Create a sales promotion to set the pricing of one or more items for a specific period of time. The discount will automatically be taken off the order during the promotion time frame.  The promotion selling price will automatically be used unless the item is in a kit (the kit pricing overrides an individual item discount price) or if the customer has a Customer Specific Price (if a sales promotion and customer specific pricing is available, the lowest price will be used).  Sales promotions can also be defined for one or more stores.


  1. Open the Sales Promotion screen (Administration > Sales > Sales Promotions > Add Sales Promotion).
  2. Input the Name of the sales promotion, for example, Spring Sale 2017.
  3. Input the Description of the sales promotion.
  4. Select the Effective Date from the calendar or type in a date.  This is the date the promotion will actually begin.  On this date, Evosus® will automatically discount items included in the Sales Promotion.
  5. Select the Effective Time.  This is the time of day the promotion will actually begin. The discount will not be taken by Evosus® until the exact time specified.
  6. Select the Expiration Date from the calendar or type in a date.  This is the date the promotion will end.  On this date, Evosus® will automatically stop discounting items included in the Sales Promotion.
  7. Select the Expiration Time.  This is the time of day the promotion will actually end. The discount will discontinue at the time specified.
  8. Check off the store(s) the Sales Promotion applies too.  If a store is not selected, the discount will not be seen when logged into that store and discounts will not be taken off orders.
  9. Enter any notes specific to the Sales Promotion.  These notes will not be viewable from anywhere but the Sales Promotion screen.
  10. Click [Save and Add Pricing].

  12. Select a Pricing Method to create the discount for the above selected items:
