Everyone of you who uses the Designer - no matter if in the frontend or in the backend order entry - knows the finishing price lists, too. Up to now it was only possible to create prices by design size or in the embroidery area by stitches. Our programmers were very hard-working, so that we can now also create scaled prices for finishing. This means that you can determine that the design will be cheaper if you have the same design 50 or 100 times.
This is how it works
First we go to the menu item "price lists for finishing" in your Smake Shop backend. There we see my previously created price lists for finishing as usual. Now select the price list you want to edit and click on the button "Edit" on the right side.
Here you see now, that up to now only the price list from 1 piece is available. With the button "Add Scale" you can now add another scale. In our example we now use the Embroidery price list and add a scale from 50 finishings.
After clicking on the button "Add Scale" a new mask opens - the nice thing is that you can see directly the previously created scales, so that mistakes are avoided.
First of all, you enter at the top of the screen, from which amount the season should start - in our case it's "50". Then you can choose how the system should calculate - here you can choose between "Do not calculate anything", "Substract percentage" and "Substract fixed amounts".
Do not calculate anything
With this selection the system does not calculate independently and you can manually enter your desired prices per number of stitches. These are then used in the designer from the selected quantity to calculate the final price. You enter the new prices conveniently under "Sales price from: X" - see screenshot below:
As the name suggests, this selection allows me to subtract a percentage. For example, the finishing should be 10% cheaper from 50 times the same design.
Once you have made this selection, a new field "Amount" appears next to it - here you can simply enter your percentage - for example 10% from the last season. With a click on „Calculate now" the system automatically calculates your prices and fills them in the lower area of the new season:
Substract fixed amounts
This selection works similar to the previous one, except this time you define a fixed discount and not a percentage. Now you enter the discount in the new area "Amount" and click on "Calculate now" so that the prices are calculated automatically in the lower area and the new scale is filled.
Do not forget to save!
No matter which of the three variants you choose, it only becomes effective if you confirm the whole thing by clicking on "Create" in the mask - the mask is closed and the new scale is saved.
In the overview you can now see your new price scale:
With a click on the "little red X“ you can remove this season again. If you click on the "small blue pencil" you can adjust your price scale again.
The calculation becomes visible after changing the quantity
In the designer you place your design as you wish - in the frontend you place it in the shopping cart and in the backend you save your placement in the order entry. If you now change the desired quantity from 1 to (in our example 50), the price is recalculated.
Attention: Here you can see the total price including finishings!
