The discount master screen is used to define discounts and their parameters. A discount may be a transaction discount or a line discount and may be in the form of a percentage off or a dollar amount. A discount can be very flexible in that you can set start and stop dates, start and stop times and days of the week. You can also define more limits to include or exclude stores, customers and items.
The name of the discount.
There are two discount types to select from:
Transaction discounts are given for all qualifying items in the transaction. Items may be specifically included or excluded from transaction discounts.
Line discounts are used for individual lines in a transaction.

Enter the amount of the percent off discount or the dollar off discount. Note If left blank the Quasar Point-of-Sale will prompt the user to enter the amount of the discount.
Enter a ledger account only if the discount is to be expensed and will not affect the margin of the item. If no account is entered the discount will reduce the amount of the sale and will reduce the margin of the item.
Adding loyalty points limits this discount to be used only by customers who have accumulated enough loyalty points. Customers use their loyalty points to buy the discount at the point of sale. Enter the amount of loyalty points required to buy the discount.
