RepZio is pleased to announce a powerful new feature that lets you create custom Surcharges inside RepZio across our entire platform.
What can you do with Custom Surcharges?
Let's walk through a recent use case that drove the implementation of this new feature: Tariffs imposed by China in various home goods manufacturing sectors will add a new cost for a buyer.
Let's say RepZio's lighting division sources products from China which are currently subject to a new tariff, but we also source products from the states or other countries that do not. We can easily set up a PER PRODUCT cost associated with the tariffed product that comes from China.
This lets us:
- Clearly delineate the cost of the product from the imposed tariff and
- Shows which products the tariffs apply to
- Gives our customer a clear view of why their cost is rising and gives them complete transparency into what the real cost is of the product
This was a major concern for a lot of B2B buyers as they want to make sure any newly introduced costs & tariffs are not simply passed on forever, even if tariff's go away.
How do I set up Custom Surcharges?
Surcharges are calculated on a property you assign from each product, a good option would be to populate a cost using one of our product UDF's.
Once this data is ready and populated on products in our system, create the surcharge in the web manager. (https://manage.repzio.com/surcharges)
Give your surcharge a name and lets us know which field to calculate the surcharge on, click add and that is it!
Now you have created your Surcharge...what's next?.
It will async to the iPad app the next time you push data live. Surcharges will calculate automatically and be displayed on the order submission screen. ( shown below )
The Surcharges will also be available on the Order in any receipts that go out and in the web manager. The additional line item for Surcharges will ONLY BE SHOWN IF the Order contains a Product that has a Surcharge, otherwise, everything will remain the same.
