Currently, mintsoft has 4 methods to calculate pick and pack pricing:
- Per order line
- % of Order
Carton Pick Charging!
Carton charging only works on the "peritem" picking charging model
We can also setup slight variations on this, by charging different rates for carton picks as opposed to picking individual units (you need to specify carton QTY's on the product level for this to work).
You can also specify a number of picks that get included in a standard pick.
So far example if you set the standard amount to 10 units - we will treat every 10 units as one pick charge.
Perskuperunit works by charging for every additional SKU picked and every single unit picked, as well as adding a flat charge for the order regardless of the amount of items.
Per Order Charge = £0.75
Per SKU Charge = £0.25
Per Unit Charge = £0.10
If you have 5 different SKU’s, and 5 units of each SKU – so that is 25 total units.
The system will charge:
1 x £0.75
5 x £0.25
25 x £0.10
Total = £4.50
To setup this example, you would go to Client - Edit - Picking Costs and enter the pricing like this:
Per item is just a flat rate for every additional item added to the order.
It will charge a rate for the first item and then for every additional subsequent item after that.
So if you have 5 SKU's and 5 units of each SKU again - 25 units in total.
1st item = £0.75
Additional items = £0.10
The system would charge:
1 x £0.75
24 x £0.10
Total = £3.15
You would set the system up like this:
Percentage method just takes a percentage of the total order value received
So if the order value is £100, with percentage value of 0.5% - you would receive pick charge of £5.
This method only produces one charge for each SKU line on the order, and it ignores how many units there are in total.
So if you have an order with 5 SKUS, with 5 units each – again 25 units in total.
It will only charge for 5 x £0.50 for each SKU pick.
Also if you have 1 SKU, but 100 units – again it will only charge 1 SKU pick fee so 1 x £0.50
This pricing concept is ideally used for very, very small items – so a worker can go to a pick bin location and pickup 50-100 units in one go without having to keep going back to get more.
So the client believes it should only be one charge per pick from the bin location.
Pick Price Over-Ride (product level)
For product pick over-rides, if you set a pick price over-ride value on the product level – this will over-ride the client default level price.
So if the client default pick price is £1.00, but the product level override price has been set to £2.00 – the system will charge £2.00 when that product is picked.
The product override pick costs are meant for when your client has either introduced very easy to pick items or very hard to pick items that should be charged a different price to their default rate.
Because it either involves a lot more labour or much less labour time than their normal associated pick operation.
For example your client could sell mobile phones as their normal product this would be charged their normal client rate of £1.00. But if your client decides to also sell large televisions, and it requires 2 workers to pick the unit up and move - then you can set an over-ride price on the television to charge £2.00 for the pick - instead of £1.00.
