How to configure discounts for products? - Operators Discount

In this article, you will learn what types of discounts can be applied to your products and also, how to configure a discount as an Operator.

As a part of pricing management, Marketcube offers a discount functionality to the operator. By using this functionality, operators can provide discounts to their end customers.


A Discount can be added to the products in two ways:

  1. Product-specific discount using the product form: Using this option, the operator can add a discount using the product form (details on how to access the form will be explained below). Once the form is completed the discounted price for the product will be reflected on the storefront: 
    Discount ss
    Capture-4
  2. Global discount - Which is a discount applied to all products. This discount can be set up in two ways:
    1. As a Standard Discount.
    2. As an Advanced Discount.




How to configure discounts for products?

  1. Click on the Settings tab >> Click Show for the Products panel >> Click Discount
    tempsnip-3

  2. There are two standard discount types Flat or Percentage, to change between flat and percentage discounts, click the arrows facing up or down which are located next to the word flat/percentage. The standard discount figure is a global function so will be set across all products.
    1. Flat Discount: 
    2. Percentage Discount:

  3. You also have the ability to apply Advance Discount in the following ways:
    1. Vendor basis,  you will have the same option to add in a flat rate or a percentage per vendor. A reminder to Set Rules to Vendor to make sure the advance discount is used.
    2. Product Type basis,  you will have the same option to add in a flat rate or a percentage per product category. A reminder to Set Rules to Product Type to make sure the advance discount is used.
Or you can have the option of applying a percentage or flat rate discount on a combination of both Vendor and Product types. There's no limit to how many combinations you can add.


4. Press Submit to save the settings.


     

    Food for thought:

    The operator is highly recommended to update discounts in the marketplace operator account instead of the Shopify storefront.
