UserTag discount_space Documentation <<EOF
The discount-space is rather equivalent to the values-space functionality.
Interchange keeps discount information in a single hash at $Vend::Session->{discount}.
This is fine except when you start using multiple shopping carts to represent different
portions of the store and fundamentally different transactions; any common item codes
will result in one cart's discounts leaking into that of the other cart...
Consequently, we can use a discount space to give a different namespace to various discounts.
This can be used in parallel with mv_cartname for different shopping carts.
Set up a master hash of different discount namespaces in the session. Treat the default one
as 'main' (like Interchange does with the cart). When discount space is called and a name
is given, point the $Vend::Session->{discount} to the appropriate hashref held in this master
Some options:
clear - this will empty the discounts for the space specified, after switching to that space.
current - this will not change the namespace; it simply returns the current space name.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
