There are two ways a $ off retail price promotion can be set up.

1. Discount a dollar amount for each product: Add products to a promotion and set a discount dollar ($) amount to be applied to each product within the promotion.

For example: $2 off selected Revlon lipsticks.

2. Set a spend amount to trigger a dollar amount discount: Add products to a promotion and setup the condition that the customer must spend a particular dollar amount before they can qualify for the discounted dollar amount on each product within that promotion.

For example: Receive $5 off Revlon Lipsticks when you spend $20 or more. That is, once the customer has spent over $20, they will receive $5 off each Revlon item in their sales basket within the promotion file.
