Setting Prices by Using the Multiplier

Overview

The Multiplier feature provides the option to add a mark-up to the wholesale price. Marking-up the wholesale price will result in retail pricing. To further fine-tune pricing there's a rounding option which allows enables the Catalog Kiosk to automatically round a price up to the nearest .99, for example. Follow the steps below for instructions on how to use the multiplier.

Step 3

Users are given the option to change the Retail price and the List price. The Retail price is what the kiosk will display as the cost of purchasing the product. The List price is what the kiosk will display as a "comparison" price, and thus, should always have a higher multiplier than the Retail multiplier.

Step 4

Start by entering a Retail multiplier. The multiplier value multiplies the wholesale price with the factor entered into the field. For example, to achieve an 80% markup, users would enter a factor of 1.80 and hit "Apply".

Round Price allows prices to be automatically rounded up or down. Users can choose to round up or down to the nearest price point desired. By default, the Catalog App Manager is set to round up to the nearest $0.99. The options to round up or down, as well as the dollar amount to round to are both adjusted in this section.

To enable this price rounding, check the box next to "Round Price:" and hit Apply to save the setting.

Round Price Example: After applying the multiplier, a table retails at $387.45.

  • Round up to the nearest "0" and a Cent value of "99" wiil display as $390.99
  • Round up to the nearest "–" and a cent value of "99" will display as $387.99

 

 

Step 5

Repeat step 4 for the List Pricing section.

Please Note: The list multiplier should always be higher than the Retail multiplier. The list multiplier typically represents a "regular" price for the customer.

 

 

Step 6

When the multipliers are entered correctly. The retail price will appear in a larger bold font, and the List price will appear in a crossed out font:
