Avanti - AMS Campaign Promotions
Updated

Buy X get Y


Operators do not have the ability to create buy x get y and price override does not exist.  If an operator wants to push out a buy X get Y free promo they can send a request to Avanti Support to set up a buy X get Y.   Please keep in mind the buy x get y promos are not supported at USC locations.  Operator managed percentage and fixed amount discounts are.

Creating Campaign Promotions for Product Groups

Create campaign promotions when you want to discount products, such as when products on your shelves may expire soon. You can discount the price by a percentage or by a specific dollar amount. Creating campaign promotions for discounted products, may first involve creating a product group.

Important

Only Avanti Markets Corporate can add sponsored and buy-one-get-one promotions. Operators can only add promotions involving percentage off and dollar amount discounts.

Promotion Logic

• The best value is used to determine which promotion to apply to cart/product for each market user based on products in the cart.
• Each product in any one order qualifies for only one promotion. If any one order has multiple promotions associated, then the who wins rule determines the promotion(s) to apply to each product.
• Applied promotion is based on the best value to the market user. Cart-level promotion does NOT automatically win.
• If a free product is redeemed, the other product-level discounts are still applied to qualifying products in the cart. You cannot use a free product redemption to qualify for other promotions (buy a Coke and chips for $2.50).
• Promotion start/end date is now set to the 12:00 AM local time for each kiosk. Recurring schedule overrides the default start/end time.
• Tax is calculated on the selling price of the taxable product.
