Setting limits on discount
Discounts can be limited by a percentage of the total invoice amount. Additionally, an absolute value limiter can be added. To set the maximum discount:
- Click on Setup in the left main menu.
- Click on the Discounts tile under Invoicing
Mike runs Law School Admission Test (LSAT) classes. He wishes to restrict the maximum discount to 20% of the total invoice amount, for any student. Further, he wants to ensure that the discount value does not exceed AED 399 (as shown below).
Samantha, is interested in enrolling for Mike's LSAT classes and her total invoice amount is AED 4,000. Mike, in a hurry, applies a 20% discount amounting to AED 800. Reportcard alerts him, saying that the discount is not permissible as it exceeds AED 399.
However, if Samantha's total bill was AED 1,000 and Mike applied a 20% discount amounting to AED 200. Reportcard would not alert him, as the discount is within both permissible limits:
- Percentage; 20%
- Absolute value; AED 200 which is less than AED 399
