Creating a $ Discount Item Promotion
An Item $ Discount promotion will reduce the sub-total of specific items in the shopping carts by a defined dollar value. This will affect any item associated with the promotion. An Item $ Discount promotion can be tied up to a promotional code that the customer must enter during checkout. If you choose not to use a promotional code, all customers will get the promotion in their shopping cart.
The first step when creating an item promotion is to open the Promotions tab of your MyDakis account.
