Applying SC/PWD discounts for Table Management (Bill-level Discount):

Bill-level discount will be used when a SC/PWD share a meal with non SC/PWD individuals and would like to split the bill equally

In the following steps, we will guide you through the process where we consider a scenario of three people having dinner together, and one of them is a Senior Citizen (SC)

  1. Go to "POS & Payment

  2. Select "a table" where your customers will be seated at

  3. After selecting the table, a pop-up will be displayed, enter the customer details accordingly and tap "OK" to proceed

    1. Number of pax (Total Customers)

    2. Senior Citizen

    3. Person with disability

  4. Select the category followed by products that your customer is ordering

  5. Tap on "Add & Close" to save the products

  6. Tap on "Next" followed by "Back to POS" to add the orders to the table

  7. Before proceeding with payment, tap on the table to show the orders

  8. Tap on the "discount icon" to proceed to choose the discounts

  9. Choose the appropriate discount (depending if the bill is sharing with a SC/PWD). In this case, the bill is shared with a SC, hence only SC discount will be displayed

  10. Tap on "Add & Close" to save the discount

  11. The discount will be calculated automatically and displayed at the bottom of the table details

    This is how the discount is calculated:

    P13.50 / 3 pax = P4.5 (To find out per pax cost)

    Only 1 pax is SC, hence P4.5 * 20% SC discount = P0.90

  12. Tap on "Payment" to proceed to choose the payment method

  13. Select the "payment method" that your customer wishes to use for payment

  14. A transaction approved page will be displayed once payment has been successfully made

Here's a step-by-step video guide:
