Pricing by ID vs pricing by $

Post by Hang It » Sun 19 Jan, 2014 11:52 am

Just starting...... I made up a moulding table with moulding A priced at $3/m. For a 400 x 500 frame, it came to $61.20. But after rt clicking, to change the way it prices, I put in a cost of $3, and the frame came out at $15.40. So I put in a cost of $39 and the frame came out to $20.30. I know it's recommended to use the first way, but I'm trying to work out what ive done wrong.

Within EstLite don't think of it as "Pricing by ID vs pricing by $" the comparison would be more accurately described as
"Pricing by ID vs pricing by ¢"

EstLite is much happier when the cost price of mouldings are entered in cents (or pence if you are in the UK).
