Stop expensive mistakes with automated margins
The wholesale food industry is unpredictable by nature. Prices are always changing and it can be pretty hard to keep up. So it makes total sense that wholesalers find it hard to get an easy snapshot and keep on top of their margins.
All product prices (including negotiated prices) now have a margin percentage attached to them. So straight away you get an easy visual of what you’re making on each product, and spot pricing errors that are costing you money. Plus, you now only need to update your cost price – Fresho does the rest for you.
How does it work?
Make sure to keep your cost prices up to date to get the most out of this feature.
When you update your cost price, your level price or margin will automatically update. Simple as that. There are a couple of ways you can set this up:
1. Fixed Margin
When you go in and change the cost price, the level price will automatically update based on the fixed margin percentage that you’ve set for that product. This allows you to be absolutely sure of the margin you’re going to make – Fresho does it for you.
2. Fixed Level Price
When change the cost price, the level price will remain the same but the margin percentage will update to reflect the new cost price. This helps you keep your prices consistent but also stay informed on the margin you’re making per product.
Pro tip: you can also drill down into margins by product, and margins by customer in Data Mode.
