- Discount Code: The discount code can be any unique numeric code, in any organizational pattern that is preferred.
- Name: This is the name of the discount as it will appear in most reporting and on the sales and checkout screens.
- Description: More detailed description of the discount.
- Apply Discount to Sale Commission: This setting enables users to determine how this Discount will affect the commission paid on a product or service, after the discount has been attached.
Example: if an employee sells a $15.00 item with a $1.50 discount, they are paid commission on the $13.50 sale. In other words, 100% of the discount was removed from the commission.
If this is set to Yes, a lower percentage amount can be selected to affect the commission. This is useful when products and services are heavily discounted, and employees can still get a reasonable commission.
- Discount Valid From/Through: These two rows of text fields are where the dates for the discount’s term of availability are set. Discounts will appear as options in the checkout screen after the start date, and will disappear when the end date expires.
