The adjustment method (also known as the application method in the forms-based UI) determines how the modifier applies the price adjustment. You can select from the following adjustment methods:
- Percent: Creates a percentage price adjustment on each unit based on the percentage entered in the Value field. For example, to apply a 10 percent discount, select percent as the adjustment method.
- Amount: Creates a fixed price adjustment on each unit using the amount entered in the Value field.
- Lumpsum: Creates a price adjustment for this lump sum amount on the entire line.
- New price: Overrides the selling price of this item and makes the new price (defined in the Value field) the new selling price. Creates a price adjustment for the difference between the list price and the new price.
The following table shows examples of how the pricing engine uses the adjustment method to calculate the extended selling price of an order line:
Lumpsum Adjustment Method with Group of Lines
When Lumpsum is selected as the adjustment method for a modifier line, the pricing engine creates a price adjustment for the defined lumpsum amount. The lumpsum can be based on group quantity (sum of item quantities) or an item amount (a monetary amount).
Two examples are provided to compare how the lumpsum amount is calculated if either 1) Group Quantity or 2) Item Amount is selected.
The following Discount list modifier is used in each example.
