How do I create a new Discount?

This article will show you how to set up a new Discount, and how to set which staff members can use that Discount during checkout.

Note: Custom discounts are not available in Phorest Go. In Phorest Go, you can manually type in either a monetary or percentage amount discount.

Creating a new Discount

Go to Manager > Settings > Financials > Discounts


Click the Add button to begin creating a new Discount.


When prompted, type your new discount name into the Name field, then click the Calculator button to set the discount amount. You can choose whether this will be a Percentage amount or a set value Amount.

After you enter the discount amount, click OK, then click Save to finish creating your new Discount.


Staff Access to Discount

After you create a new Discount you will need to set which staff members can apply this discount. This is determined by Access settings.

Go to Manager > Access & License Keys and use the Access Level dropdown menu to select which profile you would like to have access to your new discount.


 Useful Tip!

If you're not sure what Access Level is assigned to a particular staff member, go to Manager > Staff Members, and Single-click on the staff member's name. Their Access Level will be displayed on their main profile page.


Type the Name of your new discount into the Search field, then check the box for your new discount and then click Save.


You can also navigate to your new Discount by clicking the > arrow to expand on the Purchase section, then expand again on the Discounts section to see all of your discount types.
