Repeat: enable this option to repeat the rule. For example, if you offer a 50% discount when purchasing a second product, when the user purchases four products, the rule is applied twice and the user gets a 50% discount on two of the four purchased products.

How to check the quantity

Set offer based on items per line

  • Item quantity in cart line, regardless if there are variable products or not in cart. If your rule is set to offer a 50% discount from the 10th item, it will check the quantity of every line in the cart.
    In the following screenshot in fact you see a 30% discount for those lines with more than 10 items, but full price for those with fewer items.
  • Single product quantity in cart – variations NOT counted: this option allows you to check product quantity for variable products and count all its variations as one product.
    For example, if you offer a 50% off 10 or more items and the user adds 4 times size M and 7 times size L of the same product, the total quantity for this product would be 11, so the discount applies.
  • Single product quantity in cart – variations counted: this option allows you to check product quantity for variable products and count each variation as a separate product.
    For example, if you offer a 50% off 10 or more items and the user adds 4 times size M and 7 times size L of the same product, the quantity of each variation does not reach 10, so no discount applies.
  • Total number of products in cart.
    For example, if you offer a 50% off 10 or more items and the user adds 4 of product A, 3 of product B and 8 of product C, the total quantity in cart is 15, so the discount applies.

Products affected by the discount

Apply discount to a different product or category: enable if you want to apply a discount for other products rather than for the products selected for this quantity rule. For example: if a customer purchases 100 business cards (product A), they can get a 10% discount on flyers. (product B)

Discount to different category

If you enable this option, then, if the rule conditions (what you’ve set up before) is met, then, the discount will apply to what you choose here:

  • All products (included those that you’ve selected above as a condition)
  • Specific products
  • Specific product categories
  • Specific product tags

You can further restrict the products on which the discount applies by using the Exclude products option.

If you want that the discount applies to the same products that you choose above, then, leave this option disabled.
