Creating Price Lists

Go to My Site and then Price Lists.



You will notice that you have a default price list. This list contains existing products and their respective prices. 

To create a new discount or surcharge, click “Create Price List”, then give it a name.



You will need to choose from a normal price list, percentage surcharge or discount.Screen_Shot_2021-03-05_at_2.16.19_pm.png

With regards to normal price lists, you can: 

    • Filter by POS categories, tags and reporting groups.
    • Add individual prices or apply them to multiple boxes by ticking them. 
    • Reset pricing or change pricing.



   With regards to percentage surcharges and discounts, you can apply rates to:

    • All products and option sets
    • Selected POS Categories
    • Tagged products     



Once done you can save your price lists or save and schedule them. 
If you save and schedule your price lists you can: 

Click “No repeat” and organise them for one time only.

This could be all day or for a block of time.                   


Repeat schedules everyday and select all day or a block of time.Screen_Shot_2021-03-05_at_2.30.10_pm.png

Repeat schedules weekly, select days and all day or a block of time. Screen_Shot_2021-03-05_at_2.29.04_pm.png

Repeat schedules for multiple dates and select all day or a block of time. Screen_Shot_2021-03-05_at_2.29.13_pm.png

You can then manage price lists by priority. Only one price list can run at one time.                     Screen_Shot_2021-03-05_at_2.24.26_pm.png             


Managing Price Lists

When your price lists are activated, the POS will display a green bar at the top of the screen. It will encourage staff to activate the price lists. 

Note - If your price list is not on the POS, check that you’re online and that your POS has been recently synced with the Back Office.
