Third-party pricing in Xactimate desktop

Updated by Heather Jones

Third-party pricing applies specific pricing from other companies to certain line-item components.  

Third-party pricing must be enabled in Xactimate Admin before it is available in Xactimate. Review this article to learn how to enable third-party pricing in Admin. 

Request third-party pricing 

You can apply third-party pricing for items through the Quick Entry pane, the Item spreadsheet, and the Component list. 

  1. In an open estimate, navigate to Estimate Items
  2. Open the Request third-party pricing window through one of the following options. 

Quick Entry 

In the Quick Entry pane, select Component pricing is required from ITEL Asphalt Shingle Pricing (ASP).

Item spreadsheet 

In the Item spreadsheet, select Request

Note: If the Request third-party pricing column is not visible, add it by right-clicking one of the visible column headings and then selecting Show "Request third-party pricing" Column from the drop-down menu. 

Component list 

In the Component list, select Request

 In the window that opens, select the checkboxes of the items for which you need to request pricing. 

  1. Select Request

If the request fails, you may be asked to try again.  

If the request is sent successfully, a window appears confirming receipt of the request. In the item spreadsheet, the Request link changes to Received

After the third party finishes the request, the new pricing will automatically load into Xactimate.

Note: You can customize automated notes for third-party pricing line items through Xactimate Admin
