I am wondering if in HQ it's possible to set a maximum discount on certain items and not for others while discounting an entire transaction? Here is a use case example to help explain:
We operate a few donation based thrift stores that previously would run store wide sales at a blanket 25% off once every few weeks. We discovered this was eating into our margins on the new supplementary merchandise we actually purchase. We plan to change to a sales model of 25% off "Donated Goods" and 10% off "First Quality Goods" aka, "the new brand new stuff". At POS we used to discount the full transaction 25%. With this new system the only way we know is to go through at POS and discount every item, line by line, for every transaction. Very time consuming an inefficient.
What I'd like is for our "First Quality Goods" to never go more than 10% off at POS regardless of what discount is applied to the full transaction. Then we could apply a 25% discount to the transaction BUT a $10 first quality good would still only be reduced to $9.
I'm aware there is a "Set Item Sale Prices" worksheet but our donated goods are "non-inventory" items and use the "must enter price at the POS" option. In my experience this removes any automatic sale pricing schemes applied from HQ.
Any help would be much appreciated!
Hi! I haven't tested this but have you checked to see if a mix and match % discount scheme could be used with non-inventory items? You may also want to see if this plug in from RITE works with HQ and non-inventory items: rite.us/.../OpenDiscount.aspx.
Thank you for the answer. I will try playing around with the Mix and Match Discount scheme. It's not immediately obvious how that works even using the help file but I can do some local testing to see if it works. I will also e-mail the developer of that plus in to see if that functionality is supported.
