Hello dov,

 

Thank you for posting here in the Community. I want to assist you with any questions you may have about providing discounts.

 

Based on the information you've mentioned above, you need the Advanced Pricing feature which is only available in QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise. This feature allows you to offer quantity discounts to customers.

 

For more insights about Advanced Pricing, I'm adding the article I recommend on this: Use Advanced Pricing.

 

If you want to learn more about using QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise, you can also visit this link: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/enterprise/.

 

I'm always available here if you have additional questions or concerns about providing discounts. You can reach out to the Community by posting your response below.

Thank you so much for your prompt answer. However, I don't have the 'Qty Discount' option. I have 13.0 enterprise.

Hi there, mbarbour.

 

If you're referring to the software itself, QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise is good for 3 years. You can also upgrade it annually since Intuit releases the latest version every January.

 

On the other hand, the Silver, Gold and Platinum plan for the add on support/functionality is based on an annual subscription.

 

For more details about QuickBooks Enterprise pricing and features, you can check out this link: Pricing for QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise.

 

You can also contact our Sales Support Team if you have some inquiries. Just check out their phone number below the Sign In tab.

 

Please reply to this post if you need anything else. I'd be glad to help.

If I turn off advanced pricing, will it also disable the quantity discounts we have set up on the items?

Hello there, @Becky2019.

 

I'll not disable the quantity discount feature when you turn off the advanced pricing feature in your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).

 

Thus, you can still continue to use the quantity discount feature. You can check this article for detailed information about the advanced pricing feature: Use Advanced Pricing.

 

You might also want to check our Help articles page and learn some best practices that can guide you in your future tasks.

 

Do get back to us whenever you have other concerns or questions. We'll be around to help. Take care and keep safe.

Thank you for this reply. I actually WANT to turn off the quantity discounts as well.  We have them entered for thousands of items/parts and deleting all those manually is not practical.  Do you have a suggestion for how we can turn off/delete (or even just change the effective date to some time way in the future) all these quantity discounts for the items?

 

Thank you for your help!

Good morning, @Becky2019.

 

At this time, there's not a direct way to edit all of the quantity discounts for the items in a batch in QuickBooks Desktop. I'm going to submit feedback to our Product Development Team about bringing in a feature that will allow this to happen. In the meantime, I have a workaround to help make the editing easier for you:

  1. Go to Lists at the top menu, then select Add/Edit Multiple List Entries
  2. Click on the item to edit the information.

This will help gather your items to one page making it easier to locate and edit the information. For more information about how to edit, add, or delete items, click here.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you! I'm always here to help.

Thank you for that reply.  

 

I have another related question I'd appreciate you addressing for me.  We have another business division that is also using advanced pricing. We use sales orders, and partial shipments are common.  Often the price calculated by the pricing rules is off by rounding, or sometimes we just decide on a particular sales order to give the customer a different price.  And while we can change it to what we want when creating the sales order, anytime someone updates the sales order, QB then recalculates all the line item pricing based on the pricing rules.  Is there a way to disable the pricing rules on a particular sales order once it has been created and saved?

Hi there, @Becky2019.

 

Disabling the pricing rule will affect all the sales orders associated with it. Before disabling this feature, you'll want to ensure there are no other transactions linked with the rule to avoid any issues.

 
To disable the Pricing Rule, you can follow these easy steps below:

  1. Open your QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).
  2. Go to the Lists menu.
  3. Select the Price Rule List.
  4. Click the price rule you want to delete.
  5. Select the Price Rule drop-down and click Delete Price Rule.
  6. Click OK.

You can also check this article and read the Make a price rule inactive section for more information and detailed steps.

 

I'm also adding this article for future reference. This link can guide you through the process on removing a credit from an invoice: Remove or unapply a credit from an invoice or bill.

 

Let me know in the comment section if there's anything else I can help you with. I'll be around to help. Keep safe and stay healthy.

I don't think you understood my question. I don't want to disable the pricing rule in general, I want a way to disable it FOR A PARTICULAR SALES ORDER.   We create the sales order, sometimes need to adjust the calculated price, but then when the shipper goes back in to enter the tracking number and saves the sales order or we make any other change to the non-pricing aspects of the sales order, QB recalculates the price again and overrides the adjustments that were made (which reflects the pricing commitments made to the customer on that order). Is there a recommendation on how to best handle that?

Hello there, Becky2019,

 

I appreciate the additional information. We're unable to disable the pricing rule for a certain type of transaction. The price rule is an item based settings.

 

I'll be sure to send this feedback to our product developers. We gather data for future feature updates.

 

I'll be around if you have additional questions.
