Note: If you have not set up the reference margin feature for a manual purchase order, the following steps will only work for an EDI item.

  1. Open Paladin Point of Sale.
  2. On the top ribbon, click the Inventory module.
  3. Find and view the item that you want to edit.

Note: To learn more, see this KBA:  How to use Advanced Lookup to find an inventory item

  1. Click the Pricing tab.
  2. In the Pricing Levels pane, in the Ref column, enter the reference margin percentage as a whole number without a percent sign.
  3. Depending on the store type, do one of the following:
    • Single-store: Make sure the Pricing Levels pane is NOT locked (padlock is open). In single-stores, if the Pricing Levels pane is locked, EDI and manual receiving processes cannot apply the reference margin or update the retail price.
    • Multi-store: Make sure the Pricing Levels pane is locked (padlock is closed). In multi-stores, the reference margin is only applied if the Pricing Levels padlock is closed (locked).
  4. On the bottom ribbon, click Save.
