Delivery Add-Ons
Do you frequently charge extra for some delivery services? For example, perhaps you charge extra for stairs, for hand-carrying items, heavy items, after-hours, extra trucks, or holiday deliveries. (If you aren’t, you should consider it! Your time is valuable!) Or maybe you do charge for these but always forget! Automate this process by using the Delivery Add-On feature in Alert. This features allows the salesperson to be prompted while writing the ticket to charge extra for these extra items.
First, create a sales item – we typically suggest DELADDONS. When creating the sales item, mark it as Not For Sale. Next, in the edit pull-down, select Related Sales Items and add the additional charges that could apply for deliveries.
In Codes & Setup, go to Store Parameters > Availability/Party an put the sales item that you just created as the delivery addons header.
In the ticket, when the delivery is set in the time box, Alert will go to the sales item screen and show the list of related items to add to the ticket. Simply select the appropriate one and voila! You’ve recouped your labor costs and didn’t have to remember a thing!
