You may have coupons that your clients use for purchasing products or for discounts on services or retail. It would be best to add these coupons to the Coupon List so that you may track coupon usage. Coupons may be applied to an entire ticket, or to a single item on a ticket.

Click the "Add a New Coupon" button in the side bar and the following screen will appear:

Enter a default discount amount for the coupon. The way the amount is applied is determined by the coupon type selection.
Start Date / Expire Date
You may enter a start and expiration date if you choose. You will not be able to select the coupon when discounting an item in the Point of Sale if the expiration date has passed.
Select the single inventory department you wish this coupon to apply. If you want the coupon to apply for items in all inventory departments, leave blank.
Using the number entered in the "amount field", the discount will be applied according to the type that is selected.
