Price Codes allow you to maintain price groupings for products and orders. Each price code represents a unique category of products for buyers who each receive the same pricing. Price codes can also be set for a category of products as well. Each standard or special price stored for a customer must be associated with a Price Code. Price Codes can be set up on a category-specific or product-specific basis.
Examples of Price Codes for customers might include Dealer, List, Educational, Government, Special, Trade and High Volume.
