Pricing Options

Windward Software allows you to Categorize Different Price Levels for Customers

Price Schedules, Exceptions and Contractor Pricing
Windward Software allows you to set a list price, and up to 99 separate price schedules (price levels.) You can assign a price schedule to each customer, and this will control what level of pricing they will receive on each purchase.

Not all of your customers are the same, and it makes sense to charge them accordingly. You may have retail and walk-in traffic that pay list price, regular customers may get a small discount, and high volume customers such as contractors may get a better discount, while relatives and staff may get a different discount.

For each inventory item, you can decide what type of discount you want to give for each price schedule. To make things easier, you can choose to set a price default for a category of items, but then you can optionally change the schedule for individual items on the inventory record.

 

You can also create price schedule exceptions, where a customer can be on one price level for all purchases, except for one item or category of items, where they may be at a better price level. This can be handy if you have a contractor that specifically purchases a large quantity of a certain type of item, such as paint, and you want to give them a better deal just on those products.

For larger orders, you may negotiate a special price with a contractor. This can be a labor intensive process if you try to track it manually. With Windward Software, setting up a special contract price means they will automatically get the correct price each time they order the item. The special price can be set to expire automatically at the negotiated date.
