Promotions benefits

Abstract

Overview of benefits that you can apply to a promotion.

Benefits are the possible discounts you select to apply to a promotion. Benefits are applied to a customer's order when it meets the qualification conditions for the promotion. You can apply multiple benefits to one promotion.

Note

To exclude a sellable item from promotion benefits, on the promotion page, in the Items section, click the plus (+) sign and, in the Add dialog box, select a catalog, click the Excluded Item Id check box, and enter the Item Id.

You can apply the following benefit adjustments to a shopping cart:

  • Get Cart Any Item Subtotal [specific] Amount Off: A discount of a defined monetary amount off of any item in the customer’s shopping cart.

  • Get Cart Any Item Subtotal [specific] Percent Off: A discount of a defined percentage off any item in the customer’s shopping cart.

  • Get Free Gift: A free gift with purchase. The free gift benefit can provide one or more in-stock sellable items as a free gift. Product bundles are not supported. The cart total does not change with the addition of a free gift.

  • Get Cart Item in Category [specific] Amount Off: A discount of a defined monetary amount off any item from the specified category in the customer's shopping cart. The discount applies only to items directly beneath the parent category and applies even when the item exists in multiple categories. When there are multiple items from the specified category in the cart, the discount is applied to each item.

    Note

    If you define the same promotion benefit for two categories, the promotion is applied only to products that belong to both categories.

  • Get Cart Item in Category [specific] Percent Off: A discount of a defined percentage off any item from the specified category in the customer's shopping cart. The discount applies only to items directly beneath the parent category and applies even when the item exists in multiple categories. When there are multiple items from the specified category in the cart, the discount is applied to each item.

    Note

    If you define the same promotion benefit for two categories, the promotion is applied only to products that belong to both categories.

  • Get Cart Item Subtotal [specific] Amount Off: A discount of a defined monetary amount off a defined item in the customer’s shopping cart. The benefit applies even when the sellable item exists in multiple categories.
