About the Processing Order of Price Adjustments
The order in which price adjustments are processed can affect the final price. For example, a product costs $100 and you give a $10 promotional discount plus a 10 percent volume discount if the customer buys more than ten. If the customer qualifies for both discounts, then you can calculate the final price in two ways:
- The unit cost would be $81 if the promotional discount is applied first ($100 - $10 = $90, and 10 percent off $90 is $81).
- The unit cost would be $80 if the volume discount is applied first (10 percent off $100 is $90, and $90 - $10 = $80).
The pricing procedure determines the processing order of discounts, but you can customize it. For information about the default processing order, see Pricing Procedures and Workflow References.
