Promotions - Rolling

A Rolling Promotion discounts items when purchased at specific quantities. This type of promotion requires you to define a discount for each desired quantity level. When each defined quantity is reached, items are discounted for the specific level. Rolling promotions enable you to apply a different discount percentage to each quantity level. Consider the following quantity levels and discount percentages:

Qty Discount Percentage Notes
1 5 Qty 1, 2 get 5% discount
3 10 Qty 3, 4 get 10% discount
5 15 Qty 5 and above get 15% discount

Validation Rules
When creating a Rolling Promotion, on the Validation Rules screen, create an Item Filter and select the items that will be discounted. You can optionally enter the Item Subtotal that must be met. The Sale Items checkbox is selected and cannot be cleared. The Quantity is set to 0 and cannot be changed.

When setting up a Rolling promotion, these validation options are also available.

  • Click the Coupon checkbox to define a list of coupon codes. If a customer presents one of the coupon codes at POS, the rule is validated.
  • Click the Customer checkbox to define a customer filter. If a Bill To customer that matches the entered criteria is entered on the transaction, the rule is validated.
