Figure: Example Discounts Screen

 

Discount Type

The type of discount. This will control how the discount is used.

Item Discount

This type of discount is manually given by the user on one selected item.

Sale/Value Discount

This type of discount is manually given by the user to a group of items. Its usually used on the entire sale or a type of item, for example 15% off all beverages and 10% of all food. Value discounts ($) behave differently depending on the $ Discount behaviour setting in System Settings, if the reward value is greater than the qualification items value.

Sale/Value Discount Auto

This type of discount is automatically given by the POS to a group of items when the Pay button is pressed. Its usually used on the entire sale or a type of item, for example 15% off all beverages and 10% of all food.

Offer

This type of discount is automatically given by the POS to a group of items when the Pay button is pressed. Its similar to Sale/Value Discount Auto but is generally for group of items such as 'buy 3 get 1 free', 'buy any 5 and get another item free'.

Tender

This type of discount will be given when the sale is paid for with a specific tender. If you use this option, you should select the required tender code from the combobox.

Voucher

If you are setting up a discount for a tendered voucher, you would set up a tender discount, specify the tender code as the voucher tender code and then enter the code of the voucher here. This allows you to say 'the user has tendered voucher type 1234 and is entitled to a discount of a free cup of coffee'.

See Vouchers for more details on how to use vouchers.

Cloud only deal

Indicates the discount is a cloud-only promotion. Any discount returned from SUV voucher service must be a Tender discount.

Description

A description about the discount/qualify.

POS Description

A description about the discount/offer to appear on the receipt.

Priority

The priority of the discount/offer. The system uses this to determine the order to process discount/offers. If an item can participate in two different discounts, the system chooses the one with the lowest priority number. Priority 1 is the most important priority, with priority 2 being the next important and so on.

Comment

A general comment/description about the discount. It's not displayed to the user, its only for information only.

Ask Reason For Discount

If this option is checked on, POS will ask for a reason for the discount. The reasons are defined using the Reasons function. This is useful if you want to offer a 10% discount but don't want to set up a discount code for each specific reason. You set up the discount once and ask for the reason for the discount.

Export as Coupon for Navision

Specifies which discounts are to be treated as coupons when exporting the sales and invoice data to the Navision General Ledger system. If checked the discount is treated as a coupon.
