Dynamic Pricing

Pricing Tiers are used to structure the price adjustment of a quotation. Dynamic Pricing allows you to adjust the ENTIRE quote value in one simple move. You must decide on how much limit you are willing to allow with the dyanmic pricing tool.

    1. $ Limit
    2. % Limit
      1. Please Note: You are required to put a dollar ($) and percentage (%) limit. A 10% increase on a $1,000 quote, is not much, however a 50% increase on $10,000 is a lot more. The dollar ($) limit helps to protect your business from ridiculous increases
  6. Set the MAXIMUM limit decrease allowed for dynamic pricing
    maximumlimitofdynamicpircing 
    1. $ Limit
    2. % Limit
      1. Please Note: You are required to put a dollar ($) and percentage (%) limit. A 10% decrease on a $1,000 quote, is not much, however a 50% decrease on $10,000 is a lot more. The dollar ($) limit helps to protect your business from ridiculous increases

These limits will not allow your tradesmen to exceed what you have set.
