Required item behavior for combo discounts

When working with combo discounts, keep in mind the following discount behavior:

  • Combo discounts that include modifier options apply to the least expensive modifiers for an item.

    For example, a combo discount is configured to apply to a pizza with up to three toppings. An order includes a pizza with five toppings.

    In this case, the system applies the combo discount to the least expensive three toppings. The remaining toppings are full price.

  • Combo discounts can apply multiple times to modifier options.

    For example, a combo discount applies to a pizza with up to three toppings. An order includes two pizzas with three toppings each.

    In this case, you can apply the combo discount to the check twice. The combo discount price is applied to each pizza, including the three modifiers for each item, for a total of six discounted modifier options.

  • If you apply a combo discount to a check that includes more than one of the same menu item and that menu item is eligible for a combo discount, the discount applies to only one of the items.

    For example, a combo discount offers a cup of coffee and a bagel for $3.00. You apply the discount to a check that includes two cups of coffee and a bagel. In this case, the discount includes one cup of coffee and a bagel.
