Creating a Discount Code

1         Add Code in Discount Codes

  • Percent – The percentage selected to take off the order.

  • Prompted Amount – This allows a prompt to come up to change the default amount created.

  • Amount – The amount selected to take off the order.

Depending on what you type you choose, you can then choose the percentage or amount you wish to take off. For this article, we will take off $20.

For apply to, choose to take the amount or percentage off the line item (the item itself) or the document (the whole order).
