Odoo offers a complete solution for the business needs of manufacturers and other business enterprises. An important part of every business is the preparation and maintenance of a price list. Odoo has developed an impressive price list feature that is sure to help a business to survive in the competitive market. Odoo also enables a user to create a price list for customers. This ERP software enables the user to get the best support for preparing a price list for a product or a product category.
Odoo takes into account a set of criteria for fixing prices. The criteria are given below;
Quantity, Quality, Service, Economic environment, Competition, Product demand, and Period.
The success of a business is directly proportional to the pricing of the product. However, the user will have to change the price based on the market situation and other external factors. While the key factors that decide the price are quality, cost of production, and quantity, factors including season, occasion, and the price fluctuation in the market also affect pricing.
Odoo Price List is a feasible option for many business groups engaging in product manufacturing and service providing. To make use of the price list feature, a user will have to install a Sales Module from Odoo Apps.
In the next step, the user can Configure the Sales Pricelist.
For this, we have to enable the option of pricelist in sales.
How to Enable Pricelist in Sales
You can do this in a simple way
Go to Sales> Configuration> Settings> Pricing> Pricelists> Multiple prices per product
Under the Price Lists tab in the settings, the user can find two options:
1. Multiple prices per product: By enabling this, the user can create price-lists for the customer segments or different price lists for different currencies.
2. Advanced price rules: This feature enables the user to set rules to change the price. Here, the user can set the rules based on product cost, public price or another pricelist. The user can also make use of the surcharges and discounts to make changes in the price. Odoo also supports the use of rounding of the price.
