The Add Freight window at the conclusion of a PO Receive event can now accept NEGATIVE freight amounts. Why, you ask? Some stores receive a discount on purchases they don’t want recorded as the Last Cost or Market Cost of the item. With the expansion of this feature, we suggest you combine all your freight costs, discounts, markups, markdowns and marksideways into a single amount to adjust all costs on your received purchase order.
The function of the freight costs is unchanged. A separate receiving event occurs for every line on the received PO that reports in the SOH history viewer AND updates Avg Cost with the true (final) received cost.
Caution: Paladin does not recommend negative freight amounts as a best practices procedure. We see value in the Last Cost of any item actually being the last cost.
