How do you handle items like bracelets which cost $6 each but drop to $5 if you buy two ?June 15, 2018 at 10:51 pm #205091
You’ve found one of the sticking points. Currently Square POS doesn’t support a function called “product bundling,” which is the way that POS and sales systems combine multiple items as a discounted “unit” at checkout. However, there is a workaround, and that’s by adding a discount in your Square system and applying that discount when a customer purchases two of the bracelets. For example: with regular pricing, two bracelets sell for $12; but you can create a $2 discount and apply that at the time of checkout, making the sale $10, and thus each bracelet just $5 after the discount.
It’s not the ideal way to do it and if you have many items with varying discounts, it can be a lot to track, but it gets the job done. Or, you can set up Square to let your staff adjust the amount of the items in the sale. The benefit to using the discount is that you can track discounts on sales and know how many discounts were applied over time. You can’t do that with price changes. I hope this answers your question. Good luck!
