To attract more customers, you may run 70% off sale but it may turn out to be an overall loss. So using this feature as a trick, you can set the maximum discount a customer will get.

Consider you run a flat 70% off on your store and set the maximum discount to $50 (the amount which you can afford to spend to convert a customer). Looking at the heavy discount a customer will choose to buy a $100 product. But the customer will get the product at $50 and not $70 because the maximum discount is set as $50.
