Selecting eligible modifiers for required items

For a menu item that has modifiers, you can specify which modifiers qualify as required items or are included in the discount price.

  • You can specify that a discount price includes, but does not require, one or more modifiers for a menu item. For example, a discount price might include a cheese pizza with up to two modifiers from a pizza toppings menu group.

  • You can specify that a menu item must have a specific number of modifiers or specific modifiers to qualify for a discount. For example, a discount might apply to a cheese pizza with a jalapeno topping, but not to a cheese pizza with no toppings or to a cheese pizza with toppings other than jalapenos.

Combo discounts that include modifier options apply to the least expensive modifiers for an item. For more information, see Configuring a combo discount.
