You can read about Lentune's rules for selecting which discount to use.

The two options for the Receivable Contract Method that can be selected to determine the priority of discounts to be used are:

  • Receivable Contract or Best, or:
  • Stock Contract or Best

Receivable Account Or Best

An individual Receivable Contract will always be used over any pricing in a Receivable Contract Group

Stock Or Best

Receivable contract on an individual Stock item will always beat a Receivable contract on Stock Group or Discount Group

Examples

Example 1: Receivable Contract discount beats the Receivable Account discount.

If there is a Receivable contract discount, that is used first in preference to the Receivable Account discount.

    • Receivable Contract has a discount of 5%, and
    • Receivable Account has a discount of 10%, then
    • the Receivable Contract discount of 5% is applied.

 

Example 2:  Discount Group discount beats the Receivable Contract discount 

If there is a Discount Group, that is used in preference to the Receivable Contract discount.

    • Receivable Contract has a discount of 10%, and
    • Discount Group has a discount of 5%, then
    • the Discount Group of 5% is applied.

    Example 3: No Receivable Contract discount and no Discount Group.

    If there is no Receivable Contract discount for the item, then the Receivable Account discount is used.
      • Receivable Contract discount does not exist, and
      • Discount Group discount does not exist, then
      • the Receivable Account discount is applied.

     

    Example 4: No Receivable Contract discount.

    If there is no Receivable Contract discount, and there is a Discount Group discount, the Discount Group discount will be used.
      • Receivable Contract discount does not exist, and

      • Discount Group discount is 5%, then

      • the Discount Group discount of 5% is applied.
