Xline POS Special offer

Summary  

A new option has been added to the POS Special Offers called Buy X Get Y Free. This allows items to be added to an approved list that qualify for the offer; in POS once the number of items to be purchased matches the ‘X’ value, the number of items in the ‘Y’ value will be discounted for free.  

Configuration  

The new offer is now available on the existing Special Offer Lists form. There is an additional option when adding a new offer (Stock -> Pricing -> 7. POS Special Offers -> Add -> Option 2 Buy X products get Y free). The offer utilises a new wizard form for ease-of-use for the user.

In October 2023 I joined the team as part of Intact’s Graduate Programme. My academic journey began at the University of Liverpool, where I studied English Language and Literature. Feeling that one degree and three years in Liverpool weren't enough, I stayed and earned a Master's degree in Creative and Critical Writing. During my studies, I wrote for various platforms, including a student newspaper, blog articles for a famous Liverpool attraction, and even directed a play. I knew I wanted to pursue a career where I could write daily, leading me to explore the world of content marketing. At Intact, I write blog articles for our website and campaigns, compile and write content for our customer newsletter, and manage our social media channels. I’m committed to creating credible, trustworthy content, and nurturing the sense of community among our customers and staff. I enjoy the fast-paced nature of my work, where each completed task is followed by ten uncompleted ones. One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues, seeking their insights and knowledge for fresh and valuable content. Outside of work, I’ll be at the gym, out for a run (jog), or exploring markets in London with friends.
