Promotions in MarketTime display directly in Order Totals of an order, and may be auto-applied if desired, allowing your Salespeople and Retailers to take advantage of active promotions automatically.
What you'll learn
- How to manage Promotions within MarketTime
This feature is found on the Promotions screen in the Navigation Menu
Clicking the New button allows you to fill out the information related to the promotion you're adding.
Amount to Meet - The amount the Order Total must meet before the Promotion applies.
NOTE: While the Auto Apply feature allows the promotions to auto apply to orders that qualify, you must enable the Allow Promotion Auto Apply option on the Advanced tab of the Manage Company screen to enable the feature for all your applicable promotions.
Due to this new auto-apply feature, MarketTime recommends ensuring that each Promotion entered only reflects a single deal/discount.
Cases where there are multiple tiers to a single promotion (e.g., spend $500, get 5% off; spend $1,000, get 10% off) will likely result in a lack of understanding which tier applies to the order at hand since each promotion can only have one Amount to Meet for it to auto-apply.
NOTE: Only one promotion may be applied to an order at a time.
Auto-applied Promotions will apply to the Amount To Meet that is closest to the Order Total.
As an example, an order that is $550 that qualified for a promotion that has an Amount to Meet at $500 will see that Promotion auto-applied, while the promotion that has an Amount to Meet at $1000 will not auto-apply until the Order Total satisfies or surpasses that amount.
If your offer is currently active, it will be shown in the Active column as seen below:
You can Edit or Delete your existing Promotions using the Edit/Delete buttons to the right of that column.
Finally, you also have the ability to download your Promotions if needed, by clicking either the Export or Export All options.
This will generate a CSV file containing your Promotions.
