Suppliers are able to create specials that will appear in ESP. Products that are added to specials will be displayed in the Specials section of ESP Web. Click on the Specials tab from the ESP Updates homepage to create and manage specials.
Create a Special
To create a new special, go to the Specials tab in ESP Updates.
Click on the Create a Special button.
You can upload a flyer, which users of ESP can see and share. Click on the Choose button to browse your computer and select a file. Then, click on the Upload button. A preview of the flyer will be displayed in the preview box.
Next, enter information about this special. The required fields are denoted by a red asterick(*). Use the dropdown next to Special Type to select what kind of special you are creating. You may want to enter the details of the special in the Description of Special field, such as "Enter Promo Code 'Summer' to receive $100 discount!". To enter a discount amount, you will need to select percentage or value before you are able to enter the amount.
After adding information about this special, click on the Save button. You can then begin adding products by clicking on the Add Products button.
The Add Products to Special window will open. You can enter search terms in the Search Within box, use the guided navigation on the left, or sort the products to locate the product(s) you would like to add to this special. Use the checkbox on the product listing to select it. Then, click on the Add Products button. A product can only be added to one special at a time.
After you have added a product, you can show the item as "On Special" by selecting it using the checkbox and then click on the Display On button. You can take the item off display by checking the product listing and clicking on the Display Off button. You can also use the Delete button to remove selected products from this special.
If you would like to display a table for this special on the Full Details section of ESP, enter information in the Special Details area.
You can use the Title box to enter a heading for the table. Then, you can use the columns and rows to create a display for this special. In the example below, the display table has been used to show the pricing for this special. It is important to keep in mind that even though the specials display table has been used to show pricing, it will not replace the existing product pricing, nor will it be displayed when a distributor is placing an order.
To save the Specials Display, scroll to the top and click on Save.
After creating a special, it will appear in the Specials listings. You can click on the Edit button to make changes to a special, including adding and removing products.
Once a special is made inactive, you cannot edit it.
