Represents a discount that applies to one or more line items in an order.

Fixed-amount, order-scoped discounts are distributed across all non-zero line item totals. The amount distributed to each line item is relative to the amount contributed by the item to the order subtotal.


Name Description


A unique ID that identifies the discount only within this order.

Max Length 60

The catalog object ID referencing CatalogDiscount.

Max Length 192
integer (64-bit)

The version of the catalog object that this discount references.


The discount's name.

Max Length 255

The type of the discount.

Discounts that do not reference a catalog object ID must have a type of FIXED_PERCENTAGE or FIXED_AMOUNT.


The percentage of the discount, as a string representation of a decimal number. A value of 7.25 corresponds to a percentage of 7.25%.

percentage is not set for amount-based discounts.

Max Length 10

The total declared monetary amount of the discount.

amount_money is not set for percentage-based discounts.


The amount of discount actually applied to the line item.

The amount represents the amount of money applied as a line-item scoped discount. When an amount-based discount is scoped to the entire order, the value of applied_money is different than amount_money because the total amount of the discount is distributed across all line items.

Map<string, string>


Application-defined data attached to this discount. Metadata fields are intended to store descriptive references or associations with an entity in another system or store brief information about the object. Square does not process this field; it only stores and returns it in relevant API calls. Do not use metadata to store any sensitive information (such as personally identifiable information or card details).

Keys written by applications must be 60 characters or less and must be in the character set [a-zA-Z0-9_-]. Entries can also include metadata generated by Square. These keys are prefixed with a namespace, separated from the key with a ':' character.

Values have a maximum length of 255 characters.

An application can have up to 10 entries per metadata field.

Entries written by applications are private and can only be read or modified by the same application.

For more information, see Metadata.


Indicates the level at which the discount applies. For ORDER scoped discounts, Square generates references in applied_discounts on all order line items that do not have them. For LINE_ITEM scoped discounts, the discount only applies to line items with a discount reference in their applied_discounts field.

This field is immutable. To change the scope of a discount, you must delete the discount and re-add it as a new discount.
