Menu Option 
Description 
Create the price override reason code that you want the system to assign to an order line that is priced using a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special. 

Create customer price groups to assign to sold to customers. You can create a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special that uses a customer price group as one of the criteria required to qualify for the quantity price matrix special. See Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy for a list of the criteria you can define for a quantity price matrix special. 

Create the quantity price matrix pricing structure. • Use the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Details Screen to create the quantity break pricing structure for a specific:  item category and quantity  item and quantity  item, SKU and quantity • Use the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen to create a special quantity break pricing structure for a specific item category, item, or item and SKU and define the criteria that must be met to qualify for the special pricing structure. You can use the following criteria for a quantity price matrix special:  sold to customer and quantity  customer price group and quantity  source code and quantity  sold to customer, source code and quantity  customer price group, source code and quantity See Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy for the hierarchy the system uses to find quantity price matrix price to use. 

To do End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing during repricing, the Price method field for the source code on the order header must be set to Reg Plus Reprice. 
Entity level override: You can set up pricing value overrides for any entity that should use different pricing logic from your companywide standard. In order entry, the system checks the entity associated with the source code on the order header to determine if entitylevel pricing overrides are in effect. See Working with Entities (WENT) for more information.
System Control Value 
Description 
Defines the sequence in the pricing hierarchy in which the system uses the quantity price matrix line level pricing method. See Pricing Values (B31) for a list of the available pricing methods. 

Select this field to have the system reprice items in order entry based on the price breaks you define in the Working with Quantity Price Matrix (WQPM) menu option. Note: If you select quantity price matrix pricing as your endoforder pricing method, you cannot select any other endoforder pricing method. If you are reviewing this system control value using the Pricing Values (B31) umbrella system control value, an error message displays No other end of order methods allowed with Qty Price Matrix. 

Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) 
Enter the price override reason code that you want the system to assign to an order line that is priced using a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special. The system assigns this price override reason code to eligible order lines during repricing. Any order lines that are assigned this price override reason code cannot be further discounted. However, you can still apply a source % discount to these order lines. Also, the system prevents you from manually entering this price override reason code for an order line in order entry or order maintenance: Price override reason reserved and cannot be manually entered. Leave this field blank if you want to allow the system to apply further discounting, such as promotions, to order lines that are priced using a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special. 
Determining the Quantity Price Matrix to Use
The system uses the quantity price matrix with the most recent Effective date whose status is Active. If more than one active quantity price matrix exists with the same effective date, the system uses the first quantity price matrix in alphanumeric order. For example, the system would use quantity price matrix A before quantity price matrix B.
If the Multi Currency by Offer (E03) system control value is selected, the system uses the quantity price matrix with the most recent Effective date whose status is Active and whose currency matches the currency defined for the offer associated with the source code on the order header.
Example: Determining the Quantity Price Matrix to Use
The following quantity price matrixes exist in the QPM Header table.

The Multi Currency by Offer (E03) system control value is selected.
• On 6/30/09, a customer places an order. The currency defined for the offer associated with the source code on the order header is USD. In this situation, the system uses quantity price matrix SM09 to price the items on the order.
• On 7/02/09, a customer places an order. The currency defined for the offer associated with the source code on the order header is USD. In this situation, the system uses quantity price matrix S409 to price the items on the order. Quantity price matrix SC09 has the same effective date, but the system uses S409 because it comes first alphabetically.
• On 7/02/09, a customer places an order. The currency defined for the offer associated with the source code on the order header is CAN. In this situation, the system does not find a quantity price matrix it can use and instead, refers to the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for each line on the order.
Determining the QPM Price to Use
The system looks at the quantity price matrix specials and quantity price matrix details to find the quantity price matrix price to apply to an order line.
• You can define quantity price matrix specials at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen.
• You can define quantity price matrix details at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Details Screen.
Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy
The system uses the following hierarchy to find the quantity price matrix price to apply to an item on an order line.
1. 
Use a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special. Quantity price matrix customer specials are QPM discount prices that use customer or customer price group as a qualifier. You define quantity price matrix customer specials at the defined at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen. See Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special for a list of available QPM customer specials. 
2. 
Use a Quantity Price Matrix Source Special. Quantity price matrix source specials are QPM discount prices that use source code, and NOT customer or customer price group, as a qualifier. You define quantity price matrix source code specials at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen. See Quantity Price Matrix Source Special for a list of available QPM source specials. 
3. 
Use a Quantity Price Matrix Detail: Quantity price matrix details are QPM base prices for a specific item and SKU, item, or item category. You define quantity price matrix details at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Details Screen. See Quantity Price Matrix Detail for a list of available QPM details. 
Only one quantity price matrix price can apply to an order line. For example, if an order line qualifies for a QPM customer special and a QPM source special, the system applies the QPM customer special and not the QPM source special to the order line, based on the QPM price hierarchy outlined below.
Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special A quantity price matrix customer special is a QPM discount price defined at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen that uses customer or customer price group as a qualifier. If an order line qualifies for a QPM special that uses customer or customer price group as a qualifier, the system applies the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) to the order line during End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing. When this price override reason code is defined for an order line, the system cannot apply other discounts, such as promotions, to the order line; however, the system can still apply a source % discount to the order line. The system uses the following hierarchy to find the quantity price matrix customer special to apply to an item on an order line. 

1. 
Customer, Source Code, Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item and SKU match the item and SKU on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
2. 
Customer, Source Code, Item, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item matches the item on the order line. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
3. 
Customer, Source Code, Item Category, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
4. 
Customer Price Group, Source Code, Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item and SKU match the item and SKU on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
5. 
Customer Price Group, Source Code, Item, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
6. 
Customer Price Group, Source Code, Item Category, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group and source code match the sold to customer and source code on the order header and whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
7. 
Customer, Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item and SKU match the item and SKU on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
8. 
Customer, Item, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item matches the item on the order line. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
9. 
Customer, Item Category, Quantity Use the QPM special whose sold to customer matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
10. 
Customer Price Group, Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item and SKU match the item and SKU on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
11. 
Customer Price Group, Item, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
12. 
Customer Price Group, Item Category, Quantity Use the QPM special whose customer price group matches the sold to customer on the order header and whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the Price Group field in the Customer Sold To table to find the customer price group defined for the sold to customer on the order header. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
Quantity Price Matrix Source Special A quantity price matrix source special is a QPM discount price defined at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Specials Screen that uses source code, and NOT customer or customer price group, as a qualifier. If an order line qualifies for both a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special and a Quantity Price Matrix Source Special, the system applies the customer special to the order line. The system uses the following hierarchy to find the quantity price matrix source special to apply to an item on an order line. 

1. 
Source Code, Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM special whose source code matches the source code on the order header and whose item and SKU match the item and SKU on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
2. 
Source Code, Item, Quantity Use the QPM special whose source code matches the source code on the order header and whose item matches the item on the order line. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
3. 
Source Code, Item Category, Quantity Use the QPM special whose source code matches the source code on the order header and whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM special, the system: • uses the QPM special whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM special whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
A quantity price matrix detail is a QPM base price defined at the Work with Quantity Price Matrix Details Screen for a specific item and SKU, item, or item category. If an order line qualifies for a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special or Quantity Price Matrix Source Special, the system applies the customer special or source special to the order line instead of the QPM base price. The system uses the following hierarchy to find the quantity price matrix detail to apply to an item on an order line. 

1. 
Item, SKU, Quantity Use the QPM detail whose item and SKU matches the item and SKU on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM detail, the system: • uses the QPM detail whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM detail whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
2. 
Item and Quantity Use the QPM detail whose item matches the item on the order line. If the item has SKUs, all SKUs for the item qualify for the price. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM detail, the system: • uses the QPM detail whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM detail whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
3. 
Item Category and Quantity Use the QPM detail whose item category matches the item on the order line. The system looks at the SKU ITC Category field in the SKU table to find the item category defined for the item on the order line. If more than one quantity is defined for this QPM detail, the system: • uses the QPM detail whose quantity matches the order line quantity. • uses the QPM detail whose quantity is less than, but closest to, the order line quantity. 
Order lines for a negative order quantity: You cannot create a quantity price matrix special or quantity price matrix detail for a negative quantity. If an order line is entered for a negative quantity, the system will not apply a quantity price matrix price to the order line; the order line will use the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line. Also, order lines for a negative quantity are not included in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing and end of order pricing; see End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing.
Order lines that have a manual price override: The system does not apply a quantity price matrix price to an order line if a manual price override is defined; the order line will use the manual price override. Also, the system includes the quantity for order lines that have a manual price override in the endoforder quantity price matrix calculation. See End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing.
Order lines that are soldout: The system does not apply a quantity price matrix price to an order line that is soldout; the order line will use the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line. Also, order lines that are assigned a soldout control code are not included in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing and end of order pricing; see End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing.
Once the system finds the quantity price matrix special or quantity price matrix detail to apply to the order line, the system calculates the price for the order line.
When a QPM price is defined: If a price is defined for the quantity price matrix detail or quantity price matrix special, the system applies this price to the order line.
Example: If the QPM price is $8.00, the unit price of the item on the order line is $8.00. If the order quantity for the item on the order line is 2, the extended price of the item on the order line is $16.00.
When a QPM discount percentage is defined: If a discount percentage is defined for the quantity price matrix special, the system applies this discount percentage to the price defined for the associated quantity price matrix detail.
The system uses the item category, item, SKU, and quantity defined for the quantity price matrix special to find the associated quantity price matrix detail.
Example: If the quantity price matrix special is:
Customer 
Item 
SKU 
Quantity 
% Discount 
2 
AB10 
RED 
1 
10% 
The quantity price matrix detail associated with the special is:
Item 
SKU 
Quantity 
Price 
AB10 
RED 
1 
8.00 
And the price to apply to the order line when item AB10 RED for a quantity of 1 is ordered is 7.20 (8.00 QPM detail price  10% QPM customer special discount = 7.20).
If a quantity price matrix detail does not exist for the same quantity as defined for the quantity price matrix special, the system uses the quantity price matrix detail for the next available lower quantity.
Example: If the quantity price matrix special is:
Customer 
Item 
SKU 
Quantity 
% Discount 
2 
AB10 
RED 
3 
10% 
The quantity price matrix details associated with the special are:
Item 
SKU 
Quantity 
Price 
AB10 
RED 
1 
8.00 
AB10 
RED 
2 
7.50 
AB10 
RED 
4 
7.00 
The system uses the quantity price matrix detail for a quantity of 2 to apply to the order line when item AB10 RED for a quantity of 3 is ordered. The price to apply to the order line is 6.75 (7.50 QPM detail price  10% QPM customer special discount = 6.75).
When a QPM price cannot be found: If the system cannot find a quantity price matrix price, the system uses the next pricing method in the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line. If the system cannot find a price using any available pricing method, the system displays the standard error message: Price (0.00) cannot be zero for item.
Pricing method description: The pricing method description that displays on the Work with Order Line Screen (Changing/Adding an Item) shows the method used to calculate the price for the item.
• Qty Price Matrix displays if the price is a result of a Quantity Price Matrix Detail or Quantity Price Matrix Source Special.
• Qty Price Matrix Cust Ovr displays if the price is a result of a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special. Once the system reprices the order, the system updates the pricing method description to Qty Price Matrix.
Discount calculation messages: If you have defined an offer price for your items and the Display Order Line Discount Messages (F01) system control value is selected, the system displays Discount Calculation Messages when you add an item to an order, indicating the order line number of the discounted item, the offer price, the actual price (the discounted price the customer is paying), the dollar amount of the discount, and the discount percentage. For example, if the item offer price is $10.00 and the Quantity Price Matrix Detail price is $5.00, the discount calculation message displays as: Line 1: Offer = 10.00 Actual = 5.00 Discount = 5.00: 50:00%.
Price override reason for customer specials: If an order line qualifies for a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special, the system applies the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) to the order line during End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing. When this price override reason code is defined for an order line, the system cannot apply any other discounts, such as promotions, to the order line. However, the system can still apply a source % discount to the order line.
Also, the system prevents you from manually entering this price override reason code for an order line: Price override reason reserved and cannot be manually entered.
Order API: If the order uses quantity price matrix pricing and no actual_price is specified for the item in the Inbound Order XML Message (CWORDERIN), then the order API uses the Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy to apply a quantity price matrix price to the order line. If the item on the order line qualifies for a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special, the system applies the QPM customer discount price to the order line and assigns the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) to the order line.
Note: The system does not validate that the price override reason code defined in the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) system control value is not passed as the prc_ovr_reason for an order line received through the generic order interface. However, you should not use the price override reason code defined in the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) system control value as the override reason code for any manually entered price that you define in the actual_price.

End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing
If the Quantity Price Matrix Pricing (K41) system control value is selected, the system reevaluates the entire order during repricing to find the best quantity price matrix price to apply to each qualifying order line.
See When Repricing Occurs for more information on when repricing occurs during interactive order entry.
Source code setting: To do end of order quantity price matrix pricing, the Price method field for the source code on the order header must be set to Reg Plus Reprice.
The system does the following steps during end of order quantity price matrix pricing.
1. 
The system evaluates the order lines to find the price of each order line based on the Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy. The system finds the quantity price matrix price to apply to an order line based on the total order quantity of an item across the lines on the order. For example, if item A01 is on order line 1 for a quantity of 1 and is also on order line 2 for a quantity of 2, the system uses the total order quantity of 3 to find the quantity price matrix price to apply to each order line. Order lines priced using a quantity price matrix customer special: • The system uses the quantity price matrix customer special as the price for the order line. • The system includes the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing. Order lines that have a manual price override: • The system uses the manual price override as the price for the order line. • The system includes the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing. Order lines for a negative order quantity: • The system does not apply a quantity price matrix price to the order line; the order line will use the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line. • The system does not include the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing. Order lines that are assigned a soldout control code: • The system does not apply a quantity price matrix price to the order line; the order line will use the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line. • The system does not include the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing. Orders lines for a BOGO (Buy One/Get One) discount: • The system uses the BOGO discount as the price for the order line. • The system does not include the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing. See BOGO (Buy One/Get One) Discount or Free Gift by Item Category or Item for more information. 
2. 
If the order line is priced using a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special, the system defaults the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) to the order line. Also, the system updates the pricing method description that displays on the Work with Order Line Screen (Changing/Adding an Item) from Qty Price Matrix Cust Ovr to Qty Price Matrix. 
3. 
The system evaluates the order and order lines for any discounts, premiums, and promotions. The system decides whether an order qualifies for a discount, premium, or promotion based on the quantity price matrix price that is applied to each order line during repricing and not during initial order entry. If an order line has the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42), the system does not apply any other discounts, such as promotions, to the order line. However, the system can still apply a source % discount to the order line. Example: The following QPM prices are defined: • for a quantity of 1, the price = 5.00 • for a quantity of 2, the price = 4.50 • for a quantity of 3, the price = 3.50 You enter an order for source code S7. A source dollar discount is defined for S7: receive $2.00 off a $10.00 or more order. During initial order entry, you add the following order lines: • order line 1 for a quantity of 1 and a price of 5.00. • order line 2 for a quantity of 1 and a price of 5.00. During repricing, the system evaluates the total order quantity of the items on the order and reprices each order line: • order line 1 for a quantity of 1 and a price of 4.50. • order line 2 for a quantity of 1 and a price of 4.50. Because the order lines qualified for a different QPM price, the merchandise total is now 9.00 instead of 10.00 and the order no longer qualifies for the source dollar discount. 
Order API: If the payment information is sent separately from the rest of the order in the generic order API, the Detailed Order XML Response (CWORDEROUT) might be generated twice: once when you receive the initial order message and once when you receive the payment information. In this situation, the system does end of order quantity price matrix pricing when it receives the initial order message without payment information. The system sends the final quantity price matrix price in the first pass and second pass of the Detailed Order XML Response (CWORDEROUT); see Discounted and Added Items in the CWOrderOut Response Message.

Adding a new line to the order 
When you add an order line in order maintenance, the system finds the quantity price matrix price for each individual order line as in order entry; see Determining the QPM Price to Use and Calculating the QPM Price. If you add more than one order line for the same item, the system will not reprice the order lines based on the total quantity of the item across order lines. Example: The following QPM prices are defined: • for a quantity of 1, the price = 5.00 • for a quantity of 2, the price = 4.50 • for a quantity of 3, the price = 3.50 You add order line 3 for a quantity of 1; the system assigns a price of 5.00. You add order line 4 for a quantity of 1; the system assigns a price of 5.00. The system does not assign a price of 4.50 to each order line, even though the total order quantity for the item across order lines is 2. 
Changing an existing line on the order 
If you change the quantity on an order line in order maintenance, the system will not change the price to show the new quantity price matrix price break that applies to the order line, based on the new order line quantity. Example: The following QPM prices are defined: • for a quantity of 1, the price = 5.00 • for a quantity of 2, the price = 4.50 • for a quantity of 3, the price = 3.50 The order quantity for an existing order line is 2 with a price of 4.50. If you change the order line quantity from 2 to 1, the system does not update the price to 5.00 and instead keeps the price of 4.50. 
Repricing an order 
The Reprice option is not available in Order Maintenance. When this option is selected, the following error message displays: Selected function is not valid for current processing mode (Maintain). If the total quantity ordered for an item or item category across order lines results in the order lines qualifying for a different quantity price matrix price, the system does not apply the new price to the order lines. Example: The following QPM prices are defined: • for a quantity of 1, the price = 5.00 • for a quantity of 2, the price = 4.50 • for a quantity of 3, the price = 3.50 Order line 1 has an order quantity of 1 and a price of 5.00. If you add a new order line for an order quantity of 2, the system assigns a price of 4.50 to the order line. Even though the total order quantity across the order lines is 3, the system does not apply the price of 3.50 to the order lines. 
Cancelling an existing line on the order 
If you cancel an existing order line in order maintenance, the system will not reprice the other order lines on the order that are for the same item that was cancelled to find the new quantity price matrix price that applies to the order lines. Example: The following QPM prices are defined: • for a quantity of 1, the price = 5.00 • for a quantity of 2, the price = 4.50 • for a quantity of 3, the price = 3.50 Order line 1 has an order quantity of 1 and a price of 3.50 (based on the total order quantity of 3 across the order lines on the order). Order line 2 has an order quantity of 2 and a price of 3.50 (based on the total order quantity of 3 across the order lines on the order). If you cancel order line 2, the system cancels the order line but does not reprice order line 1 to a price of 5.00, even though the total order quantity across the order lines on the order is now 1.

Quantity Price Matrix Troubleshooting
If the system is not applying the correct quantity price matrix price to an order line, check the following information.
Quantity price matrix set up correctly? Verify that quantity price matrix pricing is set up correctly. See Quantity Price Matrix Setup for the system control values and menu options that you should verify.
Correct quantity price matrix used? Verify that the price that you expected is defined in the quantity price matrix that is currently in use. See Determining the Quantity Price Matrix to Use for more information on how the system decides which quantity price matrix to use.
Matching currencies? If the Multi Currency by Offer (E03) system control value is selected, the currency defined for the offer associated with the source code on the order header must match the currency code defined for the quantity price matrix.
Does the source code allow repricing? To do End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing during repricing, the Price method field for the source code on the order header must be set to Reg Plus Reprice.
Does the order line qualify for the quantity price matrix? Verify that the order line qualifies for the quantity price matrix.
• If the order line has a manual price override, the system uses the manual price override as the price for the order line.
• If the order line is for a negative order quantity, the system does not apply a quantity price matrix price to the order line; the order line will use the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to find the price for the order line.
• If the order line is for a BOGO (Buy One, Get One) discount, the system uses the BOGO discount as the price for the order line.
• Look at the Work with Order Line Screen (Changing/Adding an Item) to review the pricing method used to price the order line. If the order line was not priced using a quantity price matrix price, take a look at the pricing hierarchy defined in the Pricing Values (B31) system control value to review the sequence in which the system applies line level pricing to an order line. Also, if the Best Way Pricing (A78) system control value is selected, the system applies the best price, and not necessarily the quantity price matrix price, to the order line.
• Review the Quantity Price Matrix Price Hierarchy to determine if a different quantity price matrix price from the one you expected was applied to the order. The system applies quantity price matrix pricing in the following order: QPM customer specials, QPM source specials, QPM base details.
• Check the order line quantity against the quantity price matrix quantity. To qualify, the order line quantity must match or be greater than the quantity price matrix price. For example, if the order line quantity is 2, the quantity price matrix quantity must be 2 or 1 to apply it to the order line. If the quantity price matrix quantity is greater than the order line quantity, the order line does not qualify for the price.
Does repricing change the price of the order line? If the Quantity Price Matrix Pricing (K41) system control value is selected, the system performs End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing. The system checks the total order quantity for the item across the lines on the order. During repricing, the system applies the quantity price matrix price to the order line based on the total order quantity of the item across order lines. For example, if the order line quantity is 2, but the item also exists on another order line for a quantity of 1, the quantity price matrix quantity can be 3 or less to apply it to the order line.
• If the order line is priced using a quantity price matrix customer special, the system includes the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing.
• If the order line contain a manual price override, the system includes the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing.
• If the order line is for a negative order quantity, the system does not include the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing.
• If the order line is for a BOGO (Buy One/Get One) discount, the system does not include the order line in the total quantity used for quantity price matrix pricing calculated during repricing.
Quantity price matrix customer special applied? If a Quantity Price Matrix Customer Special is applied to the order line, the order line does not qualify for other discounts and promotions, expect for a source % discount. Order lines that are priced using a quantity price matrix customer special are assigned the price override reason code defined in the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) system control value. Note: If the Price Override Reason for Price Matrix Customer Specials (K42) system control value is blank, the system does not assign a price override reason code to order lines that are priced using a quantity price matrix customer special. In this situation, these order lines qualify for other discounts and promotions.
Applied discount, premium, or promotion? The system decides whether an order qualifies for a discount, premium, or promotion based on the quantity price matrix price that is applied to each order line during repricing and not during initial order entry. See End of Order Quantity Price Matrix Pricing.
Was the order modified in order maintenance? During order maintenance, the system does linelevel quantity price matrix pricing, but does not do endoforder quantity price matrix pricing. Because of this, the system may price an order line using a quantity price matrix price, but does not evaluate the total order quantity for an item on the order across order lines. See Quantity Price Matrix Pricing in Order Maintenance.
