To create a custom discount in Toast, navigate to the Other Setup section for Discounts.
By default, Toast has four Standard Discounts (below) enabled for all new Toast customers.
The Active column allows the user to enable/disable the discount the POS.
The Type column describes how and to what the discount will apply.
The Name column allows the user to change the name as it will appear in the POS.
The Permissions column allows the user to configure whether or not a Managers Approval is needed to apply the discount in Toast.
In addition to the Standard Discounts, Toast allows for an unlimited number of Custom Discounts to be created.
All Custom Discounts will be listed (below) as an overview and, like Standard Discounts, can be edited at any time.
If an existing Custom Discount needs to be altered, the name of the discount is a link to the setup page for that discount.
To create a new Custom Discount, click the Add Custom Discount button.
Setting up a Discount
Whether setting up a new discount or editing an existing discount, the setup process is simple and easy.
Start by clicking the name of the Discount to enter the setup page. On the next screen you can customize the properties of the discount and then Save them.
When the discount has been setup, Save and Publish to add it instantly to the Toast POS app and begin using it.

Item Level Discounts
An Item Level Discount is a discount that will apply to a single item or multiple items, but not all, as opposed to being applied to the entire check.
