Greetings from LumenSoft,

As you know, Candela is catering to different retail verticals, and each retail business has its own specific requirements that have to do with the kind of products it sells. Candela, being a complete retail management system, has special features for each retail industry. Our product upgrades also keep introducing new features to make retail simple for the type of business you deal in. 

For example, a few releases back we introduced the feature of region wise default supplier for our pharmacy customers. Now we have further enhanced this feature plus added a new feature for pharmacy retailers, and you can read about them below. 

Our candela upgrades take into account the feedback and requirements of our customers. Many of you asked for some special features on the sales and return screen. You asked for it, and we have done it! Learn more about them in the ‘It’s New’ section.

A Quick Refresher about Changing Retail Price 

Candela gives you the option to develop a future pricing strategy. For instance, if you want to increase your retail price after one month, you can enter the future date (the date from which the new price will become applicable), specify the new price, and save it in the system. On that particular date, the new price will be activated. You can do so on the Product Price tab. 

Configuration> Product Definition > Product Price

In the Start Date field enter the future date 

In the Price field, enter the price that you want to charge from the specified date onwards

Press Save. (Security>Group Rights > Configuration>Product Definition> Disable Update Retail Price)

You can change retail price on the GRN screen by adding percentage markup of the cost price:

• Bring the cursor in the Retail Price column and press F3. 

• A pop up window will appear. Enter percentage of the cost price you want to change the retail price by. 

System will calculate percentage of the cost price and add it to the cost price, the percentage plus cost price will become the new retail price. For example, if the cost price of a certain product is 60, and you entered 50 in the percentage column, the new retail price will become (60+ 30) = 90.

• Press Save .

Note: The short cut key (F3) will work if the retail price is checked as editable on the system configuration screen.

Configuration> System Configuration> Purchase

Enable Editable Retail Price Config checkbox should be checked.
