How do you apply upcharges for XXL and bigger?

How do I price products in Printavo that are 2XL and above?

Step 1:

Search for and select the product you'd like to quote. It's crucial to select the product by clicking on it so Printavo knows to associate pricing with your product.

Note: If the product is not actively selected, the pricing matrix will calculate a $0 cost and underquote your customer. More on this in Step 7.

Step 2: 

Ensure you have the appropriate size columns for your job using the column manager (i.e., the circle with the 3 dots). 

Note: The column manager is available only on the Premium and Standard tiers of Printavo. Lite plan users will need to head to My Account > Customize Your Line Items to set default sizes across the board.

Step 3:

Duplicate the line item for every price-specific size grouping. In other words, you'll want to have a line item for base sizes (XS-XL), one line item for 2XL, one for 3XL, etc.

Step 4:

Enter your quantities per line item/price grouping.

This process allows for accurate quantity-based pricing while simultaneously appropriately pricing the larger-sized garments. You'll also be transparent with your customers that larger sizes incur more of a cost.

Step 5:

Use the "Imprint" modal to select the pricing matrix/matrices you would like to use for the product. Be sure to click "Refresh Pricing" to apply the matrix/matrices.

Because you've separated the line items and sizing within the line item group, you will be accurately quoting your customer based on quantity breaks and sizing.

Step 6:

Be done, or repeat as necessary! 

Step 7:

What just happened? 

To calculate pricing, Printavo runs the following formula:

GARMENT COST * YOUR MARKUP + YOUR PRODUCTION COST

Let's break this down:

GARMENT COST: Because you selected your product with an associated pricing group in Step 1, duplicated that product in Step 3, and applied quantities to that product in Step 4, Printavo has an accurate garment cost to insert into the formula. 

YOUR MARKUP + YOUR PRODUCTION COST: These values are established and customized in your pricing matrix. Click here to learn how to use pricing matrices.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To reiterate, if a product is not actively selected in Step 1 and is merely typed into the line item field, Printavo will read the garment cost as $0 and, as a result, provide an undercharged quote to your customer.

How?

Let's use an example of 100 shirts at $2.50 garment with a 50% markup and $3 production cost.

IF THE PRODUCT IS ACCURATELY SELECTED:

QUOTED COST = GARMENT COST * YOUR MARKUP + YOUR PRODUCTION COST

QUOTED COST = ($2.50 * 1.5) + $3

QUOTED COST = $3.75 + $3

QUOTED COST = $6.75 per unit

FINAL QUOTE = $675

IF THE PRODUCT IS NOT SELECTED:

QUOTED COST = GARMENT COST * YOUR MARKUP + YOUR PRODUCTION COST

QUOTED COST = ($0 * 1.5) + $3

QUOTED COST = $0 + $3

QUOTED COST = $3 per unit

FINAL QUOTE = $300

  • The pricing on line item #1 would have been the 2XL catalog price not the S-XL catalog price. You'd want to get a quote on 300 S-XL's first. Then add the $2 on top of that. The video makes it look more simple than it is.
