Item Level Discount Promotions

We now offer tools for partners to run their own promotions via the Merchant App. Partners can take advantage of these self-serve promotions to control the deals that they want to offer in order to attract new customers and/or boost revenue. Merchants can now create limited time offers for item level discounts for any menu item. Create a promotion in seconds simply by navigating to the “Promotions” section in the app.

Creating a Promotion

To create and view promotions, tap the “Promotions” menu item in the navigation.

  • New Price means that each item(s) will be set at a flat price
  • Discount by Amount means that each item(s) will be discounted by a set dollar amount
  • Discount by Percent means that each item(s) will be discounted by a set percentage
