How do I discount to a fixed price?

edited July 24 in Sales CRM #1

Hey, I get that percentage-based discounts are standard.

But today I just told a client that I'd do a specific package for a round number, to fit their budget.

I still want to add the individual products... but I had to spend ages playing with numbers and adding an arbitrary 16.66666% discount to one product to hit the exact number.

Surely I should be able to add the products and then simply over-ride the total price with one of my choice - with no need for percentages?

Or - even better - I over-ride the final price and Pipedrive automatically calculates what percentage discount I've given on the whole package.

    Hi @Alex Napier Holland unfortunately currently only percentage based discount is possible, but I'm sharing your comments with our product manager who looks into the products section. Thanks for sharing.

    This is something that we are trying to figure out as well.  What would be helpful is if we could choose between percentage and dollar amount.  We are currently setting up processes for this and would like to show the discount.  It takes too much time to continue to try and find the correct percent for a package deal.

    Hi guys. For us it is the same challenge. The possibility to choose the discount between percentage and euro amount would be very helpful. Thanks a lot!

    Any news on this? It's extremely annoying not to be able to input a fixed discount. We end spending ages guessing the percentage of the amount...

    Hi @Eli 

    I wish I had news but I don't unfortunately. I'm going to keep bugging our team but I can't make any promises what is their priority compared to all other ideas in the pipeline..

    I want to second to this. I rely on fluctuating international pricing that depends on exchange rates etc. The numbers get ugly. And being able to discount a simple specific amount is a must. Accounting software solutions often offer this simple thing. Should be an essential part. Otherwise, the point of the discount section in the pipeline is lost.  

  • Is there any news here? The function would be very helpful, also for later evaluations. We currently use for this simply a product which is called discount....

  • "I'm passing on all your feedback to the team"

    When someone says that - it's a dead end... Close to 3 years after - no solution for absolute value discounts.

    passing the feedback that is..😤

  • It's disappointing that I still have to play around with 3-5 decimal place numbers whenever I want to issue a fixed price discount.

  • Hello, this is also an issue we are experiencing. It seems like a quick fix by the Pipedrive Team, I hope they can fix it soon.
