Level pricing is a free commercial module which is available to be installed starting from MP29 (Maintenance Pack).
This module provides an infrastructure to define different prices for products based on the quantity of items that are included in the line.
Remember, this module by itself just provides the infrastructure to define prices but doesn't implements any pricing strategy.
Separated modules will implement specific strategies which will be selected for each product.
Below you can find a list with the available strategies:

A level is just a entity to identify by a name and description the meaning of that level. For example, if a store applies different prices when a entire box is sold then one of the levels will be BOX.
Initially BOX will define a quantity. Because the quantity of items stored in a box changes depending on the product that the quantity can be changed when the price is defined.
Working with levels to define prices
In this section are presented the things that you need to know in order to configure prices using levels.
Level Pricing ranges (Window)
In this windows levels are defined with its name and quantity.
As explained above, remember that the quantity defined in this window is just the default value for each level. It can be changed when the final price for this level is defined for each product.
To find this new field, we must have at least one pricing strategy installed, otherwise this field never will be shown. (Neither the subtab analyzed in the next chapter)
This field is part of the subtab product price in price list window. (price list -> price list version -> product price). It allows user to define a pricing strategy for a specific product. The available strategies will be shown in that combo.
Level Product Price (Sub Tab)
This subtab will appear below Product price when this product is working with a pricing algorithm different of the standard.
In this tab the prices for the created levels are created. These levels was created previously through the window Level Pricing ranges.
