2)      Level

·         Users can choose where the discounts should be applied.

·         The levels will be Category/Subcategory/Menu Item.

·         If user selects only one menu item in each match, then it should be treated as mandatory combo. User can map multiple menu items too.

Note: If multiple menu item is mapped for the combo, it should be treated as normal combo.

3)      Serving size – The serving size is based on the chosen level. All the available serving sizes for the chosen category/subcategory/menu item should be shown in the drop down with check box option. “All” option should be provided in the drop down.

4)      Quantity – Number of quantities of the menu item to which the discount needs to be applied.

6)      Price of Each Item- User can set a discount price for the level based on the quantity.

Note: If incase the combo discount is applied for the menu, then the discount price should be taken for the cost price calculation.

Calculation for price per each item should be in the proportionate form based on the combo discount setting rules selected.

7)      Include Modifier Price- It is a check box. Users can check or uncheck the box to include or exclude the modifier price. By default, the include modifier price should be “Yes”.

Note: If include modifier price is checked as “Yes”, then the modifier price should be included in the discounted price.

If include modifier price is checked as “No”, then the discount price for the combo should exclude the modifier price. The modifier price should be calculated exclusively with the combo discount price.

8)      Add: User can click onto the ADD icon to create multiple combo menus.

Note: Check box should be provided for all the drop-down options instead of multiple selection.

Types of combo:

  Users can create multiple combo option sets. 

  User can create mandatory combo by defining only one menu item in one match with quantity “1”. So that customers will be forced to select the defined menu items in the matches.

  User can create optional combo by assigning multiple menu items/category/subcategory. Customer can select the items they wish to order from the available matches.

 

 

 

Combo discount setting rules:

  The field name should change accordingly based on the rule selection.

1)      Set Price- To set a fixed price.

2)      Percentage- Discount percentage on the price of the combo menu.

Price for each item field calculation:

Consider the menu item 1 costs 30$ and menu item 2 costs 20$ is added for the combo. The “Set Price” for that combo is set as 10.99$.

Then the price for each item should be calculated using the proportionate.

Total costs = Menu item 1 cost + Menu Item 2 cost = 50$ (in the above-mentioned example).

Calculation:

Price for each item for menu item 1 = (Menu Item 1 cost/Total cost) * set price amount

                                                            = (30/50) * 10.99

                                                            = 6.594
