Multi-buy Discounts - Example - Buy any Quantity from Item Set

This example describes using a Multi-buy Discount record to implement a "Buy any three Items for a fixed price" offer. Please refer here for full details about the fields in the Multi-Buy Discount record.

The "Buy any three Items for a fixed price" offer will be implemented by the Multi-buy Discount record illustrated below.

Points to note in this record are as follows:
  • The Type is "Buy any Quantity from Item Set".

  • The Disc. Type is "Cheapest". If a Customer purchases four of the selected Items, this means that the three cheapest Items will qualify for the offer and the most expensive Item will be charged at full price.

  • The offer is "Buy any three Items for a fixed price", so we have entered "3" in the Buy any Qty field.

  • The fixed price is 15.00, so we have entered "15.00" in the Fixed Price field.

  • We have listed the qualifying Items in the matrix. To qualify for the offer, a Customer needs to purchase any three of these Items. This can be in any combination: for example, three different Items each with a quantity of one or a single Item with a quantity of three will both qualify.
Follow the usual procedure when entering Invoices and POS Invoices. In the example Invoice illustrated below, we are about to enter a quantity for the third Item:

When we specify the quantity, a new row containing the Multi-buy Discount will be added to the Invoice automatically:

The Disc. Type is "Cheapest" so, if the Customer buys a fourth Item from the list, the most expensive Item will be charged at full price:
