How to use "Buy X Get Y with Fixed Discount" action

The guidance below shows how to use the action ‘Buy X Get Y with Fixed Discount’ of Special Promotions extension.

Thanks to this action you can create promotions like ‘Buy 3 phones and get a camera $50 off’. 

 

Let’s observe the steps of the action configuration.

Please open Admin Panel > Promotions > Shopping Cart Price Rules (click ‘Add New Rule’ button) > Actions.

 

Step 1. Choose ‘Fixed Discount: Buy X get Y with 10$ Off’ for the ‘Apply’ field.

Step 2. Use ‘Discount Amount’ field to indicate the discount amount.

Step 3. You can specify SKUs of the individual products to which the discount should apply (these are Y items as well). If you specify both categories and SKUs like here, the discount will apply to both individual items and to products from the categories.

Step 4. Use ‘Promo Categories’ field to indicate to which categories the discounted items (Y items) should belong.

Step 5. Please use ‘Maximum Qty Discount is Applied To’ to specify maximal number of items to which the discount should apply in one order.

Step 6. Use ‘Discount Qty Step (Buy X)’ setting to indicate the number of ‘X’ items. If you specify 3 like here, it means that a customer will have to buy 3 ‘X’ items to get 20% discount for one ‘Y’ item.

Step 7. Use conditions section of the ‘Actions’ tab to specify ‘X’ items, by which the discount is triggered. In this case we indicated that ‘X’ items should be from category with ID 8 (Cell Phones).

Please be aware that ‘X’ items and ‘Y’ items can’t be the same products.
