Period discount setup
Period discounts (otherwise known as campaign discounts) can be used when there are periods of time during which some items have different (lower) prices. Period discounts allow users to set up that period and prices which items will have for its duration. After the period expires, the item price reverts to its default state.
Bring it To You Retail Ltd has a campaign running throughout May, where they provide a 20% Discount to all Hilfiger Products. The Period Discount is the preferred setup for this scenario.
To set up period discounts, follow the provided steps:
Click the button, enter Period Discount, and chose the related link to open the Period Discount List.
To create a new period discount, choose New from the ribbon.
The Period Discount Card is opened.

|Description||The short description of a period discount.||Hilfiger 20% Campaign|
|Status||After all the necessary data for period discount is inserted, the status of the period discount needs to be changed to Active. If there’s a need to disable the period discount, the status must be changed to Closed.||Active (The discount applies from the starting date)|
|Block Custom Discount||If enabled, salespeople can’t apply manual discounts on discounted items.||Enabled|

|Customer Disc. Group Filter||If the period discount is active only for certain customers, you should select their customer discount group in this field.
