Zen Cart uses the concept of a sale to apply discounts to an entire store catalog or to certain product categories. Unlike products marked as Special and products with quantity discounts, Zen Cart does not display the discounted products with other visual cues other than showing the discounted price in red.

SaleMaker allows you to edit product pricing by category.
