Pricing Profiles

Power of Multiple Profiles, why have more than one profile

Fast Accurate Bids can get you the Correct Pricing for any type of client.

But there is more than one type of client. Here are a few types of customers that need their own pricing structure.

 

Every business has it's own pricing models to match:

 

Every customer and job should have the correct pricing structure for that customer or job.

So Correct Pricing is...  Not ONE SIZE FITS ALL

Fast Accurate Bids Has Built In Pricing Profiles:

 

Profiles are completely adjustable:

 

Create more than one type of Profile for each type of Client and Customer, each gets their own pricing structure

So  Correct Pricing is... Different Pricing Profiles for Different Customers and/or Different jobs

Fast Accurate Bids is GREAT at creating pricing profiles to match the client and the job.

Setting up different pricing profiles is easy. Create your first base profile and adjust it quickly.

Step 1) Create a base Pricing Profile, one that is for the Retail Customer,

 

Step 2) Modify this profile and save under different names for each type of profile

Types of Customers and corresponding profiles that match

Retail Customer (This should be your base profile, all other profiles are based off this one)

 

Resale

 

Schools, Churches, Civic Organizations (that you want to support)

 

Wholesale

 

Costs

Note: Itemize Bids for Screen Printers requires special profiles - Screen Charges

Important note about screen printing Itemized Bids:

In order to charge separately for the screens, you’ll need to set up a new pricing profile in which the field Screen Charge per Color is set to 0.00. If you don't remove the screen charge from the profile and the screen charge is in the profile, and add it to the line item, you will charge the customer twice for the screens.

This eliminates the screen charges when setting up the line items on the Design and Pricing Page.

To add the separate charge for the screens, click Add Direct Item on the Line Items Page and add the screen charge using the Add Direct Item dialog box.

 

Be sure to create a new profile with the word "Itemized" in it to make sure you use the correct profile when doing itemized bids.

These profiles and changes to markups are just a guideline, please make sure any profile you make, is profitable to you!

Examples on how these types of profiles can be different.

Every profile can be different in every section on the Profile Settings Page.

There are some global changes that can be made to the base profile that changes the price to the customer.

*Commissions

Commissions are usually paid to salespeople for making the sale.

If you do not have a salesperson now, you might in the future and you will have the commission built into your pricing.

 

There are other uses for the commission in Fast Accurate Bids.

  1. You are making the sales, why don't you make a commission yourself?
  2. If you want to give a discount to schools or churches, taking 1/2 off the commission is an easy way to cut your prices to them and still get your full decorations charges and full item price with it's markup.
  3. If you are a contract decorator, you can remove the commission completely, as the company you are doing the decorating for, is your salesperson and still get your full decorations charges and full item price with it's markup.
