changing markup on single line items

Post by alantenan » Mon Oct 26, 2009 4:02 pm

So I have an alternate 1 buyout entry with my standard markup for buyout items. Then I have alternate 2 buyout entry to substitute a 50% less expensive product in lieu of alternate 1 . I don't want to give up 50% of my margin , can I have different entries (within a type or category) to have different markups?

I came up with a solution but was wondering if there is a safer, proper way to do this.

Well the solution you found is adequate for the moment. Our upcoming 2.20 release has a built in method for this. It's in beta a few companies now so it should be final released pretty soon. Of course there's a lot more to it than customizable markups but that is one of the things in the 220 release.
