Quantitative discounts / Free items with certain Qty

Hello experts,

Can anybody please guide me about the quantitative discount, (i.e. if we are selling 100 items 5 comes free with it). How do we handle this mentioned scenario ?

Help required!

    Hi,

    You can select the same items in two rows, say row 1--100 qty and row 2, 5 qty. For the first row, give the unit price and for the second , let it be zero.

    Also, Go to Administration> System Initialization> Company Details and check Allo release of material without Item Cost. This would solve your issue.

    Thanks,

    Joseph

    • Shahzad,

      Thanks for clarifying your policy...

      Then probably a UDF on the sales order line with a specific query is probably the way you want to go. UDF titled something like "Complimentary Products". The query would probably be incremental so that is someone orders 110 then you want 5, if they order 225 then you want 10, etc...

      And the entry clerk can enter the information on an additional line with zero price to customer.

      Would it be good to set up a distinct item code (for example, ZZZCompProd123" with zero price to customer) so you can track what goods were sent out with the order? (this depends upon how many promotional products you have - only one or two is OK, but if you are doing it for hundreds, it might be a bit too much to follow).

      Regards,

    Hello Shazad,

    There are several ways to do this depending upon the policy of your company.

    1. You can add a second row to the sales order for 5 at zero price to the customer, and

    2. You can set up a UDF on the sales order to remind the entry clerk that free items are allowable in certain cases.

    Do you give only 5 for 100 or could it be 5 for anything over 100 or could it be 5 for each 100???

    Regards,

    Zal

    Hi Shahzad...........

    5 free items alongwith 100 ordered items are nothing but your profit. So it would be mapped in goods receipt. I think it will give more proper accounting effect.

    and 100 items you should receive via GRPO......
