Creating a Volume Discount Record

A volume discount record provides the top-level information about a volume discount, including its name, whether it is a simple or tiered volume discount, its start and end dates, and its currency.

CAUTION:  If you delete a volume discount record, all references to this discount become invalid. Any price list line items that used this discount will no longer have a volume discount.

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Pricing screen > Volume Discount view.
  2. Add a new record to the Volume Discounts list and complete the necessary fields. Some fields are described in the following table.
