Understanding Discount Limit

To avoid giving customers too large of a discount, we built in a few safeguards. One of which is a preset discount limit that will block the purchase from going through if over a certain amount. This limit is set as a percentage of the purchase. For example, if I had the limit set to 40%, then discounts that are 41% and higher will be automatically blocked by the POSaBIT POS system.

Learn how to enable this feature below:

  1. Login to the POSaBIT web portal
  2. Select 'General Settings' under the settings drop-down located at the top of the screen
  3. Scroll down until you locate the section labeled, 'Pricing Options', here you will see a text box that allows you to input the rewards limit percentage.
  4. Input the highest percentage that you are willing to accept as a discount. For example, if you want anything greater than 40% you can enter '40'. Therefore, any discount that is 40% or less will be accepted, but, every discount that is 41% or higher will be blocked
  5. Once finished, press the blue Save button located at the bottom of the page.


Note: POSaBIT uses a combination of discounts to calculate if it will reach your preset limit or not. Therefore, if a 40% discount limit is set and you try to apply a 20% item discount and 25% order discount then the purchase will be blocked because the cumulative discount for that particular item would be over 40%. 

Below is a screenshot showing what will appear on the POS system when you try to apply a discount that is over your discount limit. Notice that the red bar tells you exactly what your preset limit is and the charge button is greyed out until the discount is adjusted.


There is also a new setting that will allow managers to override the sales discount limit. This can be turned on by going to the POS Portal --> Settings --> General POS Register Settings, then enable the Require Manager PIN to Override Sales Restrictions. Then the manager will need to tap the (tap to override) option on the right side of the discount error message.
