Discounting has been proven as an effective way to promote your business and motivate customers to make purchases. As you run your business, you may find it beneficial to occasionally offer discounts to new and existing customers. This tutorial will show you ways on how to setup and apply discounts within ServiceWorks.

Applying the Discount
Now that your discount is properly setup, you are ready to apply this discount to jobs within service works.
In the Edit Job menu, scroll down to the Charges section. Here you can see the current totals for parts and/or labor attached to the job.
