The example shows a special price of $14.49 when at least one of an item associated with quantity discount 112 is in affect. The example also defines that no other discounts will apply.
Add additional quantity breaks on lines 5 through 15. The example indicates quantity price as follows:
1 to 4 pieces at $14.49
5 to 9 pieces at $13.99
10 plus pieces at $13.49
No other discounts apply at any of the break levels.
Now that the quantity discount has been created, you must associate it with an item. Go to 10/50/20 from the main CODIS menu, Price Matrix Editor program.

A pop-up box displays the details of the quantity discount you are associating with the item. Enter a fallback price level used if the item doesn’t meet the minimum quantity defined in the quantity discount. In our example, our minimum was a quantity of one so this becomes a mute point. There may be cases where the first break is more than one so the price level entered in field 7 would be used for those quantities less than the first break.
You can define a starting and ending period for the quantity discount to be allowed in fields 2 and 3. Enter them as necessary.
Enter the starting date. Entry as MMDDYY (example – 120110) is acceptable.
Enter the ending date. Entry as MMDDYY (example – 123110) is acceptable.
Type “U” and press <enter> to add the record to the price matrix. In the example above, we’ve defined a quantity discount, 112 and associated it with an item, EHP 144200 in price matrix 3 with a starting date of Dec 1, 2010 and an ending date of Dec 31, 2010. Any customer purchasing EHP 144200 between Dec 1, 2010 and Dec 31, 2010 and the item is priced by price matrix 3 will receive the quantity discount.
Line 30 displays the entry in price matrix 3.
Product Stock Inquiry displays the single quantity price along with the messages “More Prices use /J”.
Type “/J” <enter> to display the additional price breaks.
A pop-up box displays the quantity break prices during order entry when the cursor is at the end of the item line.
