Different Discount Types

Percent or $ Amount - Select how you want the discount to apply to the sale ($ Amount discount only applies to WinPOS at a transaction level)

Multiple item discount - Multi item discounts are essentially pricing on bundles (or packages) and so their pricing should be treated as an individual promotional unit price. That is to say if there is a price of $10 for 3 items and each items is $4, the 3 for $10 superseded the $12 price. Then if a transaction level discount of 20% is applied, the price should be reduced to $8.This is the only instance when a transaction level discount will be applied on a previously discounted item, as multi item discounts are really packages.

Variable discounts can also be set up so the cashier is prompted for the discount percent at the sales screen.
Example of Multi Item Discount:

Applying a Discount on the POS - to a sales transaction

Discounts can be applied at the POS in one of two ways, at a transaction level where the discount is applied across all items in the transaction, or at an item level, where it is applied on a single item. In addition items can be modified to always ring up at a discount by applying a discount code at the master item level or at a price list level.
