BVC 5 - Offers

An “offer” is similar to a sale with more granular control of when a discount may be applied, such as a quantity ordered or a price level minimum, as well as control of the sale by use of a "promotional code" to apply a discount to a purchase. Offers can be used as rewards for frequent shoppers, marketing efforts, or focused merchant sale efforts.

The initial screen displays any offers that have been created. Use the Up/Down arrows to set the priority in which the discount is applied. The higher priority discounts will be applied before the lower priority discounts.

Let’s discuss each column:

Status – Discount statuses include Pending, Enabled, Disabled or Expired.

Name – Descriptive name given to a discount for the store admin’s reference.

Type – Discount types include Buy One Get One, Products, Order Total and Shipping.

Start/End Date – Starting and end dates for the promotion.

To create a new offer, select the discount type from the drop down list and click the “new” button.

Let’s look at the common properties between all offer and then we’ll look more closely at each specific offer type.

Let’s discuss the different offers in more detail.

Buy One Get One Buy One Get One discounts enable the customer to purchase a defined amount of products to receive a defined product(s) for free or at a discounted price.

The Buy One Get One free discount has two sections that set the criteria for the discount.

The first section is the “Products which have to be purchased”. The second section is the “Products which will be discounted”.

Products added to the “Product which have to be purchased” section will need to be added to the cart before the discount will take affect. The discount will then apply to the products added in the “Products which will be discounted” section.

Notice you can change the “Discount items by” field. Therefore you could set the discount amount to “100%” (free) or “50%” (half off). There is an endless amount of possibilities that could be implemented.

The last unique setting for this discount is the “Add items to cart automatically”. If this setting is turned on, when the products in the “Products which have to be purchased” are added to the cart, items in the “Products which will be discounted” section will automatically be added to the cart at the discounted price.

Order Total

The Order Total discount does not have any unique settings that differ from other discounts. Use the “If quantity ordered is >= # and the order total is >= #” to set the discount.

Product Discount

Product discounts are exactly the same as others however you can select what products you’d like the discount to apply to.

Shipping Discount

The shipping discount allows you to discount a shipping method or all shipping methods for an order. Select the “shipping method” in which you’d like the discount applied to or use the “All” option.

This discount could be used for a “free shipping” or “discounted shipping” promotion.

Free Shipping

This offer allows you to set free shipping for a specific product or group of products.
