Display discounts on invoice

Apologies if this feature already exists in the software (if it does then I’d be grateful for a howto), but I’d like to suggest a feature request of displaying discounts applied to invoices on a per-item basis.

Appreciate this is probably not a straight-forward thing to implement, but I thought I’d suggest it all the same.

On a side note, I’m absolutely loving this software - it’s proven to be a real asset to my small business! Thanks very much for developing this!

Don’t worry, it’s not difficult to implement and it is already in the pipeline.

For the time being, you can add line item with negative amount which can indicate discount.

Go to http://manager.uservoice.com/forums/202564-plugin-ideas/suggestions/4599962-plugin-discount-field-on-invoices and vote for this plugin proposal so you will be immediately notified when available.

Thanks Lubos - I’ve voted accordingly!

Any idea when this feature will be implemented?

This feature is now available in the latest version (14.1.25)

I’ve installed the latest version but can’t find discount field on sales invoice.

Well. It’s certainly there. Look for Discount column when editing individual line items.

I can’t seem to find a discount field on purchase invoices. Is there a reason why it’s not available there or is it has to be enabled from somewhere? thanks

It has been added to sales invoices and sales quotes only. Is this really something that would be useful on purchase invoices too? why?

When we negotiate a purchase, sometimes we have to look at past invoices by looking at how much discount we get previously. Most of our suppliers can give discount again if previous purchases have discounts.

By looking at our records, we can also know how much saving we get from our discounts. Our products are products with low profit margin and we sometimes depend on discounts from suppliers to gain some revenue. To keep record of this we also created an account to keep track of how much discount we get from the suppliers.

I hope that’s clear. I’m not sure if this is a common practice but our previous account software (which was a custom build) accommodates this company’s particular need.

If it’s possible to implement then i’d be so grateful. Otherwise we have to use a separate spreadsheet to keep record of these. Btw, even without it, it’s still a great software. It has helped me plenty.

I’ve added Discount column to purchase invoices and purchase orders to the latest version (14.1.29) but for a different reason.

If your supplier is sending you invoice with discount % on line items, I think it’s just a matter of convenience and consistency to have discount % column on purchase invoices too.

Thank you very much

I was trying to enter the discount and it only allow 2 digits. I can’t enter 9.5% discount on item. Is it possible to allow it? thanks

I would also like to be able to have more than 2 digits in the discount field.
