Reference #1

Q: Is there a way to create pricing by Address instead of by Customer? I would be willing to consider third party solutions if any are available.
A: Omni Price by Rockton might do this.  If I recall, it does pricing based on just about anything.

Reference #2

Q:  Anyone could help me on setting up the special prices. We give a special price for some of the customer on some of the item to override the price level they belong to.

A: You need Omni Price from Rockton Software Otherwise; you would need to set up special price levels for each customer that gets a special price.

Reference #3

Q: We allow our customers’ term discounts on the AR Invoices that we are entering into SOP.  The invoices have many items on them.  However, the customers only get a discount on certain items and not all of them.  Is there a way to set an item so that it does or doesn’t not factor into the Discount Terms calculation (GP 10)?  It is a percent Discount.  Also can there be multiple % discounts based on the payment? <5 days 5%, <10 days 4%
A: There is nothing in GP to handle this scenario.  Nor would this be a trivial customization.  The pricing (discount on some items but not others) might be possible with something like Extended Pricing in GP (probably not) or Omni Price from Rockton Software (probably).

Reference #4

Q: I’ve got a situation in SOP entry where we have to enter Markdown % for each line item and the decimal currency is BHD, 3 decimals. If the Unit Price is BD1.000, markdown is 14.85%, the markdown price is calculated as BD 0.149 rounding off to 3 decimals. However actual markdown should be BD 0.1485. This small difference does matter alot when large quantities involve. Say if we multiply a quantity of 1000000 with 0.1485, the markdown price would be BD148500 whereas with 0.149, the same would be BD 149000 resulting in BD 500 difference which is huge. Can Anyone has any solution on how to take the Markdown price without rounding off or any workaround?
A: I am guessing you actually want to show the markdown?  Not simply change the price depending on who the customer is?  If so, I don’t think even extended pricing can do that, but maybe, I am not as familiar with all the options in there as I am in standard pricing….I would check that first.  But if not, I am fairly certain that Omni Price from Rockton can do this.
