Keystroke Point of Sale Help


Sales Manager - Coupons - Creating the Special Coupon Item

To use UPC bar-coded coupons with Keystroke, a special Coupon Item must be created in the Inventory database. The Coupon Item is not the item for which the coupon provides a discount and is not a physical item in the store inventory. It represents the coupon itself.

When scanned, Keystroke places it on the transaction and populates its price with the coupon's value.

Only one Coupon Item is needed.

Each time a coupon is entered, it is automatically given that coupon's value.

To create the Coupon Item:

- Add a new item to the Inventory database.
- Set all of the Price and Cost fields to $0.00 (Keystroke automatically sets the Price to the coupon value).
- Enable the Service parameter on the Inventory Main Screen.
- Set the Sale Qty on the Inventory Main Screen to -1.
- The Tax, Price, Pay, and Commission Codes on the Inventory Main Screen should all be blank.
- Keystroke uses the physical item's Code fields, or the Default Tax Code if the coupon is not for a specific item.

Note: Keystroke stores the coupon code (a UPC code that starts with the #5) in the Product Code field of the coupon's Line Item.
