Where the user can update Price A, and then Price B for the same line item.



Staging Area Price

By clicking on the gear icon, users can display all the available columns. The Staging Area Price column will allow the user to price the items from the Staging Area. By entering a price there, the system will automatically update all products that are identical in the staging area and that come in for Open Market.

For an easier way to price Staging Area items, the system allows users to set the price directly from the Inventory > Pricing page.

Go to Inventory > Pricing and click on the Staging Area Items link.

Items in transit can be priced by setting the value under the Price A or Price B columns. Once the pricing has been updated and the user hits enter, the system will save the information.

Keep in mind that the system will only update the Staging Area items that match that have no customer or the customer is Open Market.


Price Per Unit

The users have the option to set the prices per units for those product lines that may be sold as units. 

To have this option available, please keep in mind that the Sell By Units setting needs to be enabled. Please refer to Sell By Units to activate this option.

After activating this option follow the next steps to see the Price Per Units column:

Go to Inventory > Select Pricing tab> Click on "staging area Items" > Use the filters to find the lines to update. 

Click on the Gear Setting icon. The "Default Columns" window will display. There you need to check the "Price Per Unit" option, so that you can view this column on the screen. Click on Save.

The Price Per Unit column will appear. Enter the price information per unit. Finally, this will be the price that each unit will be assigned after opening that box using the automatic or manual process to open boxes.


  • If the user has a value in this column for a certain line of product and splits the line, the system will assign the same Price Per Unit to the new line that is created.
  • If a multi-location company has a value in this column for a certain line item and transfers this product to another location, the system will maintain the same price per unit previously assigned.

 Finally, on this window, the user will have the option to Export the information to Excel.
