The system processes an order based on the Supplier and Item combinations. For example, purchasing instructions can be defined for a supplier so that each time an order is entered; the system retrieves the price for that supplier. Supplier prices, catalogs, price rules, and discount rules are setup to manage each supplier’s prices and discounts apply to the orders.

The price paid for an item might differ depending on the supplier and whether a discount applies to the item. For example, one supplier might charge $1.00 for an item while another supplier might charge $1.25 for the same item. Supplier prices are tracked in catalog. A catalog is a group of items along with the price for each item. Each catalog is unique to a supplier. All of the items purchased from a supplier can be entered in one catalog, or multiple catalogs can be created to classify a supplier’s items by seasonal changes, different product lines, and so on. Also there are some suppliers that give a discount for an item based on the quantity purchased. These discounts can be applied by creating a price rule and attaching it to the item and supplier to which it pertains.

If item prices are entered for a supplier without specifying the name of a catalog, the system automatically creates a default catalog for the supplier. Default catalogs can be used if only one catalog for each supplier needs to be maintained.

A supplier might charge a different price for the same item depending on the time of year that the item is purchased. For example, the same calendar might cost $10.00 in January and $5.00 in October. The same item can be entered at a different price in multiple catalogs, with different effective dates for each price.
