How to set up item purchase discounts in Business Central?

It is possible to define line discounts per item per vendor in Business Central and that is set up either from the vendor card or from the item card.

This is what happens in the video

And we can start looking here at the vendors.

And the purchase discount is a percentage from the purchase price that we can define from the vendor table on the item table, so if I take my vendor number 80,000 here.

Go into navigate, purchases, I have line discounts in here.

And I can see for instance, on this vendor here, on item number 1110 I have a line discount of 15%.

Starting from the 1st of June if we buy at least 50,000.

On the other hand, on sorry on item number 1120.

If I buy at least 150 Thousand, my line discount is 10 and there’s no starting date.

So it’s possible to define that line discounts in here.

And line discounts, will be put upon the purchase price.

If we also define specific purchase prices.

So this is how we see it from the vendor list.

I could also have the same item, or the same data from the item list.

We can go to the spokes, and check out the Purchase, oh sorry, the purchase prices here and the special discounts and we can see here in the same line, the same data and if a change it here Of course, it will be changed because it’s the same data we’re viewing.

This is the way of setting up discounts specifically per vendor, per item.
