In this article we will be looking at how to create and maintain Classification pricing elements in Jiwa.
This article has been prepared using Jiwa v7.0.115, if you are running an earlier version of Jiwa 7 some functionality may not be available.
Before proceeding please ensure that you have reviewed our articles on special pricing in particular Jiwa Special Pricing - Price Schemes.
The Classification Matrix is used when creating pricing elements around Debtor and/or Inventory classifications. Prices apply to all inventory items contained within the selected Inventory classification, this is in contrast to the Debtor Specific, Debtor Classification and Debtor Price Group matrices which are inventory item specific.

When setting up your Classification Matrix the following should be taken into consideration.

The following example demonstrates a few different ways in which Classification price elements can be set up.
In this example pricing element 2 for Doors is applicable to all Debtors that purchase inventory items classified as doors because the Debtor Classification field has been left blank.
Whereas pricing element 4 is applicable to all inventory items that are purchased by Debtors classified as Trade - Level 1 as the Inventory Classification field has been left blank.
