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 for you to easily bill the applied discount back to your locations.
