See Dexter for full details on Trek's Summer Sale.

System setup

  • Keep Ascend on the latest version.
  • Keep Trek vendor products up-to-date.
  • Ensure all products in stock are properly categorized.
    Sherpa Tip: Categorize products at the time they are received - check Options > Ordering > Check for missing product attributes.
  • Place your orders as normal through Ascend. Promotional costs are automatically applied.
  • Register all bikes sold with Trek.
  • Promotional Trek Card financing rates are automatically available in the Plan Option drop-down menu for Trek Card payments.
  • Download the customer sale pricing: From the Ascend Desktop, select the Integration menu > Trek > Sale Wizard. Summer Sale pricing is available in the Trek Sale Wizard approximately one week prior to the sale start.
    Sherpa Tip: If you're a multi-store retailer, sale pricing automatically shares between all locations, so you only need to download each sale at one location.

  • If you wish to extend Trek's rebate pricing to your customers, create an On Sale promotion for all Trek bikes.
    Sherpa Tip: If you're a multi-store retailer, sale pricing automatically shares between all locations, so you only need to create the sale at one location.

    ii. From the Category drop-down, select Bikes and click Include Child Categories.
    iii. From the Vendor drop-down, select Trek Bicycle Corporation.
    iv. From the MSRP drop-down, select the appropriate criteria (Between, >, or <) and enter the corresponding price value(s).

FAQs & troubleshooting

Promotional Sale Pricing

Q: How do I keep sale prices from showing on SmartEtailing early?
A: Sale pricing will only display early if you use the Supplier Sync service. If you do not wish to display sale pricing early, disable the sale price
feed on SmartEtailing (contact SmartEtailing support for assistance).

End-of-Sale Reporting

Q: Why isn't a bike sold showing on the report?
A: This is generally due to one or more of the following reasons:
  • The product is not categorized under a "Bikes" category (i.e. your parent category name must be "Bikes").
  • The product was added to the transaction on a date outside of the range entered.
  • The product does not have "Trek Bicycle Corporation" as a vendor.
  • The product does not have "Trek" in the Brand field.
