Sales Types allow you to define pricing levels for specific types customers. A very common separation is between retail and wholesale customers. Depending on your primary customer base, you may either provide a discount or up-charge for a particular group.
For example, if 75% of your business is wholesale, and the balance retail, you would likely use your wholesale pricing as your base price list, and add some kind of up-charge for your retail customers:
- Wholesale - base
- Retail - 1.25 (25% up-charge)
Were the roles reversed, you may do something like:
- Retail - base
- Wholesale - 0.75 (25% discount)
Promotions, penalties for habitually late-paying or problematic customers, or any other situation where you may want to provide a standard deviation on all items a specific customer may buy.
