Coupons Guide

Overview

Coupons in Revel are static discounts added onto the order. While similar to the discount function, it’s a little different, because they are rung up like products. Since coupons are treated as products, they can be also scanned via a barcode scanner. Coupons are reported just like discounts and appear as a separate row in the Sales Summary.

Note:

The coupon functionality is by default, disabled. Please create a ticket with Revel Support to enable this feature, as it is a Staff Online setting.

 

How to Create a Coupon

Once the feature is enabled, a new Category, Sub-Category, Product, and Product Class are automatically created for the establishment.

  1. From the Products home page, you will see a list of your products:

    • In the Price field, enter the coupon value as a negative number. For example, if the coupon is for $5 off, enter -5 as the price:

  8. Once you've entered the class and price, click Save.

Now, when this coupon is rung up onto the order, it will subtract $5 from the total. Note, coupons do not remove tax.

How to Use Coupon

Coupons are rung up as products on the iPad. If there is a bar code associated with the coupon, select “Enter Barcode”. If you do not use barcodes, find the coupon under the corresponding category and subcategory.
