Sales Invoices - Add Discount Amount not just Percent

Started by James Cooper in Feature Requests | Done!

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.

Hey Everyone, happy to let you know that discounts by both amount and a percentage is now available in new invoicing! For all in the UK and regions that haven't got this as yet - the team are ramping up the release, and if not already, it'll be with you over the next few weeks.

We have great detail on using discounts in our Xero Central article for this, and I've also created a little demo for you all - see here :)
