Configuring a bulk discount

On the discount configuration page, under Advanced Settings , the Bulk Discount option determines whether a discount can apply in bulk to the number of eligible items that you configure.

Note

The Bulk Discount option displays for all fixed amount and fixed percent check-level discounts, and for combo discounts.

The option displays even when a discount has multiple required items, which makes it ineligible to be a bulk discount.

Make sure that you do not configure an ineligible discount to be a bulk discount.

Bulk Discount option in the Advanced Settings section of the discount configuration page

If you check the Bulk Discount option, you must also configure the Min Quantity and Max Quantity fields. These fields specify the number of eligible items to which the discount can be applied in bulk during a single application of the discount:

  • Min Quantity specifies the minimum number of eligible (required) items that the check must have before the bulk discount can apply. The value must be a positive integer.

  • Max Quantity specifies the maximum number of eligible items to which the bulk discount can apply at one time. The value must be a positive integer and must be equal to or greater than the Min Quantity value.

If you check the Bulk Discount option but leave the Quantity fields blank, the system sets them to 1 when you save the configuration.

Note

You use the Min Quantity and Max Quantity fields to control the application of the bulk discount based on the number of eligible items on the check. You can also use the Min/Max configuration option to control the application of the bulk discount based on the monetary total of the check. For details on the Min/Max option, see Configuring required minimum and maximum check totals.
