How to use "Each M-th after X-th with Percent Discount" action

The guidance below shows how to use the action ‘Each M-th after X-th’ of Special Promotions extension.

Thanks to this action you can create promotions like ‘Buy 3 books for full price and get each second one with 15% discount’. 


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 ‘Percent Discount: each 1st, 3rd, 5th with 15% off after 5 items added to the cart’ field.

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

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 go with 20% discount.

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 a 20% discount for the ‘M’ items.

Step 7. Use conditions section of the ‘Actions’ tab to specify ‘X’ items, by which the discount is triggered.


Let’s see how the rule works. There are 5 shoes in the cart.



Kenneth Cole shoes are the 5th shoes in the cart, that is why they get 20% discount as it should be according to the rule limitations.
