Editing a discount
To edit a discount, click Details on the corresponding row in the discount list. The discount form will be displayed, letting you change the following settings:
The code that the customer must enter to claim the discount. This is the unique identifier for the discount and so cannot be changed once the discount has been created — you can however delete the discount and create a new one.
The amount to be discounted: either a fixed amount, a percentage off products, a percentage off the delivery value (which can be used to create discounts offering free delivery), or a multibuy discount of the form buy X get Y free (with the cheapest products being free).
Whether the discount applies to all items or just specific products and categories. This setting affects the value of discounts giving a percentage of products, and controls which items count towards any minimum order limit.
The date from which the discount will be available. If this field is left blank, the discount is available immediately.
The date after which the discount will no longer be available. If this field is left blank, the discount will not expire.
The minimum order requirement: either no restriction, or a minimum order value or number of items.
