You can now print quantity price break bin tags for items that offer lower prices for larger quantities (items with two or more pricing levels). If you print more than one normal-price bin tag for these items, the same number of quantity price break bin tags are also printed.

When you display your lower prices for larger quantities next to the normal price, you encourage customers to buy more.

You can print bin tags in the following ways:

  • Print to a desktop label printer from the Inventory or Reports modules from a terminal.
  • Print to a portable label printer from an RF unit.
  • Print using Paladin Point of Sale templates in Microsoft Access.

You can also print quantity price break shelf tags using Paladin Point of Sale templates for Microsoft Access.

We will explain the process for printing to desktop and portable label printers first, and then talk about how to use Microsoft Access.

How to print quantity price break bin tags using desktop and portable label printers

Whether you print bin tags from the Report module or from the Inventory module, a quantity price break bin tag is printed automatically after the normal price bin tag for each item with pricing levels.
