The edition record’s Prices & version tab stores list price and unit cost information about each edition.
When sales records are created; via a sales import or are manually entered, the software uses the “default version” values if the import file does not specify these values.
Published retail price is also known as the manufacturer’s suggested retail price or MSRP. Royalties can be based on the MSRP.
Published dealer price can be the basis of royalty calculations. The published dealer price is the wholesale price.
Unit cost (home currency) is used by the software to calculate the cost of sales (quantity sold x unit cost) associated with each title if the sales import file does not specify the cost of sales. You can create a royalty rule for below cost sales. Many companies do not pay royalties on below cost sales (Sales – Cost of sales < 0).
Version reference is the name assigned to a specific price. If a version reference is included in a sales import file the software will use the values for that version; MSRP and unit cost, as the default values.
Default version check box determines which version is referenced for the default values. Only one version can be specified as the default version.
