  1. Go to the discount rules page (accessible via Marketing > Discount rules in the left menu).

  2. Click the title of the discount rule you want to edit. This page displays the discount rule settings.

  3. Under DISCOUNT RULE, set the following:

    • Title – here you can optionally change the name of the discount rule. This is the name you entered when creating the discount rule.

    • Discount type – the discount type you selected when creating the discount rule. The type CANNOT be changed. If you want to change this, you need to create a new discount rule

    • Enable discount rule – with this you enable the relevant discount rule and it will immediately apply in your webshop.

    • Stop after discount rule (enabled by default) – this setting determines what Lightspeed eCom does when rules overlap. For more information, see Explanation of the Stop after discount rule setting.

    • Apply discount before tax settlement (enabled by default) – This setting is only available when prices are displayed exclusive of tax (B2B or in US/Canada). Specifies whether the discount amount or percentage will be applied to the original sales price (excluding VAT), or after taxes have been applied. By default, the discount is applied before the VAT is applied.

  4. Under CONFIGURATION, set the following:

    • Apply this discount to each product of the selected categories – enter here the discount amount or percentage that applies to all products from the selected categories. The default value is a percentage.

    • Minimum amount a customer must spend (optional) – If you wish, you can set a minimum amount that customers must spend in the selected category(ies) to qualify for a discount.

    • Minimum number of products that a customer must purchase (optional) – if you wish, you can specify a minimum number of products that customers from selected category(ies) must order in order to qualify for a discount.
      Note: The Minimum Amount and Minimum Number of Products rules are cumulative, they are AND conditions, not OR conditions. For example, if you set a minimum spend of €20 and customers must purchase at least two products from the selected category(ies), a discount will only be given if customer orders meet both criteria.

  1. Under CATEGORIES, select at least one category to which the discount rule applies. If you don't select a category, the discount rule will never be activated.

  2. As an option, you can select (a) specific customer group(s) at EXTRA FILTERS that qualify for a discount. If you don't select a group, the applicable discount rule applies to all customers.

  3. Under USE and DATA, configure the following general settings:

    • Usage limit – indicate here how often the discount rule can be applied.

    • Number of times used - the "times used" counter keeps track of how often (to date) the code has been used. You can reset it by clicking on Reset.

    • Select a period – set here a period with start and end dates in which the discount rule applies. The time period expires on the selected date at 11:59PM (23:59). Click herefor more information on how to sync discount expirations.

  4. Click Save when you have finished configuring your discount rule.
