New Price Promotion

New Price promotions will allow a temporary reduction in the price of some items for a certain period of time. This type of promotion can be used to drive the product interest and entice new customers.

With the Price Reduction Promotion type, only one discount type can be set up — the new price for promoted items. For example, if a regular item price is $5.95, a new price for the item can be set at $.5.25.

    • The initial retail price for the promoted item is $1.19.
    • The promotion price is $1.00.
    • The reimbursement amount is $0.19.
