Price (purchase)

In Profit, you can use different prices and record them at different levels. You specify a date dependency for all prices. Thus, future prices can be recorded.


Depending on the level at which a price or discount is recorded, Profit determines the priority of this price or discount when registering an order, goods receipt, reconciliation or invoice.

Level structure

The levels at which prices and discounts can be recorded are:

  • Basic price / Basic discount
  • Price list / Discount group
  • Purchase contact/creditor

Prices/discounts at the purchase contact/creditor level have the highest priority. After this, it is the price list and then finally the basic price which has the lowest priority.

Promotional prices and promotional discounts always have a higher priority than the 'normal' prices and discounts recorded at a particular level. Prices and discounts can be used independently of each other.  

Date dependent

You specify a date dependency for all prices and discounts. This means that a price or discount is only valid on a date that you specify. As a result you get insight into the history of your prices and discounts. You can also record future prices and discounts. Profit automatically retrieves the correct price and/or discount based on the date, purchase contact and the article you have entered.


You can add individual prices and discounts using a wizard. You can also maintain prices and discounts using the Profit entry program. You can use this to change multiple prices and discounts at the same time.

Collectively change

You can change the prices at the various levels collectively using an amount or a percentage. The collective change of cost prices and purchase prices also provides you with the option to make a change based on the average purchase price.

Recurring prices and discounts

It often happens that a discount recurs on a regular basis. For example, a bread that is on offer each Monday at a supermarket. You can add recurring promotional prices and discounts in Profit Order management.

Import and export

You can import purchase prices and discounts in Profit. You can use this option, for example, to import price lists from purchase contacts. You can also export data about prices and discounts quickly and easily to MS Excel.
