Set a Minimum Charge and Minimum Price for an Item

A minimum charge makes sure that a minimum amount is always invoiced for the item. If the total sum exceeds the minimum charge, the normal item pricing applies. For example, if an item has a minimum charge of 45€ and a unit price of 30€, with a quantity of 1, the price is 45€ (minimum charge). For a quantity of 2, the price is 60 € (normal item price applies). The minimum charge does not affect any discount functionalities. 

A minimum price only affects discounts and does not allow the item to be discounted below the minimum price. The minimum price cannot be greater than the item's highest selling price.

The minimum price and charge settings are available for all item types, and they are department-specific. Handling and injection fees apply in addition to the minimum charge.

The minimum charge pricing is automatically applied when the item is used on treatment estimates, consultations, or counter sales. 

  1. Go to Settings > Department > Department settings > Enable minimum charge, prices and units.
  2. Go to Catalog > Items and add a new item or find and open the item you want to edit.
  3. Go to the Stock and pricing tab.
  4. In the Pricing section, add the minimum charge and price in the Minimum charge and Minimum price fields.
  5. Select Save.
