You can specify a reference margin to calculate the retail price of an item by using the market cost, when an item is received by an EDI process or a manually-received purchase order. When you set a reference margin, you will maintain a constant margin on an item as the market cost fluctuates.

For example, if the retail price of one item is based on a market cost of $10 and a reference margin of 50%, the retail price will be $20. If an EDI process updates the market cost to $20, the retail price will change to $40.

You can specify different reference margins to calculate the prices for one item and for other quantities (known as quantity price discounts or price levels).
