New Version of Magaya Software includes New Pricing Features


The Magaya Development Team has been working on new features and enhanced some existing features to improve Magaya software for you. Check out these features that are designed to help you set prices for inventory, manage taxes and currency exchange rates, and to see Sales Order details in a new way:

  • New way to manage inventory pricing: To ensure you make a profit on every item you sell, even when offering discounts to your customers, set up the Pricing Tier Rules and apply them with this new feature. Also set prices for volume sales, apply prices to groups of customers, set up a sale timeframe for a holiday, or create increments such as "Buy 2, Get 1 Free."
  • Learn More

  • New and improved tax features: Now you can tell your Magaya system to withhold sales taxes so you can retain them to pay the tax authority. See the new way to group taxes, define if one tax depends on another, and how to change a tax rate. See examples for Mexico, Canada, Colombia and Ecuador:
  • See Examples Here

  • Currency exchange rates improved: This improvement saves a history of past exchange rates used in your Magaya system. Just check the box in the Configuration menu, and then you can enter a previous exchange rate in the Currency List. Then the currency rates can be used in operations transactions such as liquidating a shipment, and they can be used in accounting transactions.

  • Sales Order improvements: Now you can view details and a summary so you can edit a group of items in a Sales Order.

Magaya Knowledgebase Search Tips:

Magaya is creating a searchable knowledgebase. Currently the Knowledgebase is in beta, which means it’s still being improved. For example, in this first version of it, the search will only find the exact word you type such as “invoices.” It does not find related words such as “invoice” versus “invoicing”, so you must enter exact keyword you want to find.

A search example: if you search for a keyword such as “withholding”, the Results list will include the tax example topics and the main “Sales Taxes” topic. The best choice is the “Sales Taxes” topic. When you click on the “Sales Taxes” topic, you will need to scroll down in that topic to the section on Withholding. It does not open to the exact section.

To use the Magaya Knowledgebase to search for other topics, we recommend the Google Chrome Internet browser for the optimal experience. Try it

We’re looking for feedback on our new beta Knowledgebase. Send an email to info@magaya.com.

Thank you!
