Enter “Y” or “N” to determine whether to allow  any additional order discounts or A/R discounts to apply when this pricing scheme is in affect (Break A, line #4) and press <enter>.  The example shows a special price of $14.49 when at least one of an item associated with quantity discount 112 is in affect.  The example also defines that no other discounts will apply.

Add additional quantity breaks on lines 5 through 15.  The example indicates quantity price as follows:

1 to 4 pieces     at  $14.49

5 to 9 pieces     at $13.99

10 plus pieces  at $13.49

No other discounts apply at any of the break levels.

Now that the quantity discount has been created, you must associate it with an item.  Go to 10/50/20 from the main CODIS menu, Price Matrix Editor program.

A pop-up box displays the details of the quantity discount you are associating with the item. Enter a fallback price level used if the item doesn’t meet the minimum quantity defined in the quantity discount.  In our example, our minimum was a quantity of one so this becomes a mute point.  There may be cases where the first break is more than one so the price level entered in field 7 would be used for those quantities less than the first break.

You can define a starting and ending period for the quantity discount to be allowed in fields 2 and 3.  Enter them as necessary.
