Discount Type

Store supports two discount types: Discount Matched Items, and Buy X Get Y Discount.

Discount Matched Items means that the discount options below will apply to all items in the order meeting your criteria. For example, if you have restricted the discount to a particular category, then you want to provide a discount to all items purchased in that category. You can further restrict the discount to only orders where the customer has purchased a minimum quantity (Purchase Quantity) or minimum total spent (Purchase Total) using the options below.

Buy X Get Y Discount means that the discount applies to additional items added to the cart. For example, if you wanted to provide a "buy one get 50% off a second item" discount, then you will be matching the first item purchased (based on product category or other options), but the actual 50% discount applies to the second item purchased, not the first item matched. You can customize the number of initial items which must be purchased (Step Quantity) and the number of items which will receive the discount (Discount Quantity) using the options below.

Purchase Quantity

This option only applies when the discount type is Discount Matched Items. This lets you restrict the discount to only those orders where the customer has purchased a minimum number of matching items.

Purchase Total

This option only applies when the discount type is Discount Matched Items. This lets you restrict the discount to only those orders where the customer has purchased a minimum total value of matching items.

Step Quantity

This option only applies when the discount type is Buy X Get Y Discount. This specifies the number of matching items which must be purchased to activate the discount. For example, if you were to configure a "buy two get one free" discount, you would set the Step Quantity to 2.

Discount Quantity

This option only applies when the discount type is Buy X Get Y Discount. This specifies the number of additional items which can be purchased at the discounted rate. For example, if you were to configure a "buy two get one free" discount, you would set the Discount Quantity to 1.

Base Discount

A flat rate base discount amount which will apply if this discount is applicable to the order.
