In Item Pricing, there are two main types (price tab), i.e. Base Price and Sale Price. 'Base Price' is the one being picked for everywhere (OE & IC). What's the use of 'Sale Price'.

Surprised that couldn't get it related after doing many testings. Help content is not in any assistance for this case.

Use 'Sale Price' when the item is on sale, you need to enter dates for 'Sale Starts' and 'Sale Ends'.
If you don't have sales then ignore the 'Sale Price'
Press F1 for Help, following is copied from the Help screen:

You use this field differently depending on your choice for Sale Price Type. If you selected:

Sale price for a single unit of measure
Enter a sale price for the item if you are including sale prices on price lists.

Note: You can also calculate the sale price using a cost as a starting point, and edit the calculated amount in this field. To do so, click the Zoom Zoom button button and fill in the fields on the screen that appears. Note that you must fill in a location for the cost, and you must click the Proceed button when finished to return the calculated sale price to the Sale Price field, where you can edit it.

Sale prices for multiple units of measure
If you are entering sale prices for multiple units of measure, click the Zoom Zoom button button to display the screen for entering multiple units.

You must also specify the default UOM and price if specifying several sale prices.

Note: In Order Entry, when you specify the unit of measure for an order detail, Order Entry checks to see if you defined a price for the specified UOM. If you did not define a price for the specified UOM, Order Entry will use the default pricing UOM.

The default pricing UOM is in effect only if the order UOM does not match a defined pricing UOM.

If you specify a price for the stocking unit, I/C Shipments will automatically use it as the default.

Sale price calculated using a cost
If you are calculating the sale price from a cost, click the Zoom Zoom button button, and then:

Specify whether to base the price on a single unit of measure.
Click the Zoom button beside the Sale Price field to display the Default Sale Price screen.
Specify:
Whether to add a percentage or an amount to the cost.
The type of cost.
The percentage or amount to add.
The exchange rate if a multicurrency database.

Thank you Etienne,

Though I set up 'Sale Start' 'Sale End' dates, still system picks the Base price.

Nowhere 'Sale Price' has an effect. Is it a bug?

No bug, you're doing something wrong. This is basic stuff that has been working for ages.

Hi dan-zill, I'm also facing the same issue with regards to non-impact of 'Sale Price' value even after entering the start/End dates in the system.

Did you find a solution for the same?

Your base price is lower than your sale price.

Lets see the screenshot of the Discounts tab.

that's where you are missing it, on the Discounts tab you then select "Selling Price based on"- choose your desired option be it markup on markup cost or markup on average cost
put the markup percentages on those ABC...rows
make sure the customer you select in OE, the AR Customer type corresponds to those ABC rows. by default its base, change it to A then go make a sale

thank me later

You need a session date within the range you set for the Sale.
