Custom price list


Running Sales using Price Books

The price Book option in Hike lets you upload 1 price list for each of your outlets if you would like to offer varying special pricing by outlet. Alternatively, you can group them (e.g., one price list for New York outlets and another for Ohio outlets) or simply upload a single price list for all outlets.

If you don’t already have the template ready, simply click on ‘Generate template’. This will allow you to select products you want to include in the list along with their retail pricing. Then edit the pricing in the downloaded template.

Setting up Price Books in Hike

Price Books option can be constrained to a certain customer group or an outlet while running a multi-outlet store and lets you have a different pricing list than normal as per your need.

Once you set up a price book, the pricing will automatically apply for eligible customers and outlets when you, or your staff, process a sale in the sell screen.

What can I use price books for?

  • Different Pricing for different outlets: Target pricing allows you to have varied prices as per your need and the location of the outlet. You can have one promotion price in one outlet and different promotions in another.
  • Treat Loyal customers better: Reward your loyal group of customers by assigning them to a customer group using the price Book and providing special prices making them feel special. Add your staff and VIPs for separate or same groups giving them additional discounts.
  • Special prices for customers would leave them buying more to get better discounts thus boosting your sales and happy customers in the end.
  • Take control of your loyalty program: assign specific loyalty points, e.g., 2X loyalty points to a group of customers, different loyalty points while on sale, or remove loyalty points in promotion as per your wish.
