Price Rules Overview 

Price Rules are essential mechanisms that establish the selling price of parts within your store. These rules are based on specific pricing strategies, such as marking up the cost price. For instance, if a part has a cost price of $100 and your store implements a pricing rule of Cost+20%, the final selling price of that part will be $120. This method ensures that your pricing stays consistent, competitive, and profitable across all your sales channels.

In this guide, you'll learn how to set up and manage these OEM price rules effectively, ensuring that your pricing strategy aligns with your business goals and market dynamics.
