Paladin can run many sale types. For guidance and training, contact Customer Support.

Important: For multi-stores, you must enter the same supplier name for each store. If you do not do this, you will create multiple pricing plans and sale lists.
For example, do not use these variations: Sunset, sunset, sunset1, sunset2, etc.  Instead, use Sunset for each store.
