SalesPad POS allows you to apply discounts to a customer's order. Discounts are set up and managed in SalesPad Cloud. There are two basic types of discount targets: All, which is a discount for the entire sale, and One, which is a discount for a single item. If you create a discount with a One target, you can customize the percent or dollar value of the discount.
To get started, open the Discounts module in SalesPad Cloud.
To create a new discount, click the New Discount dropdown in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and select between an Item Discount and an Item Class Discount. An Item Discount will allow you to create a discount for an item; an Item Class Discount allows you to create a discount for an Item Class.
The Create Discount drawer will appear. Fill out the information fields in this drawer.
For a brief explanation of the different information fields in the Create Discount drawer, click here:

Discount Target - Designates between All, One, or Any; an All target applies the discount to the entire order, a One target applies it to a single item, and Any is still in development
