Employee Discount - Price Rule Markup
I’m looking for some help or thoughts on creating an Employee Discount Price Rule.
We offer our employees a Staff Discount of Wholesale + 10%. The issue is that the Lightspeed Markup option when creating a Price Rule creates the markup off of the “Average Cost” that is showing in the system and not the “Default Cost”. For our shop, “Average Cost” is often less than Wholesale/Default Cost because of the earned discounts that we have with many of our suppliers. In this case the “Employee Discount” dollar amount that Lightspeed comes up is less than Wholesale.
Eg. A pair of pants has a wholesale of $50 but we have an earned discount of 20% with our supplier so we only pay $40 for them.
The Employee Discount should be $50 + 10% (Wholesale + 10%) = $55
But… Lightspeed uses the “Average Cost” in it’s calculation so it figures out the Employee Discount as $40 + 10% (Average Cost + 10%) = $44
So in this scenario the Employee pays $11 less than they should.
Is there a way to get Lightspeed to create a markup off of the “Default Cost” and not the “Average Cost” that the system calculates? Or does anyone know of a work around to get Lightspeed to use the system defined “Default Cost” in any sort of calculation?
I tried creating a Pricing Level and populating it with the Wholesale Cost of the items but Lightspeed won’t use a Price Level for a Markup, it seems programed to only use the “Average Cost” 😔
Any help would be much appreciated.
