Merchandise discounts applying to multiple items in the cart

When applying a merchandise discount to an order that has multiple merchandise items you may notice that the discount applies to all of the merchandise items even though the discount is set up to apply once.
Merchandise discounts will apply once per merchandise item. The same functionality is exhibited with ticket discounts, where the discount is applied once per ticket price type. 

Merchandise Example: 
​In cartDiscount
2 of Merchandise A
1 of Merchandise B
4 of Merchandise C 
Applies once for Merchandise A
Applies once for Merchandise B
Applies once for Merchandise C
Alternatively, you can create separate orders for each merchandise item to prevent the discount from applying more than once per order.
