Discounting an Invoice

There are several ways to discount an invoice in Spectra/myStratus. You can discount the entire invoice with an Invoice Discount or discount one or more individual items on the invoice using a Line Item Discount. Instructions for these two methods are included in this topic.

Another option (introduced in 2016) is to create special promotional or coupon items in your price list that can be applied to an invoice. These items can be limited to a certain time period and include percentage/dollar off discounts, free item offers, and loyalty rewards. For details, refer to Creating a Coupon or Promotion and Using Coupons.
