Business value

Very often retailers want to quickly create new promotions on certain items to match prices with their competitors or meet their sales targets. This new feature allows discounts to be applied after all the existing discounts are applied, enabling that scenario.

Feature details

Without this feature, if a retailer wants to create a discount that gets compounded with the existing discounts, the retailer needs to create a new discount with the discount concurrency mode configured as "Compounded." Given that there could be other existing discounts on an item that are marked as "Exclusive" or "Best price," however, there is no guarantee that this new discount will apply on all the items.

With this feature, we enabled a new discount concurrency mode called "Always apply" that will be available for simple discounts and threshold discounts. All the discounts that are created using the "Always apply" mode will get applied on the appropriate items after all the existing periodic discounts are applied. That means they will apply to the exclusive and best price discounts as well. The discounts will apply before manual discounts, though, such as cashier-added discounts.
