When your shopVOX account is created, we load some starter products for you.
You can locate these products by using the company menu.
These products should be used as a guide for adding your own specific pricing.

Product Detail Page
The Basic Settings tab contains all of the general information about a product. Name, description, income account, COG account, and more.

TIP: Skip the other info tab for now.
For the detailed Pricing Template article - click here There are three main sections to the Pricing Template section. Attributes, Required Pricing options and Items to be charged
Attributes are the inputs or variables that are used to determine the price of a labor rate, machine rate, or material.
Required Pricing options
Required Pricing Options show up as drop down fields when adding new items to quotes, sales orders, and invoices.
Use Required Pricing Options any time that you want the choice of different Materials, Labor Rates, or Machine Rates.
For our **Screen Printing - Apparel **product, these are your different imprint locations.
Clicking SHOW button will show Acceptable Items for that Option
Items to be charged
Items to be charged are added behind the scenes.
You don't have to remember to add these - shopVOX does it for you.
Custom Fields section is used to gather additional information about a product, when you add it to the quotes and orders; that are not integral to pricing the product.
In our Screen Printing - Apparel product, Custom Fields are used to add our choice of ink colors.
How does Pricing work for this product?
Pricing is based on the sum of the following parts.
- Apparel Items
- **Screen Printing **
- Screen Charges
Since this product uses a Pricing Template, your customer will only see a single price for all these components, not the itemized charges for each screen, imprint location, and shirt.
ie. T-Shirt - $5 ea
The formula used to calculate the price for your apparel is:
Cost from Your Supplier * (1-Markup) = Apparel Price
The pricing for each location of screen printing is based on a grid format.
In the example, Screen Printing is setup as a Labor Rate.
We've included Screen Charges as part of the pricing template for this product. This means that the price for screen charges will be amortized or spread evenly across the final price for each shirt.
In the example, Screen Charges are setup as a Labor Rate.
TIP: If you wish to show your customers the price for the Screen Charges, remove Screen Charges from the template, and add them as a separate Line Item on quotes and orders.
