The Category discount allows you to create a discount on one or more categories just in one rule. You can create multiple rules so they can be enabled one by one, or one rule with all category discounts so they can be enabled with one click.
To create a new rule, go to YITH > Dynamic Pricing > “Dynamic Rules dynamic rules page and click on the “+ Add rule” button.
Let’s see how to configure it.
Active rule: Enable or disable the rule by using the toggle.
Priority: set the priority to assign to this rule. Priority is important to overwrite rules (1 is the highest priority).
You can also arrange the priority by dragging and dropping the rules from the rules list:
Rule type: it is set to your previous choice by default, but you can choose to change it here if you want to create a different rule type.
Set up products and conditions
Set a category discount: choose the type of discount you want to apply to one or more categories.
You can add multiple rules and apply multiple discounts on different categories. This is handy if you want to enable the discounts all at once. Yet, should you need to activate them one by one, just create separate rules for each category.
Exclude products from this rule: enable if you want to exclude specific products from this rule and pick
- Specific products
- Specific product tags
Then choose whether to show or not the discount in loop, so on the Shop page and category and tag pages by enabling the option immediately below:
Restrictions by user and use role
Apply discount to: choose to apply the rule to all users or specific user roles. In the latter case, you can further exclude specific users from this rule.
Schedule the rule
Schedule rule: choose whether to schedule the rule or activate/deactivate it manually
- Enable the rule now and end it manually
- Schedule a start and end time
Combine with other rules?
Disable rule ‘on-sale products’: enable this option if you want that the discount does not apply to ‘on-sale products’.
Disable other rules with lower priority: enable if you want to disable other rules with lower priority applied to the same products.
Disable when a coupon has been applied: enable if you want to disable this rule if the user has applied a coupon code.
Show custom messages
Finally, you can set up some additional notes on the products where the rule applies:
Add a custom message in products where the discount is applied: enter a custom text to show on the product pages when the discount applies.
Use the placeholder %required_items% to show products, categories, or tags that users must add to the cart to apply the discount rule to the product for which it has been created.
Please, note, this second box only appears if the Apply discount to a different product or category has been enabled.
