Hi. How can we help?

Adding discounts

You can add discounts from the Back Office that are applicable to customers or employees on the POS. These discounts become visible and usable on the POS by adding a discount button to your menu.

Another option is adding discounts by generating QR codes. These codes allow users to receive a discount by just scanning this code. A scanner is a prerequisite for this method.

A discount can be given as a percentage or as a currency unit and applied to the entire order or individual items in the order.

 

Add a discount

Add all discounts to your Back Office that you would like to provide to your customers or employees on the POS. Add a discount button afterwards to use the created discounts on your POS.

  1. Log in to the Back Office with your account credentials.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Configuration > Settings > Discounts.
  3. Select Add a discount.
  4. Apply the required information for the discount:
    • Code: Enter the discount code
    • Type: Select the discount type.
    • Rate: Enter the discount rate.
    • Description: Enter a significant description
    • This discount denotes wastage: Activate, if required.
    • Group: Add a new discount group or select an existing group from the drop-down menu.
  5. When you are done, select Save.
