Is there a way to NOT allow discounts on specific items?

I give my staff a discount on products but I do not want to allow a discount on travel size items.  Is there a way to mark them so they can not be discounted?

Hi @salon208 — welcome to the seller community! ✌🏻

 

Thanks for surfacing this. Currently, we don't offer the option to restrict discounts on specific items, though I can see how this feature would be helpful for many businesses like yours.

 

I'll be sharing your suggestion with our Product Liaison team, who is constantly working to improve our products based on seller feedback. We'll certainly circle back with any other developments that may be useful.

 

Please keep in touch for updates and if you have any other questions, let us know!

Re: Is there a way to NOT allow discounts on specific items?

We are very interested in this also.

 

We are a small non--profit that sells some merchandise but also uses Square for Events and Membership purchase. We would like to restrict discounts to only apply to merchandise categories.

 

If I want to offer a special rate for a specific event, I would rather use variable prices. 

 

Can you provide any insight into when Square might provide this function, something like a 'Disable Discounts' toggle on a Category or Item level? Is there another way we could handle this?

 

We've tried to handle this procedurally but that hasn't been successful overall. We've had some lost revenue and every dollar counts!

 

Thanks! 

Chris

I'd love this feature as well.  I am a gallery/gift/yarn shop.  Some of the items I sell are on consignment, and cannot be discounted.  This would help alleviate employee error

Is there a way to get the option to discount ONLY specific items?? I know there isnt yet, but it seems like there's enough clients asking for this option for your company to get the option NOW!! Thanks

@Tom @Chad What's the hold up on this feature guys?  This really needs to happen before another laborious holiday season of manually adding discounts and correcting human-errors.

Re: Is there a way to NOT allow discounts on specific items?

Hi @Tom and @sciabica1936 - I'm on the Product team and am currently exploring around how to improve discounts. I'm hearing that you want to be able to specify which items the discount applies to which makes sense. @sciabica1936 I'd love to hear more details around what you want to accomplish with discounts and how we can best meet that need - I'll reach out so set up some time to talk if you're up for it.
