Discounts are set up using Rules to create the various deals you may want to offer at your store. For example, if you would like to have a Happy Hour or a discount for Veterans, you can set up rules to manually or automatically apply discounts based on Customer Status. Before you can apply discounts to your Order, they will first need to be created.

2. Click on Discounts.

3. In the top right corner, click the Green + button to create a new discount.
