Configuring discount consolidation for consolidated items

If you use consolidated menu items, you can use the Consolidate Discounts option to set how to apply an item-level fixed currency discount to a consolidated item.

The Consolidate Discounts option is available in the Front of house > Order screen setup > UI options page.

The available values are:

  • Yes - Indicates to apply item-level fixed currency discounts to each item.

    For example, a consolidated item has a quantity of three items. A $1 item-level fixed currency discount is applied to each item. $3 is discounted from the check.

  • No (the default) - Item-level fixed currency discounts are applied to the total of all the items.

    For example, a consolidated item has a quantity of three items. A $1 item-level fixed currency discount is applied to the quantity total. $1 is discounted from the check.

The Consolidate Discounts option has no effect on discounts other than item-level fixed currency discounts.

The following example shows how a discount would behave with each Consolidate Discounts setting (Yes or No).

For the following discount and check:

$2 fixed currency discount
2 Sodas, $5 each
Pre-discount check total = $10

The discount is applied as follows, depending on the configuration setting:

Consolidate Discounts = No
    The fixed currency discount is applied to 
    the total of all items:

    2 Sodas, $10 - $2 Discount = $8


Consolidate Discounts = Yes
    The fixed currency discount is applied to 
    each quantity of 1 item:

    2 Sodas, $10 - $2 discount (x quantity of 2 items) = $6
