Catch Weight Pricing on Sales Quotes and Orders

Full training library

Whenever products utilize catch weight or variable pricing, users can create sales quotes/orders based on the average/nominal quantity and adjust the price quantity based on the actual weight (or other variable unit setup). This process allows you to sell things like a case of meat with pricing based on how many pounds (or kg) it weighs. Upon creation of the order (or quote), the default pricing will be based off of the nominal weight (or other variable price type) to be updated once the actual price quantity is entered.
