This article addresses how to handle items on a Return Repair (rework) ticket that you wish to waive the charge for (i.e. set the price to zero).
Performing a return repair with a deductible requires some additional setup to perform. Namely, you will need to add a new item to you catalog that represents the deductible charge.
1. Setup the catalog item
1a. OPTIONAL: You may choose to create a new Item Type to associate with the Catalog Item, if you don't already have an Item Type that would suit this purpose.
1b. Create the catalog item for the deductible. Set the price to the amount you wish to charge for the deductible
