The available Price Calculation Methods are shown here.

 

price calc dropdown

 

When adding pricing to stock records, the price calculation method that is first used (the default), will be the one that is already set up in Tools > Options > Stock > Stock Pricing. The default method can be changed for any or all of the stock price levels chosen within this field in the stock record. Regardless of the method selected, enter either a percentage or a dollar value into the relevant price grid field, and the other field will be automatically updated. For example, if the list price (ex) is $200.00, and List – Percent (list price minus a percentage) is chosen as the price calculation method, a value would normally be entered in the Pcnt % column (say 10%), which will then set the dollar amount in the Price Ex. column – in this example $180.00. A whole dollar amount can be entered in the Price Ex. field (say, $175.00) instead, which will automatically set the Pcnt % value.

 

Any calculated Price Ex. amount will round itself to the nearest rounding amount set in Tools > Options > Stock > Stock Pricing.

Info

If a specific customer is nominated in the Price Level grid, each job for that customer which uses that stock will attract the special price and price breaks automatically. To indicate that special prices apply, the job stock grid line on that customer's job will be shown with a green background.

 

Special Prices on Job

 

Within the Price Level grid, select either a minimised or expanded view, by clicking the arrow arrow symbol in the top left corner of that grid. Expanded is the default view each time Jim2 is first opened.

The pricing entered is based upon the base unit measure. By default, when viewing the Transaction tab in the footer of a stock record, the grid will default to show the pricing based on the base selling unit (typically UNIT). In View mode, use the dropdown list located above the pricing grid to switch between the different unit measures to view the selling price of those units instead. This is for viewing purposes only. The selection on a stock record will have no bearing on how it is sold, purchased or reported on.

Shown below is the stock grid view. To enter Tax Free prices, click the ellipsis [...] within the Price Ex. field to access the Calculate Sale Price screen. This must be performed in Edit mode.

Info

Jim2 pre-calculates and stores all pricing in real time as pricing changes. This allows immediate and easy updating of websites, price lists, and bulk price updates, to name just a few.

 

If there is no quantity in stock, but have set up a vendor stock code and cost in the Vendors tab, that will be used for pricing calculations.

 

Min sale pricing

Min Sale Price level allows use of any of the Jim2 pricing calculation methods to set the minimum sale price, instead of just a nominated price. For example, set it to Average PO cost + 5%, thereby ensuring that nobody sells for less than cost plus 5%.
