Pricing

When Advanced Pricing is used, the desired pricing scheme must be defined for each Price Group.  The Pricing tab is where you'll define this pricing information. Since this is an advanced feature of the PrISM system, it is recommended you contact Microworks Technical Support before continuing.

 

 

Add

Choose this option to add a new pricing line to this group.  This button opens the pricing entry window.

 

Copy

If you'd like to duplicate a pricing entry, highlight the respective entry and choose this option.

 

Remove

Highlight an entry to remove and choose this option.

 

Standard Options

This is the default view for the pricing setup grid.

 

Advanced Options

This options opens access to advanced pricing options - Order Type and Level; see descriptions below.

 

Price

This is the price charged for this item or modifier at the specified Count, Fraction, Size, Store Rule, Double, Order Type, and Level specifications.

 

Count

This field allows you to charge a specific price based on the count, or number, of items selected.  If this pricing setup is for toppings, this will apply to the count of toppings chosen.  The system will continue to use the last entry in the list for all counts higher than it.  For example, if you offer one dressing for free on a salad and charge $0.50 for each additional dressing, your count 1 price would be 0.00 and your count 2 price would be 0.50.  The system would then charge $0.50 for every dressing but the first one.

 

If this pricing setup is for a menu item, such as pizzas, this will apply to the count of pizzas.  For example, you may offer a deal where the first large pizza is $10.00 and each additional pizza is $8.00 each. This is also referred to as Doubles Pricing.  This is an advanced feature of the PrISM system and it is recommended that you contact Microworks Technical Support for assistance.

 

Fraction

This field is used for fractional topping pricing such as half and quarter. Fractions only apply to modifiers.  For example, if one whole topping was $1.00 and one half topping was $ .50, this would need to be setup as follows.  (Price=1.00, Count=1, Fraction=Whole), (Price=0.50, Count=1, Fraction=1st Half) and (Price=0.50, Count=1, Fraction=2nd Half).  This pricing group would be attached to the modifier list.

 

Size

This field relates the pricing level selected to the menu item that you are working on.  The PrISM system allows the user to set up a single modifier list for all items that share the same modifiers.  Each menu item will then be assigned a size, and that size corresponds to which pricing level is used to calculate modifier price.  The classic example of this is pizza.  Most menus have identical modifier lists for the different sizes of pizzas, the only difference being the price of the item.  For example, a topping on a small pizza is $.75, a medium is $1.00, and a large is $1.25.  Without using Sizes, each one of the modifier list would have to be set up individually, since only one price or price group can be attached to a modifier.

 

Order Type

The PrISM system has the ability to charge different amounts for the same item depending on the order type used to order it.  For example, if your large pizza costs 10.99 for delivery and 9.99 for all other order types, you would set up two pricing entries: (Price=10.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=Delivery) and (Price=9.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=All).

 

Note: The PrISM system checks order type pricing from the top down, meaning that any specific order type pricing must be physically higher in the price group than the "All" price entry.  For example, if your pizza base price group was set up as follows:

 

Price=10.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=Delivery

Price=9.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=All

 

Your large pizza will charge 10.99 for delivery and 9.99 for all other order types.  However, if the price group was set up this way:

 

Price=9.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=All

Price=10.99, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Order Type=Delivery

 

the large pizza would charge 9.99 for all order types, including delivery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Double Count

This field is only used for modifier lists attached to menu items that use Doubles Pricing.  It is referring to the second menu item when double pricing is used and it effects the modifiers pricing.  For example, your doubles pricing is $10.00 for the first pizza plus $1.00 for each topping and $5.00 for the second pizza with an unlimited number of toppings.  You would setup the pizza price group as noted above under Count for doubles pricing.  You would then setup the pizza topping price group as follows: (Price=1.00, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Double=1), (Price=0.00, Count=1, Fraction=Whole, Double=2).  Doubles are an advanced feature of the system, it is recommended you contact Microworks Tech Support for more information.

 

Store Rule

Store rules are only used by multi-store franchises, and even then only in very specific scenarios.  The vast majority of users can safely disregard this field.  For more information, contact Microworks Tech Support.

 

Level

The field is referring to the Pricing Level Exceptions.  This is used when pricing changes based on the day of the week, the time of the day, or for certain types of advanced coupons.

 

Pricing Filter

The Pricing Filter allows you to sort through your pricing setup, displaying only the pricing information required for easier viewing.

 

Price Size

Select the size you'd like to see in the pricing setup area.  This will filter out all other sizes, displaying only the pricing related to the size selected.

 

Fraction

This will sort the pricing setup by the fraction selected.

 

Level

Filtering with a blank Level setting will only show prices that do not have a level attached.  You may also sort by individual levels.

 

Reorder

This simply re-sorts the pricing setup items.

 

Show All

This option will show all pricing setup for this group regardless of Fraction, Size, or Level.
