Available Order Attributes
An order's Fulfillment Type is determined by how you intend to get your product to your customer.
Orders created in the POS are In-Store orders, while orders created on the web can be Pickup or Delivery orders. Our current fulfillment types are:
Order Minimum is a dollar amount. If the cart’s subtotal is lower than the order minimum, the discount cannot be applied. A customer's cart is only eligible for the discount if the order’s subtotal is greater than the order minimum you define.
If you want to limit discount eligibility by the number of items in a customer's cart, Advanced Discounts may be what you're looking for.
You can select Order Origins if you'd like to create a discount based on where the order is coming from. This allows you to target orders created in Flourish directly vs. orders placed online. Our current order origins are:
- Flourish External API
You can specify certain dates and times that you'd like your discount to be applied.
The discount below is configured to be eligible only during the week of 04/18, only on Tuesday through Thursday, and only between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM.
You can select a start and end date for your discount. It will only be valid between the two dates.
Specific date and time range
- Click the (Show Start and End Times), to set the discount is active within a particular date and time range.
- You can further refine the attributes by setting Days of the Week or Daily Time Range using the other toggles.
In this example, the Discount is active:
- From 11/16/2021 at 6:00 PM to 11/23/2021 at 7:00 AM
- Only on Tuesday and Thursday within this date and time range.
- Only between 10:00 AM and 1:00 PM
Days of the Week
You can select which day(s) of the week you want your discount to be active. When this is toggled on, any day in green is a valid day for your discount. Days in white are not valid for your discount. If all days appear in white, the discount will be available every day of the week.
To refine things even further, you can set a window of time your discount will be available to use. The time range is in your facility's local time, so you'll never need to worry about timezone issues! Set a start and end time to limit when the discount can be applied.
If you set a time range, your discount will be available if the order is created during the specified time range.
Important to know
If you set the discount to a time frame, and your sales do not match this time frame, your discount will NOT be applied or available to apply automatically or manually.
How do we ensure your sale is within the time frame of the discount?
- For Pickups and Deliveries - we use the ‘Created’ time-stamp.
- In-Store - we use the Check-in Time stamp.
You set a discount between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm; In both cases below, the discount will not be available manually or automatically for this client:
- You check in a client to the store at 12:55 pm.
- You created a pickup order or a delivery order at 12:55 pm.
