This setting can be enabled for a specific customer if the FOB price needs to be shown in the Order Entry, Prebooks, and E-commerce screens instead of the unit price. The FOB price is calculated according to the Outbound Freight and Fuel Surcharge and added to the unit price. If the Outbound Freight is not enabled, the system calculates it with just the Fuel Surcharge to obtain the FOB Price.
Please take into account that, when creating a Prebook or a Standing Order, the salesperson must include the Fuel Surcharge in the price entered since the system won't include it when invoicing the items either manually or by automatic billing. The GPM displayed on sales screens will already include the Fuel Surcharge.
If you need for the FOB price to reflect the "Fuel Surcharge", it also has to be enabled.
