# Understanding Pricing Strategies in YoPrint

#### In this article

YoPrint has 3 different Pricing Strategies to choose from:

- Price Jobs Separately
- Price Jobs Together
- Price by Service Location

Let’s look at their differences

## Price Jobs Separately vs. Price Jobs Together

These strategies are best illustrated with the following example:

Say there are 2 jobs in an order.

Job A has 100 products

Job B has 101 products

Let’s say you have the following pricing matrix set up:

100 products and below: $15 per product

101 products and above: $10 per product

If you use **Price Jobs Separately**, the 100 **products in Job A are priced at $15 per product**, and the 101 **products in Job B are priced at $10 per product**. The total for the entire order ends up being $2510

If you use **Price Jobs Together**, the products in **both jobs are priced at $10 per product**. This is because the number of products adds up to 201, which exceeds the 101 products needed for the pricing matrix to price items at $10. Therefore, the pricing ends up being $10 per product, and the total for the order is $2010.

## Price by Service Location

Price by Service Location is based on the number of prints in one location. It’s useful when there are different designs that will be printed in the same location.

Let’s use this pricing matrix as an example:

Quantity is 1: $10 per product

Quantity is 2: $5 per product

And let’s say that an order has three jobs.

Job A: 1 Print on Front (Design A), 100 products

Job B: 1 Print on Front (Design B), 100 products

Job C: 1 Print on Back (Design C), 100 products

In this order, line items in **Job A and Job B **will have a **$****5 service fee** per product because there are 2 prints in the same location (i.e., Quantity is 2). The total for Job A and Job B would be $500 each - or $1000 total for both jobs.

On the other hand, **Job C** will have a **$10** **service fee** per product because there is only 1 print/service location (i.e., Quantity is 1). The total for Job C would be $1000

**If you’re using Price by Service Location, please** **don’t use any services with an Additional/Secondary Matrix configured**. Price by Service Location is incompatible with Additional Matrices and will result in inaccurate calculations.
