Define Inbound/B2C/B2B Charges by Slab

 

Users can configure billing charges per slabs for Inbound order processing and B2C order Picking and Packing. This feature enables users to set different pricing structures based on specific slabs defined by quantity, volume, category, or weight.

 

With this enhancement, the system will calculate the charges for Purchase orders and B2C sales orders based on the configured slab pricing. Users will be able to view and track these charges in the billing report, providing transparency and accuracy in billing calculations.

 

Ex: If the user defines a slab for picking charges as 1 to 4 items at $10. With this configuration, the system applies a flat charge of $10 for the first 4 items in the slab. However, for any additional items beyond the fourth, separate charges will be automatically calculated, ensuring accurate billing down to the item level. 

 

1. Under "Inbound Billing charges", click on "Inbound Processing Charges".

This will provide an option to enter the minimum and maximum slab values along with the corresponding charges.


 














3. Users can add multiple slabs by clicking on the "Add" button.

  2. By Location Charges: The new "By Location" tab revolutionizes billing by allowing separate charges for pick face and pallet face locations. Occupied shelf count is used for accurate billing.
  3. By Weight Charges: Our "By Weight" tab factors in the weight of stored items, offering equitable charges based on each item's weight.
  4. By Category Charges: Introducing the versatile "By Category" tab, which lets administrators tailor charges using subtypes like "By CBM," "By Location," and "By Weight" for different product categories.

Define handling charges for B2B order.  

 

During the packing process, system automatically identifies the number of cartons added, while user can manually input the number of processed pallets. This captured carton and pallet information is utilized to accurately calculate handling charges, which seamlessly integrate into the billing report within the B2B billing module.

 

In addition, we have further enhanced the B2B order creation process by introducing a feature to capture container details on order creation. These parameters align with the ones collected during inbound billing. We've made this field optional, ensuring flexibility during order creation. User have the freedom to select the suitable container details for an order, with the corresponding amount seamlessly integrated into the B2B billing charges. This results in precise tracking of container-related costs throughout the billing process.
