Example : 2 for 1 Hot Beverage

Minimum # Items and Maximum # Affected allows you to control how a discount is applied e.g. 2 for 1 Coffee would be setup as follows;

  • Name : 2 for 1 Coffee
  • Category Filter would be ticked*
  • Type would be % and the value would be 100
  • Minimum # Items would be 2
  • Maximum # Affected would be 1


When this discount was applied the CHEAPEST coffee would automatically be discounted by 100% and as you added or changed coffee selection the discount would update automatically to the cheapest. It would only apply once at least 2 items were sold and only apply to 1 item. So if 4 coffees were sold only 1 would be discounted.

Discounts created in LoyaltyMate cannot be edited or deleted in the POS.
