Discount Pricing is used when you have a day and range of time during which you will offer special pricing on one or more items. For pricing that happens every Tuesday, use the Discount Pricing Tab as opposed to manually changing the pricing for each item in the Menu Items tab to create your alternative pricing.
Date Price Setup
In this tab, the user will set up a date range with a name that can be accessed in the menu items set up. In the example, you will notice that all of the combo items have been selected for special pricing on Thanksgiving. This may be a promotion or marketing strategy to increase business over the holidays. You do set prices or drag items in this section. Simply add a campaign name and select the items that you want to make available to the campaign.
How It Works
- Check the Item Categories that contain the items that will be included in the discounts.
- Click the >> button to create a list of all items within the selected categories.
- Check the items that will be included as part of the discount.
- Check the days during which the discounts will be available to the customer.
- Select a Start Time to begin the discount period.
- Select an End Time to end the discount period. NOTE: The End Time must be after the Start Time. The system assumes that the 24-hour clock begins at the Start Time, so if you start your discount at 4:00 a.m. and end it at 4:00 a.m., the discount will not calculate. You must end the discount no later than 3:59 a.m. Also, your start and end times must be within the same business day. If your business day starts at 4:00 a.m., you cannot start the discount prior to 4:00 a.m.
- Select the applicable percentage discount or cash discount from the dropdowns.
- Select Time Slot Only (the discounts will only be available between the scheduled time slots) or Select Time Slots and Default (discounts will be available for all selected items for the day selected).
- Check your work/settings.
- Click the Create Discount Pricing button to save your discount pricing.
- Activate and Sync all changes.
