Adding Pricing Formulas in RepairLink

KB Article #1340

Repair facilities get tremendous value from seeing the accurate prices for parts. This can be easily calculated if the pricing formulas used by your dealership are set up and assigned to the shop’s account. Note: Shops cannot change pricing, only dealers can change pricing.

The following pricing formulas can be applied:

  • Matrix Pricing (U.S. Only): Matrix pricing formulas help maintain your dealership's overall profit margins for select manufacturers. These pricing "escalators" can be used to add specific dollar or percentage increases to the list price for a part. (Click here for more information on adding matrix pricing.)
  • Default Pricing Formula: If a shop does not have a specific pricing formula assigned, or when a new trading partner is added in the Trading Partner Configuration, your default pricing formula is automatically applied to an order. (Click here for more information on setting the default pricing formula.)
  • Trading Partner Formulas: Create formulas based on List, Cost, or Trade and apply the formula to specific shops. (Click here for more information on creating trading partner formulas.)
