How to set a default discount for all subscriptions assigned directly to the reseller

Link copied to clipboard

You can reduce the subscription periodic fees for a specific reseller by providing them a discount that by default will apply to all subscriptions assigned to the reseller directly. You can manually change/remove this default discount for a specific subscription when you assign a new subscription to the reseller (or by editing an already assigned subscription).

Note that the 100% discount rate means “free service”.

To set a default discount for the reseller:

  1. Click Set default discount on the toolbar.
  2. In the Set customer’s default discount dialog, specify the default discount rate for the reseller’s subscriptions, e.g., 10.
    When you change the default discount for the reseller, e.g., from 10 to 15%, the new rate will automatically apply to all subscriptions with the Default customer discount option selected in the Periodic fee adjustment field.
