At the bottom of the Bookings List Subtab, Tourwriter will total the cost of all Bookings, and allow for adjustments to the Final Sell Price.

Selling at the Gross(final) Total – default pricing

The price of each booking item in the Bookings List Subtab is based on either the unit price loaded at Supplier level, or an edited price at the Booking level.

Grand Summaries

The Net(final) and Gross(final) prices shown above are your Grand Summaries figures. These are your default totals that can then be changed by either adjusting the Markup percentage or the Commission percentage in the fields below in order to get your Final Sell Price. If you do not wish to make any Markup of Commission adjustments the totals shown in the Grand Summaries field will be your Final Sell Price.
