As an optional part of the process of creating and maintaining a commerce-based Web site, you can set up promotions that you use periodically to offer discounts on specific products or groups of products. For example, you might decide to promote a range of products for Mother’s Day by highlighting them with an image on your site’s “Welcome!” page and offering a 10 percent discount if customers order them by a specific date. Alternatively, you might want to offer a discount to encourage visitors to register at your site – perhaps you offer two products for the price of one to anyone who registers today.

The following are some examples of the types of discounts you can set up through promotions in ATG Commerce:

Note that the system also treats coupons as a type of promotion. For more information, see Setting Up a Coupon Promotion.
