I would like to set a price level for a specific amount, not a % value. For example, $50 on top of cost price. Can anyone help? I have Reckon Premier contractor 2017

Susan - Price levels can be based on a percentage or a per item basis... just select per item - then scroll down to the various items you want to adjust and put in the actual price you want to charge when this price level is used.

Hi Susan,

Thank you for your query and welcome to the Reckon Community.

You can setup a price level per item opposed to a fixed percentage. This means you would need to manually type in a custom amount for each item.

See below how to do this.

1. Go to Lists > Price Level List
2. Click 'Price Level' (bottom left-hand corner) > New
3. Price Level Name > enter a name
4. Price Level Type > select 'Per Item'
5. Type in a Custom Price for each relevant item > click OK

I hope this helps.

Luke.

So from both your comments, I need to adjust each item individually? And I would have the manually add the desired amount to each? If my cost changes, it wouldn’t automatically change my price level? Eg: something costs me $200, I want to charge an extra $50, I enter $250. But if my buying price goes up to $210, then I would need to manually change it to $260? Have I understood that correctly?

Yes, that sounds like what you would need it to do... but not sure I understand your logic - if you sell something for $250 that costs you $200 - thats a 25% markup - so it would make sense that if your cost price increases to $210 - then you should be charging $262.50?  if you were to do it like this (which is still a per item pricing, but you can set the percentage based on cost price and then apply it automatically rather than manually) - then you could be sure to keep your margins consistent and it would be easier to manage?
