Discounts > Add a Happy Hour Discount

A Happy Hour discount has a set date and time range that automatically toggles on and off to apply to transactions. Think how Happy Hour at your favorite restaurant is only M-Thurs 3-5 PM, this can now be applied to your Byte stores. 

Byte University Tip: For locations that are closed over the weekend this discount can help you reduce spoilage by the store automatically applying a discount on your fresh products on Friday at 2 PM, that otherwise will expire over the weekend, then automatically turn off the discount on Sunday night when you plan on restocking the Byte store with new fresh products.

 When a Happy Hour is active for a percentage (%) discount on all products in the Byte store the tablet menu screen will show this Happy Hour banner: 


If the Happy Hour discount is a dollar($) off and/or only applies to certain products and not the entire store, you will not see this banner on the tablet screen and instead will only see the discount red line and price on that discounted product.
