SliQ Invoicing includes an optional margin calculator. When enabled, the calculator allows you to specify a profit margin on the cost price of your products or services. When you then edit a cost price, SliQ will automatically calculate the sales price for the product.

 

To enable the margin calculator, do the following:

 

Ensure the Products & Stock Control tab is showing in SliQ and then press the Options button in the toolbar.

 

product-discounts-options

 

SliQ will then display the Options dialog.

 

If the Products & Stock Control tab is not showing in the dialog (see the picture below), use the arrows on the top right to switch to the correct option tab.

 

product-discounts-options-tab

 

Check the Enables Sales Margin Calculator box to enable the calculator.

 

Then press the Margin Calculator button to configure the calculator.

The margin can be specified as a percentage, e.g. 20% or an offset from the cost price for a product.

 

You can optionally use the Rounding fields to make more presentable sales prices,  For example, if your cost price for a product is 24.99 and you specify a margin of 20%, your un-rounded price would then be 27.49. However, if you like selling products at prices ending in .99 then you can specify the rounding as Round up to the nearest 1.0 - 0.01 which will then give a final sales price of 27.99.
