  • Overview of the Pricing Engine The pricing engine, which consists of a search engine and a calculation engine, works through open APIs to provide the pricing results to the calling application. From the pricing request, the pricing engine evaluates the appropriate modifiers and price lists, resolves incompatibility issues, retrieves the list price, and calculates the unit selling price and adjustments. The search engine receives pricing information from entities like price lists, modifiers, qualifiers, formulas, products, and pricing attributes.
