Discounting By Quantity Purchased (Kits)

Kits are used to sell specific products that are bundled together using a single SKU. For example, configure a kit if the customer is required to buy the advertised quantity of product (e.g. buy one, get one half price).

When a kit is sold, only the discounted products display on the customer’s receipt.

Create kit SKU

  1. From the Ascend Desktop, select the View menu > Kits.

  2. On the toolbar, click the Add button. The Add Kit dialog box displays.

  3. In the Description field, enter a description for the bundled products.
    Sherpa tip: This name does not display receipts, so make it something meaningful to your employees.
  4. A SKU is automatically generated based on the entered description, but can be overwritten.
    Sherpa tip: Enter an easy to remember value in the SKU field, e.g. 2FOR1SOCK. Kits cannot be searched by description.
  5. (optional) Click the Print Barcode button to generate a product label for scanning.
  6. Click the Save button.
