NEW PRICE POSTING SYSTEM - UPDATED: January 30, 2014
The Authority is pleased to announce that the much anticipated online price posting upgrades are now available for use by you and your staff to review and work on completing in the new format. Please find links to the instructional tutorials below.
On January 28, 2014 the Authority sent a letter of notification to all licensed wholesalers and manufacturers which contains valuable information including a unique PIN number to enable initial access to the new price posting system by licensees. If you have not received your mailing within a reasonable time or if you are a new licensee, please contact the Wholesale Bureau to obtain your PIN number.
For the convenience of current price posters, the new system has been pre-populated with your February 2014 schedule information. Due to some formatting changes, reviewing and updating the pre-populated information will be necessary. Please find a tutorial below to assist you with the conversion from the old format.
