Missed Promotions


Missed promotion information is provided where the basket request included the flag get_missed_promotions with a value of true.  For more information on the supported fields that can be provided with a basket request, see the Basket Request Schema XML, or JSON.


Missed promotions are promotions that were available to be applied to the basket based on start and end dates, timebands, basket criteria and coupon criteria, and were partially matched against products in the basket.  As such they could be applied if the customer were to add more products to the basket.  This may be to increase the quantity of products already matched against the basket, or to add additional products to the basket.


The missed promotion details will include the required actions to cause the promotion to be applied when the basket is re-submitted, and the benefits that the customer is expected to receive.
