Tip #056 – Permanent Discounts


Tip #056
Permanent Discounts

Well, since nobody attempted to answer Quiz #002, I guess no one knows how to give a customer a permanent discount so…

Here is how:

Bring the customer’s profile record up on the screen and then press the percent sign (%)

flowerSoft will immediately display the following screen

At this point, you should enter the discount percent you want to give this customer on local orders.

Once you enter the discount %, flowerSoft will ask you for confirmation.

And then inform you that the customer will start receiving a 20% discount on all local orders.

I’m sure you are already getting some ideas as to how you can put this feature to good use.

When you next enter an order from this customer, flowerSoft will display the following screen once you get near the end of the order-taking process:

So flowerSoft still gives you a chance to skip the discount on each order if you choose to.
But if you do go ahead with the discount…

flowerSoft will apply the discount to the product amount only.

So, if you want to start using this feature to take and give orders from other florists you deal with on a constant basis, just open a “house” account for them and send them a bill at the end of each month.

The one thing you’ll have to work out is the sales tax.  If you are not going to collect sales tax on the order, you must make the account tax exempt because the order is a local order and flowerSoft will charge sales tax on those.

So consult your accountant before you make a decision one way or the other.

So there you have it, the answer to Quiz #002.
