Primary vs. Dual Pricing

Equitrac uses the primary price list to calculate the actual transaction cost. Secondary price lists (Dual Pricing) enable the software to calculate another cost that is stored with the transaction for reporting purposes, but does not factor into any balance calculations.

You create all price lists from the Price lists link. However, if you intend to use secondary price lists, you should factor that into your planning.

As an example, you can configure primary pricing to charge the user for a print transaction, but use the secondary price list to track the cost your company pays to the printer leasing company for the job (many lease contracts stipulate a base cost per page). You could create secondary price lists for each device that reflect the actual costs to operate, then assign both primary and secondary price list to each device as needed.
