Scenario - there are a set of items that make up a kit.  there are several 5 variations options to these kits.  I have the list price in the inventory master set as the selling price for the individual parts so when I sell them seperately the price is correct.  When a customer purchases one of the specified kit combinations, the total price of that set of items is reduced.  Currently I have been doing this using work orders linked at the sales order line to create the kit various kits so that it will roll up the costs accurately.  I find the work order in this method to be cumbersome as I'm not really assembling anything, its just a collection of parts, so I am looking for a way to use the kit function where I can enter the kit on the sales order (Line ITem tab, Kit# field) and have it add all the items onto the order but ata reduced price to reflect the kit total.
 
If I sell an individual part to a customer, it should be at normal price.  Selling a kit to the same customer that includes the same part would be reduced slighlty to reflect the kit price.
 
Example:
Kit-Deluxe contain 5 items in the kit and as a kit sells for $100.  The five items have individual selling prices of $53, $26, $11, $4.50, $15.50.  So sold individually the sales prices total $110, but I advertise that if bought as a kit the price is $100 total.
 
I'm open to all ideas, but the concept would be to have it as automated as possible.  I currently am not utilizing price levels, all customers are at the same price level.

You could create a non-inventory item (service type), call it a discount, set a negative price for it (-$1), add discount to your kits specifying a discount amount in units (like 10 units for $10 discount per kit).

Well thats a neat idea.
So all the individual parts would be listed at their regular cost, then the kit discount part would display as a credit line of sorts.
The service item could be added as a component to the kit so that it would be added to the order automatically jsut like the real components.
I think I like this approach.
 
Thank you - two thumbs up!
