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

1. Discount a percentage (%) amount for each product: Add products to a promotion and set a percentage (%) amount to be applied to each product with the promotion.

For example: 30% off Faulding Vitamin range.

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

For example: 30% off Faulding Vitamin range, when you spend $20 or more. That is, once the customer has spent over $20, they will receive 30% off each item in their sales basket within the promotion file.
