How to Apply a "Buy X Get Y" Discount on the POS

Discounts are an effective way to immediately increase sales while also attracting new customers to your venue. However, the type of discount plays a vital role in the effectiveness of each promotion. Although traditional discounts can be effective, "Buy X Get Y" or BOGO discounts have been an extremely popular and effective method for promoting your products. Whether you are trying to get rid of a slow-moving product or looking for an increase in sales, "Buy X Get Y" discounts are an effective way to attract more customers. 


NOTE: If multiple products fit the criteria for the reward or "Y" product then the discount will be applied to the cheapest product that fills the get conditions
