This object is used to transfer prerequisites, requirements, and conditions necessary for bonus buys in the POS interface - outbound. All the bonus buys are transferred to the specified stores or the stores in the distribution chain.
The POS’s then take the data transferred into consideration by analyzing all the articles scanned in one transaction and by determining whether the articles are being purchased in the relevant combination. If so, the special offer is granted.
The system can only distribute the information on bonus buys using a direct request. Realignment runs are not possible.
