Applying Promotions on Category/Item Level

Restaurants can offer special promotions or discounts to the guests on special events. The promotional pricing can be applied to the entire group of items in the store. Rather than changing the price of items individually, you can create a promotion rule that will apply to all the items in a category. Also, you can apply the promotion rule to the individual items and set the start and end date of the promotion rule. 

Setup the Promotion Rule

You can customize the promotion rules here, such as the start and end date/time of the promotion, price of the item during the promotional period, and whether the promotion should keep repeating without any end date. For example, you can offer promotional prices for summer holidays, weekends, clearance sales, etc. Below are the steps to set up the promotion rule in Quantic. 

  1. Navigate to the Promotions in the left navigation menu.
  1. Select the Promotion Rule tab as shown in the screenshot.
  2. Click to create a new promotion rule.
  1. A new window will appear here. You can create a new rule and customize it the way you want. Below are the descriptions.
    • Rule name: Enter the name of the promotion rule such as 10% off on cakes, Happy Hours, Friday 20% off, etc.
    • Start Date: Select the start date of this promotion rule. From this date onwards, the promotion rule can be applied to items. So if you select April/17/2022 as the start date, the promotion rule will come into effect from the 17th of April.
    • End Date: Select the end date of this promotion rule. The promotion rule will end on this date. If you select April/24/2022 as the end date, this promotion will end on the 24th of April.
    • Repeat: Tap the Repeat button if you want the promotion rule to keep repeating every day, without any end date. This will apply the same promotional price every day on the associated items.
  1. Enter the amount next to the day. The amount should be in numbers. So, if you want to offer the 10% off on cakes, enter 10 next to Friday, select PCT (percent) in Amt Type, and select (➖) in the Operator Type. Below are some important abbreviations to help set up the rules.
    • PCT: Percentage%. For example, 10%.
    • AMT: Amount. For example, $10.
    • Operator (➖): Apply this operator when you want to offer a discount. For example, to activate the 10% off on items, simply put 10 in Amount and (➖) in Operator.
    • Operator (➕): Apply this operator when you want to increase the price of items. For example, to raise the price of items by 10%, simply put 10 in Amount and (➕) in Operator.
    • Operator (=): Apply this operator when you want to override the existing amount of the item. For example, if you put 10 in the Amount field and select (=) operator, the existing price of the associated item will be overridden to $10.
  2. Next, you should select the start and end time to choose the duration during which you want the promotion rule to remain in effect during the day. For example, you want the 10% off on cakes promotion rule to stay active between 10:00 am to 11:00 pm, so select 10:00 am as the Start Time and 11:00 PM as the End Time.
  1. Select Yes in the Affect Modifier field if you want the promotion rule to be applied to the associated modifiers as well. Let’s understand this with an example of an item – Hot Wings. It is usually served with a Sweet Chilly modifier. So, there can be two scenarios – first, you want the promotion rule to be applied on the modifier as well, and second, you want to exclude the modifier from the promotion rule. Let’s see the calculations in both scenarios.

Scenario 1. Applying the promotion rule on item and modifier.

You apply a 10% off promotion rule on Hot Wings and select Yes in the Affect Modifier field; the final price will be calculated on Hot Wings + Sweet Chilly, as given below.

Price of Hot Wings = $5.00

Price of Sweet Chilly = $1.00

Total Price = $6.00

Final price after applying the promotion rule (10% off) = $5.40.

Scenario 2. Applying the promotion rule on item only.

You apply a 10% off promotion rule on Hot Wings and select No in the Affect Modifier field; the 10% off will be applied on the item only and the modifier will be excluded from it. The final price will be calculated as given below.

Price of Hot Wings = $5.00

Price of Sweet Chilly = $1.00

Final price after applying the promotion rule (10% off) = $5.50.

Don’t forget to click the Save button to save the changes.

  1. The added promotion rules will appear under the Promotion Rule tab, as shown in the screenshot above.
  2. The Start and End Date will also appear next to the promotion rules.
  3. The under Status symbolizes the promotion rule is active and  means a promotion rule is inactive. You can tap on the or to reverse the action.

Setup the Promotion

Once you have set up the promotion rules, it’s time to create an event and associate a promotion rule with it. This section will allow you to choose employees who can apply the promotion rule to an item and the service areas and terminals where the promotion rule can be applied. For example, you have an Easter Event around the corner. And you want to offer 10% off on chocolate truffles. Here is how you can do it – create a promotion rule called 10% off on chocolate truffles, create a promotion called the Easter Event, and associate the chocolate truffles item with Easter Event. Follow this path to associate an item with specific promotion – Catalog > select chocolate truffles cake > Additional Settings > Enable Event.

  1. Tap the Promotion tab as shown in the screenshot above.
  2. Click to create a new promotion.
  1. A new window will appear, here you can create an event and customize it the way you want.
    • Event Name: Enter the event name. For example, Easter Event.
    • Select Rule: Tap this field and select the promotion rule from the drop-down. This will associate the event with the selected promotion rule, and the preset prices will apply during the promotional period. For example, you can select 10% off on cake promotional rules for the Easter Event.
    • Employees: Select the employees to authorize them to apply this promotional price. Other employees won’t be able to apply the Promotion.
    • Service Areas: Select the service areas where you want this promotion to be applicable.
    • Terminals: Select the terminals where you want this promotion to be applicable.
  1. Once done, please click the Save button.
  1. The added events will appear under the Promotion tab as shown in the screenshot above.
  2. The under Status symbolizes the promotion rule is active and  means a promotion rule is inactive. You can tap on the or to reverse the action.

Associate an item with the promotion

Once you have created the promotion and set up the rules, the next step is to associate the items with an apt event. It allows you to offer the items as per the rules set in the promotional rule. For example, you can set the chocolate truffle to be associated with the Easter Event (10% off promotion rule). 

Note: You can also associate the entire category with a promotion. This will apply the promotion rule to all the items in that category. To apply the category-level promotion, go to the Catalog > Category > select category from the list > Additional Settings and tap the checkbox next to the Enable Event. Now select the event to be applied and click Save.

  1. Navigate to the Catalog section on the left panel.
  1. Click the Items tab and tap on the item that you want to associate with an event.
  1. Go to the Additional Settings tab, select the Enable Event option and select the promotion from the Event List. The preset rules of the promotion will be applicable to this item. In this example, we have associated the chocolate truffle cake with an Easter Event promotion, and during that period, the chocolate truffle cake will be offered at 10% less price.
  2. Once done, click Save.
  1. Take a look at this QLite screen. We are trying to order the chocolate truffle cake during the Easter Event promotion period. The Chocolate Truffle (priced at $6.00) is added to the cart.
  1. Once the Chocolate Trufffe is added to the cart, the Easter Event is written underneath the chocolate truffle cake. The revised item price will be displayed next to the item. Here, you can see the actual price of chocolate truffle cake was $6.00, but during the Easter Event (10% off on cakes), the new price comes out to be $5.40.
  2. Now the guests can pay for the order and enjoy their meal.
