Creating the Customer Discount
To create your customer discount:
- In the Management Console ([yoursubdomain].revelup.com), navigate to the Product tab and then click Discounts from the left.
- In the Discounts page, click + Add Discount.
- First, enter the discount name. Choose the type of discount (Amount, Percent, Re-Price, or Alt-Price) from the Discount Type drop-down menu. Then, from the Function drop-down, choose Customer. For the Discount Type, enter the amount of the discount. Next, select if this is an Item or Order discount. Lastly, select any Qualifying Data.
- If you selected an Order discount, check Item level if you want the discount applied to each individual item, rather than the order as a whole. Check the Tax box if you want to tax the discount. If the discount is untaxed, leave the box unchecked:
- Once all your details have been entered, click Save.
Linking the Customer Discount to a Customer Group
After you create the customer discount, the next step is to link it to a customer group. To do this:
- Navigate to the CRM tab and click Customer Groups from the left.
- Click the details icon for the group you want to attach to the discount.
- In the details page, click the Discounts field and choose the correct customer discount.
- If you'd like the discount to apply automatically anytime a customer from the group is attached to an order on the POS, check the Auto Apply Discount box.
- Then, click Save:
Customer Discounts on the Point of Sale
After adding items to the order screen, attach a customer from the CRM group. Once the customer is attached to the order, the customer discount will automatically be applied if Auto-Apply Discounts is enabled. If not enabled, an option for manually adding the discount will be available on the POS.
