Dumpster Rental Systems has added the ability to add a line item charge to a customer’s invoices based off of an Order Option. This feature is called "Charge by Option Unit". Once an order option is created, the blank box is used to enter in a numeric value.
The Option Unit adjustment has a "Minimum Unit" value, which indicates free or included units. If the numeric input is larger than the Minimum Unit, the “Unit Cost” times the numeric difference is applied to the customer’s invoice.
Creating an Order Option
Create an Order Option in Admin > Order Config > Order Options. This Order Option places a blank box under each order number in the CRM, or “Customers” tab, asking for the number of tires. Notice that the “Group” is “CRM - Event”, which places this box on each order within the CRM.
Creating the Adjustment
“Charge by Option Unit” is available as an option under Admin > Rules > General Rule Sets > Adjustments.
The “Field Name” must match the exact name of the “Order Option”
“Minimum Unit” indicates the limit before the cost applies.
The “Unit Cost” indicated the price that is multiplied by the number input in the Order Option.
“Cost Description” shows the verbiage that appears on the Invoice.
Using the above configuration, a “3” was placed into the “Tire Charge” box. Therefore, the equation is [Order Option Input - Minimum Unit] x Unit Cost, or (3 - 0) X $10:
If, for example, a customer was allowed one (1) free tire disposal, then the equation would be:
[Order Option Input - Minimum Unit] x Unit Cost
(3 - 1) X $10 = $20
Decimal use is allowed within the Order Option. This feature has a lot of varying functionality depending on your needs. You could use this feature to charge per pound for food items, for dumpster tonnage, ticket sales within an event, etc.
