Once you have set up upfront pricing formulas in CollisionLink, shops that you have added as Trading Partners will be able to see upfront pricing for the OEM equivalents of the non-OE parts on any new estimates they import into CollisionLink Shop.
Note: If you make changes to your upfront pricing formulas after the shop has clicked View Upfront Pricing, the shop will see the following warning message and need to click Refresh to proceed.
With upfront pricing, shops you can do business with can immediately accept your upfront pricing for a part by selecting Accept OEM. The shop's decision on purchasing OE parts as an alternative to aftermarket parts is can be seen in the Buyer Request column of the Upsell Parts section in CollisionLink:
- Quote--The shop is expecting a quote for the alternative OE parts. Your quote is indicated in the Sell Price column.
- OEM Accepted--The shop has accepted the Upfront Price for the OE part and wants to order it. The Upfront Price the shop is expecting to pay is displayed in the Sell Price column and cannot be changed.
- Do not process--The shop does not need this part line fulfilled.
All other aspects of quotes with upfront pricing can be processed as normal.
