Sales Invoices - Add Discount Amount not just Percent

Started by James Cooper in Feature Requests | Working on it

It would be great to be able to add a discount to an accounts receivable invoice by either:

1. Entering a dollar figure instead of a percentage (e.g. apply a discount of $10 off that item), or
2. By entering a discounted sale figure (e.g. this normally costs $225, but I will sell to you for $200).

If necessary, Xero could calculate the percentage from the amount entered and populate the discount column accordingly.

Thanks to all here for your continued conversation around discounts by amount & percent.

I’m excited to let you know that (in Dec 18) new invoicing is on it’s way to you now, being gradually rolled out over the coming months, with some of you having it in your hands already. The new interface means it’s easier and faster to create your invoices day-to-day, with auto-save built in to make sure all changes are maintained. You’ll still have the option to switch between new & classic invoicing, while all the features become available (including discounts).

As Kelly mentioned in our previous update here, we’re committed to offering an enhanced experience on invoicing as it is today - Discount by amount and percentage are one of the team’s first features on the list to work into new invoicing, as soon as this feature has been fully released to all (now with NZ, AU, US, and those with an org in Singapore). So do stay tuned here, and we’ll be back to update this thread to “Working on it” as soon as this is in action.
