How do I offer a quick, one-time discount to a generic walk-in customer?
Follow these steps
Price books are alternative prices for products that are attached to customer profiles, they're often used to offer employee discounts or specialty pricing to wholesale customers.
However, some stores choose to create a generic customer profile and attach a price book in order to offer quick discounting at the POS.
To use price books to offer a generic discount at the POS, follow these steps.
- Create a generic customer profile to use for the discount. We suggest using something simple like 10% Customer. See the article, How to create a customer profile.
