Because there is no option to adjust the price while making a Corporate Shop order for an associate, you have to create inventory items with negative prices called Discount SKUs. The Discount SKUs display the same as any regular inventory item with the ability to be added to the cart. The SKU’s negative price will deduct from the total of whatever is being purchased.

You create a Discount SKU the same way you’d create any inventory item; however, they must have the following:
Name the item “Discount” or a similar variation that your admins will be able to locate in the Corporate Shop.
In the Add Price and Discounts pop-up, the Price you enter should be a negative number.
For example, if you want a discount of $1, then enter -1.
Discount SKUs should only be available in the Corporate store.
There should be no volume entered in the CV, QV, or Bonus fields. This is best served with a Volume Adjustment SKU that can be created with a similar process.
Applying Discounted SKUs
To apply a Discounted SKU you simply add it to the cart as you would with any inventory item. The SKU’s negative price will deduct from the total of whatever is being purchased.
Updating the Quantity of the SKU acts as a multiplier for the discount. For example, a Discount SKU with a price of $-1.00 and a quantity of 20, will have a total of $-20.00.
