The "No Price" attribute, when added to a SKU, will tell the system that the SKU has no price associated with it, and will allow you to add the item to a transaction without a prompt asking you to type in a price.
1. Create a new SKU attribute (see: Adding New Attributes) with the name "NO PRICE" (in all capitals), and the "CheckBox" format.
Close up of attribute setup window
2. Now if you create a new SKU (see: Adding a New SKU) you can check the "NO PRICE" box under the SKU's attributes section. Now you can add this SKU to a transaction without a window asking you to set a price.
Step 1: Select the SKU that you wish to apply the No Price attribute to.
Step 2: Select to check off and enable the QOH=0 field.
Step 3: Select to check off and enable the NO PRICE attribute.
Step 4: Select Save to finalize the changes.
3. One interesting use of the NO PRICE attribute is to create a SKU without a price set and the NO PRICE option checked, then add a discount rule (see: Adding a Special Price to a SKU) which applies every time the blank item is added to a sale.
In the above example, when SKU 1058 (which is set to NO PRICE) is scanned into a transaction (off a printed coupon or flyer), all items from the Electronics department will be discounted by 15%.
