Purchase level break price variances

3EX.NET Offers a wide range of Product Pricing mechanisms which will ensure that even the most complex of pricing requirements can be accommodated. Level Break Price Variances, can be used where you receive a certain discount from suppliers when you buy in bulk.

It is often possible to achieve different cost pricing from a particular supplier or group of suppliers, depending on certain criteria on the Purchase Order. It is also occasionally possible to obtain a discount on items by purchasing in bulk. This method of pricing and price discounting can be achieved by using the Price Variance system.

Variances can be created for specific currencies and can be set to apply between certain date ranges.
