Discount Item

Discount items represent a sales price discount.  You could specify a percentage discount, such as 10%, on a whole order, or an absolute cash discount.

How to create a new Discount Item

To create a new Service Item either use the Items Shortcut, or from the Explorer click Products/ServicesItems and click ‘Create New‘ from the Item List.

Select ‘Discount‘ to display a new Discount Item Document.

Discount Item Key Facts

  • The Item Code (sometimes called the Product Code) is a mandatory field; a Description can be added to further identify the Item if desired. These will appear on Transactional Documents (e.g. a Sales Invoice/Timesheet) when the associated Line Item is selected.
  • The Item Code has to be unique. You will get an error on saving the Item if it is not.
  • You can choose if you want the discount to be as a percentage (e.g. 10%) or an absolute value by using the ‘Discount as a percentage’ field. You enter the default Discount amount in the Discount section.
  • The Discount will automatically appear on Sales/Purchase Documents respectively when the associated Line Item is added. See Entering Line Items.
  • You can specify cross/up-sell information in the ‘Cross/Up-sell Information’ tab. If you enter information here corresponding Line Items will display a info icon indicating there is information associated with the Line Item. Clicking on the icon will show the Item information in a popup window.
  • Use the Classification tab to specify the Item’s associated Categories and Attributes, if any.
  • The Accounting tab defines how the Item is mapped to the Chart of Accounts. The default account mappings are set in the Accounts configuration page.
