- Apply on Product, Product is Skirt
- Qualifying Quantity is 2
- Promotion is on Free Qty and Free Qty is 1
"Buy 2 Get 1 Free"
Executive: Yes you are right and you have not added date,time, and lot details which mean promotion is applicable all the times on all Lots available for the product. So you can schedule it for specific Date & Time and for selective Lot no as well.
Mrs Chopra: Alright.
Executive: Ok we save it and move on to Sales Invoice, where in we sale the product. Here we click on customer, create a new customer if its the first visit else select his name from the existing ones.
Then we select product which customer wants (selecting) "Skirt", click enter key which gradually take us to Qty where we type 2 and as we click enter key the free qty column will show 1 as free qty which is as per the promotion we set buy 2 get 1 free. and 3 qty will be taken out from stock and entries will be maintained.
