To enter a Discount on a Sales Transaction:
- Navigate to the Sales Transaction Complete Sale screen.
- Enter the Discount as an amount or a percentage in the either the Discount Amount field or the Discount Percentage field.
Before Discounts can be entered, the Discount field must be configured for display and usage:
- The Discount Display Field Sales Transaction Type Complete Sale Parameter - enables the display of the Discount field.
- The Discount Entry Field Sales Transaction Type Complete Sale Parameter - prompts the Clerk to enter the Discount.
The Discount may be entered as either a dollar or a percentage amount and is applied to the Sales Transaction SubTotal after normal line item mark-downs have been taken and before Sales Tax and Shipping are calculated. Press [F9] to switch between dollar and percentage entry modes. To use the Discount to apply a surcharge (a service charge, for example), enter a negative Discount value. Sales Tax and Shipping are calculated as if the Discount was distributed proportionately across all line items.
If a Customer's database record includes a Discount (in the Discount % field) it is automatically applied to the Sales Transaction and may be manually adjusted by editing either the Discount Amount or Discount Percent.
