A PriceLevel is used to specify custom pricing.
The PriceLevel component may be used to specify custom pricing for specific customers, however you must have QuickBooks 2005 or greater to use Price Levels. Once you create a price level for a customer, QuickBooks will automatically use the custom price in new invoices, sales receipts, sales orders or credit memos for that customer (you can override this automatic feature, however, when you create the invoices, sales receipts, etc).
With QBXMLVersion set to "4.0" or higher, users can now specify a price level (either added with this component or through QuickBooks) on line items in the following components: Invoice, SalesReceipt, CreditMemo, and SalesOrder. Please see those components for more information.
Required Fields (Add): PriceLevelName, PriceLevelFixedPercentage.
Supported Methods: Add, Update, Get (Id), Cancel, Delete
PriceLevel1.PriceLevelName = "Employee Discount" PriceLevel1.FixedPercentage = "-15.0" PriceLevel1.Add()
Price Levels may also be added on a per-item basis using the Items property. However, this functionality is only supported in the Premier and Enterprise editions of QuickBooks 2005 and greater.
The PriceLevel component supports a variety of other operations as well. The component's Get, Update, Cancel, and Delete methods may be used to retrieve, modify, cancel, and delete PriceLevels, respectively. The ObjSearch Component may be used to search for PriceLevels in the QuickBooks database.
