Creating Basic Print/Copy Price Lists

If you want to differentiate the price between black and white or color printing only, you can use a basic price list. If you require price lists that factor in finishing operations and page detail, you need to create Advanced price lists.

When you assign basic costs, Equitrac evaluate color characteristics per page. If the system detects any color in a given print job, it applies the color page cost to the color pages and the black and white cost to the rest.

To create a basic price list, do the following:

  1. In System Configuration, select Pricing, and then select Basic from the Add Price List drop-down list.
  2. Enter a Name and Description for the price list.
  3. Set a Page price for both Black and White and Color pages.
  4. Click Save.

Some print drivers may send color commands to non-color printers. To avoid incorrect color charges applied to black and white printing, set identical costs in both the Black and white costs and the Color costs.

To charge a reduced rate for multi-page print jobs, use the Next page fields to set page range pricing. Subsequent page prices are optional.
