When quoting for a particular product in Business Hub, DecoNetwork users often have different pricing structures that they want to offer to different customer bases. A way to achieve this is to create different versions of the same products and apply a different price table to each. For example, you can create a wholesale version and a retail version of a particular product. You can also specify different price tables for multiple products at once by editing pricing at the Product Group level. All products that belong to the product group will then use the specified price table. See the Product Groups help article for detailed information about product groups.
Watch the following video for an explanation of how to use different decoration price tables for quoting the same product. Read below for instructions on how to configure a product to use a particular price table.

To specify which price table to use for a product:

Decoration Price is the charge to decorate the product using the decoration processes that the product may use. The processes the product can use are set in the decoration areas tab. By default, a product will use simple pricing, which inherits all pricing settings from the master decoration pricing page. This page is found under Admin > Decoration Processes by looking at the pricing structure for the chosen process. By clicking the blue config wheel next to the decoration processes available to the product, you may edit the decoration pricing model being used.
- Select the Use custom decoration pricing (Advanced) option.
An "Edit Price" link will be revealed next to the decoration processes.
Click on the Edit Price link.
This will open up the Decoration pricing popup window.
The Decoration pricing window displays a table showing the present price settings for each valid decoration process.
- Tick the Specify pricing for each decoration area checkbox.
This expands the table to show price settings for each decoration area on the product, for each decoration process that the area supports.
Un-tick the Default Pricing checkbox to edit the pricing of each decoration process.
The pricing method used for each decoration process is defined globally in a separate part of the system. To change the pricing method from Single Price to Price Table, go to Admin > Decoration Processes > Decoration Pricing. Note that any changes will affect all products.
- Choose the price table you want to use for each decoration area for this product.
- Click Save when done.
When creating a quote, choose the product configured with the price table that you want to use in the quote.
