Custom Discounts Within Your Point of Sale
Custom discounts are something that you would want to believe are in most point of sales, but I’m afraid to say that it’s just not true. We’ve had a countless amount of customers come to us asking us if we allowed them to add their own discounts to transactions. Not much gives me more satisfaction than to tell a customer we can definitely help them with that part of their business.
So what exactly can you do with Zing’s custom discounts? While this may be a bit obvious, you can create your own discount amounts (ex: $15 or 60% off). It’s great for those who don’t just do the generic 10% or $20 off. A cool thing about creating a discount is that you can track how many times it was applied to an order. If you run a special promotion and want to know how well it went (besides looking at your sales in the Reports section), take a look at how many times the discount was applied. It should give you a good idea on how successful it was.
As a former cashier, I’ve used a few point of sales that just couldn’t make the discounts easy to manage. With Zing, we made it so you can apply a quick code to the discount. When the cashier is ready to apply the discount to the order or item, all they need to do is type in the code and click apply. Simple as that. We also added buttons to the left of the discount windows so you can click those as well. But for some businesses that use a ton of discounts for different instances; the codes are invaluable.
We hope you are getting a lot of use out of the custom discounts. If you have any questions or suggestions for them, feel free to email email@example.com!
