Note that if more than one product is defined in this list, it means*all*of these products can be included as free.

## How They are Applied

### Standard Mode

*By Total* discounts, as the rest of discounts, are applied based on *Priority* and *Apply Next Discount/Promotion* (though they are always, even not explicitly defined, preventing other discounts to be applied once they are).

When computing total ticket price to determine whether it is possible to apply or not the discount, the lines that are taken into account are the ones that do not have a discount with a higher priority that prevents others to be applied. If it is possible to apply the discount it will only be applied to the lines that are applicable, this is the ones that participated in the total amount computation.

For example.

Products: A price 10€ B price 20€

Discounts: Fixed 10% percentage to product A, priority 1, stops chain 5% By total ticket if >=45€, priority 2

Ticket 1:

A x 1 10.00 -10% -1.00 B x 1 20.00 Total 29.00€

Ticket 2:

A x 1 10.00 -10% -1.00 B x 2 40.00 Total 49.00€

In this case it is not possible to apply By Total discount because only line with product B is computed for total as line with product A has already been applied with a discount with higher priority that prevents others to be applied on top.

Ticket 2:

A x 1 10.00 -10% -1.00 B x 3 60.00 -5% -3.00 Total 66.00€

Now there ticket has a price enough to be applied with By Total, it is only applied to line B as A is already blocked.

### Best Deal Case Mode

When working in Best Deal Mode, *By Total* discounts are calculated when the ticket is about to be paid. At this moment the ticket is evaluated with the available *By Total* discounts and with the rest of available discounts and it is applied the best of the cases.

Following the previously defined example:

Ticket 1:

A x 1 10.00 -10% -1.00 B x 3 60.00 Total 69.00€

Before paying, it would be seen in this way. When it is going to be paid Best Deal Case is computed having these two options:

Option 1 (By Total is not computed):

A x 1 10.00 -10% -1.00 B x 3 60.00 Total69.00€

Option 2 (By Total is computed but not other ones):

A x 1 10.00 -5% -0.50 B x 3 60.00 -5% -3.00 Total66.50€

In this case **Option 2** would be selected because the total discount is higher than in Option 1.
