In addition to the base data defined for the packaging material, you need to specify packaging-material-fee base data, and you need to set up packaging-material-fee license numbers for your customers to calculate fees and print reports.
Define packaging material fees
For each type of material, define the period of validity, price per material, currency, and unit.
Set up customer packaging-material-fee license numbers
If the customers pay the packaging material fees, specify the customers' packaging-material-fee license numbers in the form. When a license number has been assigned to a customer, the packaging material fees are calculated automatically when sales orders are invoiced. After invoicing, the check box is cleared in the form because you do not need to calculate and print a report. You can choose to print the packaging material weights on the invoice and inform the customers that they pay the fees.
If your company pays the packaging material fees, do not fill in the customer license numbers. After invoicing, the check box is selected in the form, which indicates that the fees are calculated when the report is created. You can choose to print the weights on the invoice and indicate that your company pays the fees.
Print packaging material weights on invoices
You can choose to print the packaging material weights and indicate who pays the packaging material fees on the invoice. The weights are summarized per packaging code.
