Promotions

Order Management supports the use of custom promotions that allow various types of discounts. Promotions can take the form of automatic sale pricing, or they can use coupon codes.

Note: If you are retrieving pricing and promotions data from a sales channel such as Salesforce B2C Commerce, promotions in Order Management are ignored.

For information on creating and managing Promotions, see Creating and Managing Promotions.
