HINT-- You'll only use Item Discounts if you use the Goldenseal accounting software for direct sales to customers who get a discount on some items.
To enter an Item Discount, follow these steps:

Name-- Enter a brief name for the branch.
The Item Discount table shows each Customer Discount, which covers a group of customers that all get the same discount.
Next to each item, type in the discount that each group of customers will get when they purchase items that have this as an item discount.
Item Discounts are used in combination with Customer Discounts-- you will need to have at least one on each, if you offer discounts on sales.
If you offer different discounts to different classes of customers, create a Customer Discount for each class. If you offer different discounts on different types of items sold, create an Item Discount for each type. You can enter a different discount amount on each combination of customer and item discount.
