The discounts are provided using a coupon system. Each enterprise user can have an unlimited number of various coupons in the "My Coupons" section which can be accessed by selecting the like labelled menu entry from the "My Stuff" menu. Only one coupon can be applied per order : although your customers may have several coupons, they will be only able to use one per each order.
The coupons can provide either a percentual or a fixed discount and each coupon has an expiration date. Each coupon can have a minimum order price assigned. A coupon is applicable as long as the following conditions are met :
- the minimum order price is lower than the total price of the order
- the coupon is not expired
- the net profit of the enterprise user is greater than the calculated discount on the whole order
You can create a 15% discount coupon with the expiration date set at 1/1/2011.
You can create a $5 discount coupon on all orders above $30 with the expiration date set at 1/1/2012.
