In AbanteCart, Product Specials are used to discount the product price. This special price applies no matter how many units of the product the customer purchases. Product Discounts, however, are volume promotions where variable discounts can be applied to a product based on the quantity added to the shopping cart. In this article, we’ll show you how to add product discounts in AbanteCart.
To create a promotional discount, first, navigate to Catalog > Products in the administration dashboard.
Navigate to the product you wish to promote and select the Edit button, then select Promotions.
At the bottom of the Promotions page, continue by clicking the + Add Discount button.
The Insert Discount panel opens.
Complete the form to create your product discount as follows:
- Customer Group: You can target your discount at a particular group of customers (e.g. newsletter subscribers, wholesalers or another group you create) or leave it as default to make all customers eligible. Note: Discounts for a customer group will only be displayed if the customer belonging to an eligible group is logged in.
- Quantity: Enter the product quantity required to trigger the promotion.
- Price: Enter the discounted product price.
- Date Start/End: Enter the start and end dates for your promotion (YYYY-MM-DD format). Pricing will be changed automatically in your storefront based on the dates you select. To run your promotion indefinitely, leave these fields blank.
When you’re ready to proceed, click Save.
Note: Multiple discounts can be stacked so that you can set multiple price triggers for additional quantities.
Use the View button under the product image to ensure your quantity pricing is visible. Remember, if you target your special to a group, you will have to be logged in as a member of the group to trigger the discount.
