Apply discounts to unit price

This control is not available in versions of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 prior to cumulative update 7 for AX 2012 R2.

Select this check box to apply item discounts to each unit of an item when the items are included on a single transaction line.

For example, the price of an item is 0.99. A cashier sells three of the items to a customer, which causes each item to be eligible for a 50 percent discount promotion. The items are added to the same transaction line as 3* item 1001. If the check box is selected, the discount is calculated as (0.99*.5) = .495 per item. When this amount is rounded down, the total price for the three items is calculated as .49 * 3 = 1.47.

If the check box is cleared, the discount in this example is calculated as (0.99*3)*.50) = 2.97*.5 = 1.485. When this amount is rounded down, the total price for the three items equals 1.48.

NoteNote

The results may vary depending on how currency rounding is set up for your organization.

Negative adjustment

This feature is not implemented in this release and might be removed from future releases.

Manually calculate multiple item discounts

Select this check box to skip the calculation of multiple-item discounts during scanning at the point of sale. After scanning all the items in a transaction, and before applying a payment, you must click Calculate total in Retail POS.

For example, a grocery store that often processes transactions with hundreds of items would select this check box.

This control is available only if Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 is installed.

Receipt transaction type

Select the type of receipt that the format is used for.

  • Return – The format is used for transactions for which the total amount is negative.

  • Payment – The format is used for customer payments.

  • Training sale – The format is used for sales transactions in training mode.

Format

Type the mask for the receipt number. Use the mask characters in the following list. For mask characters that do not represent date information, each occurrence of the character represents a character in the data that you are including in the receipt number. Therefore, you must repeat the mask character as many times as the length of the data requires.

  • # – The receipt number

  • S – The store number

  • T – The terminal number

  • C – The staff ID number

  • ddd – The day of the year, from 1 through 366

  • MM – The two-digit month

  • DD – The two-digit day of the month

  • YY – The two-digit year

Characters other than the characters in the previous list appear as themselves in the receipt number. If you intend to scan bar codes for receipts, do not use special characters in the mask.

For example, the format for the receipt number is PSSSSTTTT######. Therefore, a receipt for terminal 11 in store 4 might have the number P00040011001234.

Independent sequence

Select this check box to indicate that the format for the receipt number uses a unique number sequence. Clear the check box to indicate that the format uses the default number sequence.
