You can use this feature to apply promotional offers on your store
Customers can see the offers applied directly on the cart page or 3rd step of checkout page.
A product should be in only one category. In case a product is in 2 or more categories the discount will apply for the category rule which was added first or based on priority when defined properly.
When multiple rules are defined, the priority becomes utmost important since it defines which rule needs to be checked first. If 2 rules are valid on the products that are added the cart then the rule with higher priority must be applied.
There are 3 offers available in our combo offer app these are as follows:
- Buy X Get Y products free
- Buy X number of products & Get a freebie
- Buy Product worth Rs X & Get a freebie
Buy X Get Y products free – It means customer will get Y number of products free on buying X number products but in cart there should be X+Y products. Customer will get only Y lowest price products as free.
Buy X number of products & Get a freebie – It means customer will get a freebie product that will be added by merchant itself on buying X number of products.
Buy Product worth Rs X & Get a freebie – It means customer will get a freebie product if their order total becomes equal or greater than Rs. X.
You can apply these offers at different level as per the requirement:
- Store Level
- Category Level
- Product Level
Store Level - At this level combo offer will apply all over the store.
Category Level - At this level combo offer will apply only on the selected categories, offer will not apply on un-selected categories.

You can also define the rules priority for these offers accordingly, offers will apply as per the rule priority.
A new setting has been introduced which is defined below:
Setting name: Count Product quantity
What this means is that suppose when we apply a rule i.e. Buy 2 & get a freebie, you now have a setting by which you can decide if you want the customer to get a freebie when the he buys 2 quantity of same SKU or he has to buy 2 unique products to get the offer. When the setting is set to Yes, rules will apply even if the customer adds multiple quantity of the same product.
To further understand the feature configuration in a better way lets see few cases.
Case 1: When you want to apply the rule “Buy X and Get Y free” condition . In this case Buy 2 & Get 1 rule is explained.
Select Combo offer name “Buy X and Get Y free” and then click on Add Rule
Select Applicable on - Store level
Label field: Merchant can add any name in the label say “Buy 2 Get 1”
Now make back end settings as shown in the screenshot
Store level settings:
For X>Y: It means merchant will add X value (greater value) in “No of products to be bought” and Y(smaller value) value in “No of product as freebie”. As in this scenario on buying 2 products customer get 1 free product. Merchant can add any numeric value accordingly.
Frontend screenshot: The rule will apply as shown below on the cart page.
As shown in the screen-shot above we have selected setting Count Product quantity as Yes
The customer will get 1 product free whose price is lowest among 3 products added. The rule will apply only when there are 2 products in the cart. In this case we have selected 2 quantity of the same SKU & as per rule the price of only 2 products is charged.
When Count Product Quantity is selected as No the SKU’s added in cart should be different for the rule to work and the lowest prices product among the three becomes free.
Category Level Settings:
- Category box will open when you select the category radio button. You can select particular categories on which you want to give the offer.
- On the cart page, rule will only apply for selected categories.
- The rule would work in the similar way as defined for store level.
- To apply any rule on few specific products, select Product level in Applicable On.
- In Product Sku box merchant can add any number of SKU’s separated by commas (,).
Customer will get free product only on buying these selected SKU’s.
Important: Activate from date/to date – If you want that the offer should apply for limited time period then you must add the appropriate dates in it.
**Same condition for X<Y & X=Y
X<Y: As per this condition merchant will add lower value in “Product to be bought” & higher value in “Products as free”. Like on buying 1 get 2 products free having lowest price value.
