If you ship full cartons for your customers, you can setup the system to charge by a carton amount instead of individual units.
E.g. you ship 1 x carton of 50 units, instead of the system charging 50 x unit picks, it will charge 1 x carton pick.
Enable Carton Charging
First step is to enable carton charging for the client(s).
Go to Clients > Overview > Search for client & then hit Actions > Edit
Then go to the Picking Cost tab and enable the carton picking cost toggle:
Just beneath that you can set the carton pick rate you want to charge for each carton, you can set the same amount for 1st and additional cartons, or set different amounts.
You can also over-ride these values on a product level (if, for example some cartons are much bigger / smaller than others), this is covered in the product section below.
Setting Up Products for Carton Picking Costs
Next, you need to add a carton qty to each product so that the system knows how many units are in a carton.
You can do this manually by going to Products > Overview > Actions > Edit
And then going to the Extra Details tab:
You can set multiple carton qtys, if the product is in an inner and outer carton for example.
You can also upload carton qtys in bulk using the product upload sheet found in Products > Extras > Upload Products
Again, you can enter multiple qtys of carton qtys using a comma list:
You can also set an individual carton picking cost for each SKU, which would over-ride the client default default carton pricing.
Pick charge when order contains cartons and units
If an order contains an amount of a product that does not equal a carton size, then the system will charge the difference as a unit pick fee.
E.g. Carton size is 10, but order ships 11 units - the system will charge 1 x carton pick fee and 1 x unit pick fee.
