Topic:   Price Breaks

I don't see where I can put in price breaks for each vendor. This is a big deal for costs and POs.

In the Item detail window - that's the window where you can edit item descriptions etc - you see a 'Suppliers' tab. Open that and you can create/edit the relationships with suppliers for that item. An item can have an unlimited number of suppliers with different supply criteria, prices, units of measure, lead times etc.

If you have multiple suppliers then the one at the top of the list is deemed to be the 'Default' supplier of that item. You can buy from any of the suppliers but it's the default supplier's price that is used when MiniMRP calculates Build Costs etc.

I forgot to mention something.
In my previous post I said that an item can have an unlimited number of suppliers. That's true. But, to answer your question:-

There can also be an unlimited number of variations for the same supplier.
So, using your example you'd just add the same supplier to the list 3 times. Then edit each entry for the different prices at different quantities.

[Price = $1] - [MinQty = 1]
[Price = $0.9] - [MinQty = 11]
[Price = $0.8] - [MinQty = 21]

You might also have different units of measure where a supplier can supply single items at one price or supply a small box at a different price and a bigger box at another different price. In these cases you enter the name for the uom such s "BOX" and a quantity per box and MiniMRP automatically calculates the price for single items. You purchase ONE BOX and when that box arrives from the supplier MiniMRP automatically increases the OnHand quantity of items based on the quantity contained inside the box.

There's other combinations I could rattle on for pages. Just give it a whirl and see how it works for you.

I'm interested in some clarification on this topic.

Your response suggests that MiniMRP does not do anything to automatically select the appropriate price break depending on how many you need to order, it will just always choose the supplier option that you have manually moved to the top of the supplier list. Have I understood that correctly? Or is there some additional functionality that I am missing?

Correct. It doesn't automatically select the best price break.

If you're adding items to a purchase order manually you'll have a little window where you're selecting items to add to the PO. That'll show all the breaks and you can select whichever you want.
