Beacon Price Lists


Set Up Product List (default pricing) First

In order to create a Beacon price list, you need to have a populated product list with default pricing created first. This is covered in the Level 2 setup guide. Learn more about setting up your product list here.

Add a Beacon price list to get up to date material costs from your Beacon Pro+ account. Any item in your product list can be linked to an item in your Beacon price list. Before getting started, make sure that your Beacon Pro+ account is linked to SumoQuote.
