How to use "Each M-th after X-th for Fixed Price" action
The guidance below shows how to use the action ‘Each M-th after X-th’ of Special Promotions extension.
The only difference of "Each M-th after X-th for Fixed Price" action from "Each M-th after X-th with Discount" action is that instead of percent discount products are discounted to a fixed amount. Thanks to this action you can create promotions like ‘Buy 3 books for full price and get each second one for $20 only’.
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 Price: each 5st, 7rd, 9th for $89.99 after 5 items added to the cart’ field.
Step 2. Use ‘Discount Amount’ field to indicate the amount to which ‘M’ products should be discounted. If you specify 20 like here, the ‘M’ products will cost $20 after the discount rule is applied.
Step 3. Use ‘Max Amount of Discount’ field to limit discount amount that customers can receive while using a promotion.
Step 4. Use ‘Each M-th product’ field to indicate a discount step. If you indicate ‘2’ like here, it means that each second item that meets the rule conditions will cost $20.
Step 5. Please use ‘Maximum Qty Discount is Applied To’ to specify maximal number of items to which the discount should be applied in one order.
Step 6. Use ‘Qty 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 ‘M’ items for a fixed price.
Step 7. Use conditions section of the ‘Actions’ tab to specify ‘X’ items, by which the discount is triggered.
