  • Code – A unique code for the UOM. The first code for new items defaults from a Company Setting.
  • Description – Optional text for the UOM.

Level – There are a total of 20 pricing levels that can be assigned to customers or sales orders, and each level can have its own sell price.

Sell Price – The amount can be entered as a price and it will calculate margin, or it can be entered as a margin and it will calculate price. If the customer / order has a level that doesn’t have a respective sell price set here, then the level 1 price will be used on the sales order.

Margin (Curr / Avg) – There are two sales margin columns, one based on the current cost and one based on the average cost. These are calculated only when the price level is first defined and do not get updated when the cost changes. They are only used to assist in determining the level prices.

Currency – Sell levels can be set up in Edit / Currencies to be assigned to a certain currency. For sales orders with a customer using that currency, items have this level price available as the order unit price, and may be the default value depending on other settings like price matrix record. If a currency is not assigned to the price levels, customers using this currency will have a unit price calculated from the currency exchange rate and the level sell price.

Sell Price (UOM) – When a unit of measure different than the stocking unit is highlighted, an additional column is revealed that displays the unit price for each level, calculated from the UOM conversion factor, displayed in the Price Factor field above the levels. You can modify the sell price here, such as to give a price discount if a larger unit is ordered.
