By Popular Demand: Name Your Price
The response we got from Pricelists warmed the cockles of our heart: Pros were thrilled with the ease, beauty and power of being able to price huge swathes of galleries with just a few clicks.
However, there were a few of you who said there was just one more thing you wanted: to be able to set the final price, not just the profit.
And we aim to please.
How to Set Your Final Price
Our inimitable Sorcerers just released an improvement that lets you set your pricing by price OR by profit. It’s your choice.
Open up your Pricelists manager and take a look at the fields here:
You’ll see that you can easily enter a value for your profit and sleep well knowing that’s the amount you’ll make.
But now the price field is changeable, too. Type in a number and you can print up ads, flyers and whatever else you wish, knowing that’s the price your customers will see.
See the green? We highlight the “active” field when you save the Pricelist, so you know at a glance which one is being used.
Which method should I use?
You should set your profit if:
- You want guaranteed margins on every sale. In the event of currency or base cost fluctuations, you may earn more than you set… but never less. The price displayed to your customers may change as a result of this, but the rounding tool is there to help make those numbers pretty.
You should set your price if:
- You have printed materials that require your pricing to stay fixed. We’ll switch over to profit-based pricing if the base cost ever goes higher than your set price. We’ll just use the profit amount you had when you first saved the Pricelist.
So go and play with your prices and make lots of money. Happy selling!
