Types of a single discount

The Type of a single discount displays how the discount would be applied. There are two Types of a single discount - fixed and percent.

TypeDefinition
Fixed- This type means that the discount will be applied by a fixed sum out of the total price.
Percent- This type means that the discount will be applied by a percentage of the total price.

Hooks of a single discount

The Hook of a single discount displays the trigger of the discount, meaning - the criteria that needs to be met in order for the system to know there is a discount in that situation. There are two types of Hooks - quantity and promo code.

HookDefinition
Quantity- This hook requires for the time period of the desired by the user product/service to be the same as the one set in the single discount, in order for it to be applied. Quantity-based single discounts are not personalized and would be available throughout the entire system to any customer purchasing a product/service with the specified properties.
Promo code- This hook is a coupon that is created and provided to a customer; when used the time period of the product/service isn't a factor. Promo codes are personalized discounts. Please see more information on Promo codes here.

Creating a single discount

Choosing a Hook

There may be some additional options involved when choosing the type of discount hook.

When a quantity-based hook is chosen there are no more actions to select from. It simply notifies that the period for which the user has selected the product/service has to be within the discount's time frame.

Choosing a promo code-based hook will require an additional setting of choosing the specific promo code. More than one promo code could be attached to one and the same single discount. The promo code needs to also be existing before hand, in order to be chosen. For more information on promo codes please click here.
