German term or phrase: Bonrabatt
I can't really give a whole lot of context here, as this term appears in a flow chart about discounts. All that I can say is that it appears in brackets after "Kundenrabatt": "Kundenrabatt (Bonrabatt)". And all that my research has told me is that it is different from an "Artikelrabatt", and more similar to but not quite the same thing as a "Kundenrabatt". Any ideas? :-)

voucher/coupon discount

I would imagine that this is a voucher discount (a customer receives a 5€ discount off purchases or a specific item when presenting a voucher), whereas the Artikelrabatt is a discount that applies on a particular item (for example 5€ off a certain pair of trousers).

Both provide the customer with a discount, but the Bonrabatt would be upon presentation of a voucher or coupon.

Hope that helps.

Bon-Rabatt in %
Es kann auf den aktuell bearbeiteten Kassenbon ein prozentualer Gesamtrabatt, d.h. auf alle Positionen gewährt werden. Ein Beispiel hierfür
wäre eine Reduzierung des gesamten Beleges, d.h. jeder Artikel anteilig,
um 3 %.
