One comment I'll make is that the (Advanced) pricing inquiry function 22/OEA
"Pricing Enquiry by Customer/Item" doesn't give correct information in some
cases.  We've reported this to the JBA Help Desk and until now they've
categorized it as low priority (meaning it will probably never get fixed).
It has resulted in us giving occasional incorrect answers to customers.
We're planning on fixing it ourselves.  I believe there is another bug when
products sold at no charge are returned using the Customer Returns module.

For us, Advanced pricing provides much needed flexibility and we haven't
experienced any performance problems although we have relatively few order
lines per order (typically < 10).  I can imagine that with complex pricing
rules that are a possibility and an order with lots of line items on a
smaller box that you would have AOE performance problems (see another thread
about this).  Bottom line though, is that we couldn't have effectively used
JBA without the Advanced Pricing option.

If you have more specific questions about Advanced Pricing, I'll attempt to
answer them.

Subject: Advanced pricing


We are considering implememting Advance Pricing in AO but have not ben able
to speak to anyine at JBA who knows very much about it.  Does anyone on the
list use advanced pricing or know what likely effect there will be on the
order entry process in terms of performance.  Is there anything else to
consider when implementing advanced pricing?

The business has about 20 people taking phone orders all day long with up to
1000 orders a day being processed.
