Overview

The Deal Price promotion type provides the flexibility to allow for Multi-Buy savings (though for simple multi-buy the Buy one get one free or Bundle Price promotion types should be used), as well more complex promotions based on what the customer has in their basket.

The following actions that can be performed with the Deal Price promotion type:

  • Cheapest Item Free

  • When the promotion is valid to be applied, the cheapest selected item in the basket will be used to establish how much discount to apply. The amount to be discounted can either be distributed across matched lines (based on the Apply Discount to field), or applied solely to the cheapest item, depending on the Apportion Discount field. When the discount is being apportioned across the lines, the value of each line to be discounted will be used to establish how much discount should be applied to that line.

  • Fixed Price

  • When the promotion is valid to be applied, the items matched will be reduced to a combined price, as defined in the Fixed Price field. The reductions against the line will be split based on the value of those lines. The items that are reduced is dependant upon the Apply Discount to field - either to the products matched or to specified product(s).

  • Reduce all items by % or value

  • When the promotion is valid to be applied, all items matched will be reduced based upon the percentage or value defined. The reductions against lines will be split based on the value of those lines. The items that are reduced is dependant upon the Apply Discount to field - either to the products matched or to specified product(s).

  • Reduce cheapest item by % or value

  • When the promotion is valid to be applied, the cheapest item matched will be reduced based upon the percentage or value defined. The item to be reduced is dependant upon the Apply Discount to field - either to the products matched or to specified product(s), where the cheapest item will be selected from those products.

  • Reduce cheapest item to fixed price

  • When the promotion is valid to be applied, the cheapest item matched will be reduced to the price specified in the Cheapest Item Price field. The item to be reduced is dependant upon the Apply Discount to field - either to the products matched or to specified product(s), where the cheapest item will be selected from those products.


Criteria

For the Deal Price promotion type, the Criteria specification is extended to provided greater flexibility. As part of this, Criteria Groups can be specified, where each group must be satisfied to allow the promotion to be applied. As standard, Basket, Campaign/Coupon and Timeband criteria can be specified.

Up to 3 Product Criteria groups can be created, within which one or more Products or Product Attributes can be specified, along with a quantity required for that Product or Attribute. Where multiple Products are defined in a Product Group, any item matched from the basket against the group will indicate that the group is valid (depending on the quantity specified if greater than 1). Similarly for Product Attributes, if multiple values are specified, only one must be matched for that attribute to indicate that the group is valid (again, depending on the quantity specified if greater than 1).

An example use of these groups would be to allow a promotion to be applied only when two items with the 'T-SHIRTS' Product Attribute are found in the basket, and where one item with the 'SHORTS' Product Attribute is found in the basket. In this scenario there would be two Product Criteria groups, the first with a product attribute of 'T-SHIRTS' and a quantity of two, and the second with a Product Attribute of 'SHORTS' defined within it. The discount to be applied to this scenario would be defined based on the settings listed above.
