Hiding shipping in part price

Do you fix the price of the product to encompass all delivery locations and assume win some lose others, or do you price every order different. Just curious from a process and tracking standpoint how that plays out. We quote and add misc charges for every order it would certainly be easier for us and our customers to wrap it all into a delivered price.

What we've done is via customization / report modification. Have a "base" price for the part (that is the recognized profit for said part)

Then via Customization we replace the "Price" field with a custom field where you type in the "New Price of the Part which includes shipping"

For example in the If the actual Price if the Part is 5 dollars, the new Price of the Part would be 6.50
So via customization we type 6.50 as the price (or look it up in UD) and then via BPM we actually create a Shipment Misc Fee on the order for the difference between Base Price and "New Price"

So in the System is shows
Unit Price 5
Misc Charge: 1.50

 

Then we modify the Report OrderAck, Invoice to "merge in" those specific MiscCharges into the unit price at print time.
