Planned Promotions

Promotional prices window allows you to easily set up structured promotions to accommodate scenarios such as “discounting all Plush items by 10% off Price-1.” However, there was no easy way to set up unstructured promotions to accommodate scenarios such as, “item A is $1.29, item B is $4.00, item C is 10% off Price-1, item D is 15% off Regular price, and Category 1 is 15% off but not these specific items in the category.”You can use Planned Promotions to quickly define prices that will be in effect for a specific period for any combination of unrelated items.
