RULES ARE NOT MANDATORY TO SETUP, THIS IS AN ADDITIONAL FEATURE.  YOU CAN JUST SETUP A SELLING PRICE WITH NO RULE.

Pricing Rules allow you to create “rules” for how herbs, premix formulas are priced in your dispensary.    If certain conditions change in your dispensary, the price will update automatically for you.   You can also setup your default cost of goods and default selling prices.    When you apply a price rule to many herbs, you can then change the price rule and it will change the price of all the herbs associated with the pricing rule.   An example would be your pricing rule is set at a 200% markup.  If you change the pricing rule to 250%, all the herbs associated with that rule will change to a 250% markup, and you will not have to change them individually.

Default Cost of Goods

Set your default cost of goods for each herb type by entering a value in the box.  Information you add will automatically be saved for you.  Enter a default cost of goods for both premix formulas and single herbs.

Default Selling Price

Set your default selling price for each herb type. If you create a new item in your catalog, we will use the default selling price,  unless you change it.    This is to ensure all items in your dispensary have a selling price.

Rule Types Overview

There are 4 different types of Rules you can set

Exact Price
You can set the exact price you want to charge Example:  I want to charge 0.25 per gram always.   This type of rule does not use cost of goods to determine the selling price and it will never change the selling price of the herb based on cost of goods.

Margin Percentage
You can specify the margin you want to earn.   A margin refers to your total percent gross profit you earn from the final selling price.  Example:   Your cost of goods is 10 cents a gram, and your selling price is $1.00.  This means you will have a 90% margin.  You are earning 90 cents out of the $1.00 selling price.  The maximum margin percentage you can have is 99.99%.   A 100% margin is only possible if your cost of goods is free or $0.00, which is not possible in your dispensary.

If the cost of a herb is 10 cents a gram, and the dispensary wants to earn a margin of 20%,  the selling price of the herb should be value of Z.

X =  20% of the selling price (Your Margin)
Y =  80% of the selling Price (Cost of goods)
Z = selling price
$0.10 (y) ÷ 0.8 (80%) = 0.125 (Z)

Markup Percentage
You can specify the total percent you want to mark up the item.   Example:  Your cost of goods is $0.10, and you want a 300% markup.  This means your selling price will be $0.40.

The calculation is COGS x 3 + (COGS) = Selling Price

Markup Fixed
You can specify an exact amount to markup your order.   Example:  Lets say your cost of goods is $0.10 and your fixed markup is $0.15.  Your final selling price will be $0.25.  The calculation is COGS + fixed markup amount.

Latest Cost of Goods

Pricing rules are often based on the cost of the item. If we do not have information on what you are paying for the item, we will use the default cost of goods.

When you create a new herb, premix formula or product in your dispensary, it will use your default cost of goods until the cost of goods is changed. Please setup your default cost of goods.

Determing Latest Cost of Goods

1. If you upload inventory and specify a cost for the inventory, we will calculate the cost of goods for each item.

2. If you add a supplier product to the catalog item, we will use that as the cost of goods. If more than one product is added for a supplier for an item in your catalog, we will use the highest cost of goods for calculating the latest cost of goods.

3. Our last resort is to use the default cost of goods that you supply in this section. We use the default when you have not added a supplier product or added new inventory with a price.

Price Rules for Default Selling Price

Every item in your catalog needs a default selling price, which in many cases is the actual selling price.  If you are using tiered selling prices and a formula is created, and the total quantity of the item received is out of range, it will use your default selling price.   If you are not using tiered selling prices, this is your actual selling price.    You can create many rules for tiered selling prices and then apply the rule to the catalog item.  You can also just set a default selling price per item in your catalog and not use the default selling price.
