Description of Issue

Brands often want to mark up pricing on a marketplace and ingest that markup into the POS system. Olo has a Rails Markup tool to allow Brands to add a percentage upcharge to items that are flagged for Rails. Silver Pro has three methods of sending Rails Pricing to the POS. First, Olo can send the base price for the items and ignore the inflation amounts being sent to POS. The second option is Olo can send the inflated price and Silver Pro will accept this pricing for the item. The third option is Olo can send the base price of the items, and the inflation amounts to an open dollar item in POS so reporting can be done on the inflation amounts. 

 

Solution

Option 1: Olo sends base price for items and ignores inflation amounts being sent to POS.

  • This option is configured by Olo internally. Please advise your POS Technical Specialist if this is the option you would like configured for your brand. 

Option 2: Olo sends inflated prices for all items to POS

  • This option is also configured by Olo internally. Please advise your POS Technical Specialist if this is the option you would like configured for your brand.

Option 3: Olo sends base prices to POS, and inflated amounts to an open dollar item.

  • SILVER PRO: Create an open dollar item in Back Officemceclip0.pngmceclip1.png
