Purchase Price Fields

Price fields are fields to support the information related to the global taxation, discounts, or adjustments that you want to apply on the net value of the purchase order.  Only numeric fields are supported.

There are no default fields added for the Price fields. Any custom value in the form of numerals can be configured.

To view the Purchase Price Fields page, navigate to Admin > Purchase Management > Purchase Price Fields.

Here, you can customize the form using the below options:

  1. Field Pallet: You can drag and drop the number field from the pallet to add into the form.
  2. Re-Order: You can drag and drop the fields to change the order of the form.
  3. Duplicate: You can create duplicate fields from the custom fields.
  4. Edit: You can edit the fields, show or hide them from purchase order, or change their characteristics.

Example Scenario: For example: Every purchase in an organization requires a tax addition as per government norms. This is the tax in the form of GST by which an addition of mentioned amount would get calculated and added along with the main purchase amount.


To add the Number custom field, drag and drop it on the form in the right-hand side, and a popup appears.
