Happy Hours allows a price to be set that is temporarily different from the standard product price. The different price will be valid for a period of time set between two dates or by the day(s) of week and time. If you need to set a different price for just the duration date, use the easier function Time-based prices.

Example of how to use Happy Hours:

Let’s say in March you are organizing an event where a specific product is going to be sold at the discount price every weekend. However, starting in April the product will be sold again at the regular price.

Finally, specify the product price and use Save 07 to save the price event. You can enter the price in part 06 either exactly in EUR or, in the field Increase/Cut price, specify in % the percent value of the discount or increase, e.g. -20. The corresponding EUR price will be automatically calculated.

 

The product price will be automatically adjusted at the selected cash register for the preset period. When the preset period is over, the product price will automatically return to its original value.
