Create a Discount List
For a new list you will need to set the following fields.
Name -- Name for the discount list.
Type -- Select the type of discount.
- Percentage: The discount given will be a percentage of the total products related to this price list item that are ordered.
- Amount: The discount given will be a flat dollar amount of the total products related to this price list item that are ordered. If you select amount you will also select currency type. This should default to your default currency.
For New or Existing lists you will be able to edit the Name an Description here and link to other information. To change the type create a new list.
The currency field is blank because this is a percentage discount type. An amount discount type will display the currency selected in the Discount List set up in the previous step.

When a discount is applied
Discounts will be applied automatically when orders are paid through the portal or through CRM. When placing the order, the discount will be reflected in the Subtotal line item, but not the Discount line item. The Discount line item reflects additional price reductions, such as manually given discounts or coupon redemptions.
The detail amount on the order will reflect the discounted price.
The detail amount on the invoice will reflect the discounted price.
There will be a GL Account entry, "Invoice Discount," for the amount that was discounted from the order.
