General sales line discounts
To set up a new line discount, search for Discount in Business Central. Press the related Line Discounts link to access the existing list of discounts and to set up new ones.
Whether you have an existing list of discounts or not, you can create a new line discount by pressing the New button. In the bottom of the list you must enter the Sales type, type, code, and of course the Discount percentage.
In this case, we will create a general item discount. The items integrated to the Dynamicweb ecommerce shop in this guide are all stored as ‘Resale’ discount types in Business Central – you must select the appropriate type for your specific Business Central setup. Here, Item discount group is chosen to apply to all customers as we want to apply a discount to a specific group of items to all logged in customers. Set a minimum quantity of 0 for the discount to apply at all times.
As soon as you have applied the appropriate information for your discount and set a line discount percentage, the information is transferred to Dynamicweb.
