Trade Ins - How to?
I want to be able to do customer trade-ins but, as many know, LS has no such built-in functionality. So there seem to be a bunch of various work arounds. It seems the most common method is to:
*Have a generic, non-inventory item called Trade-In that gets added to a sales ticket with a negative value. That ticket is then paid out either in cash or store credit.
*A PO is then created with the actual items that were traded in to properly adjust and track inventory.
My concern with this is that it seems to double cost impact in the system. Once cause you are paying out to the customer, and then again when the PO gets accounted for. Am I wrong, here? Is there a better way of doing this?
Just trolling for ideas here!
