Discounts > Add a Standard Discount

A standard discount is used for a continual discount that has a single start date and time along with a single end date and time. 

Byte University Tip: Locations such as offices and apartment buildings like to offer a benefit to their employees or residents by subsidizing discounts for certain purchases. Easy transaction reporting allows you to easily bill the applied discount back to your locations.  


Set Up a Standard Discount

Navigate to the Discounts tab

Select + Add in the top right-hand corner

Select Discount


Complete each section accordingly:
