Discounts: Types

Primary Discount Types

Percentage/ Dollar off Entire Order A percentage or dollar off discount that’s applied to all items in the order that match the basis of minimum items in the order or the minimum subtotal, constrained by the maximum items or order subtotal
Percentage/ Dollar off Line Item A percentage or dollar off discount that’s triggered by individual line items that match the basis of minimum items in line or minimum subtotal of line
Percentage/ Dollar off Qualifying Item A percentage or dollar off discount that’s triggered when basis is met and applied to specific items
Cumulative Discount Brackets A percentage or dollar off discount that’s triggered when basis is met and applied to line items when number of items in line or dollar amount in line is met 
Shipping The Shipping discount is Inclusive and will be applied to the entire order; please note, Shipping discounts cannot have Supplemental discounts attached to them, nor can a Shipping Discount be a Supplemental discount
Coupon codes: (also called redemption or promo codes) Used online only and are not valid in the POS.  In The discount Engine, if a coupon has a code added, this discount will be unavailable in the POS.  To run both in tandem, simply set up two discounts using the copy tool, so each will trigger correctly, depending on the origin of the order being created

Supplemental Discount Types

Supplemental Discounts are attached to a Primary Discount. They adhere to the criteria rules of the primary but can be made more restrictive. Likewise the Validity of the Supplemental Discount adheres to that of the primary but can be more restrictive (e.g. a supplemental 5% off discount that is only good for one weekend)
