion is valid.
Note: The promotion will start at the scheduled price change time
|Promotional Price Date Range||
Only visible if the Outlet Promotional Price field has been selected. Used to enter a Start & End date for the promotion (the End Date being the last day the promotion is valid).
Note: The price and start/end date will be updated at the scheduled price change time, but the promotion will only apply as per the start date
|Schedule Price Change For||The date and time of when the scheduled price change will begin processing. Depending on the number of changes to be processed this may take a little bit of time.|
