How to Setup Discounts
Discounts are a monetary amount subtracted from the regular wash price. Discounts can be configured so the value varies by wash package. The methods for redeeming a discount include code entry, coupon (inserted at the Bill Acceptor) or token. You may also limit the use of the discount via scheduling or limiting the uses per visit/day, etc.
