What are Sale Rules?
As a seller, you might want to create a sales rule where you sell specific categories or certain products at a discounted amount for a period of time. These rules can be implemented during peak seasons such as Christmas or New Years, in order to make your products more competitive in the marketplace.
To set up a new rule simply navigate to Settings >> Product Settings and Rules.
From this page, you can select the "Sale Rule" tab.
Then click on the "Create new" button on the right.
First, you must choose a name for your rule.
Then you can follow the five easy steps to create a Sale Rule.
STEP 1: SELECT PRODUCTS OR CATEGORIES
In Step 1 you can select to apply your rule to either products or categories.
STEP 2: SELECT A PRODUCT/ CATEGORY
In Step 2 you can select which products or categories to apply your rule to, depending on your choice in Step 1. You also have an option to apply your rule to All products or All categories.
STEP 3: DISCOUNT TYPE AND VALUE
In Step 3 you can select the discount type (Amount or Percentage) as well as the value.
STEP 4: ACTIVATE RULE DEPENDING ON ORDER SIZE
In Step 4 you can choose whether to activate your sale rule depending on the order size. So if an order exceeds a certain amount OR a certain quantity, then the sale rule will be activated.
STEP 5: ADD AN EXPIRATION DATE (THIS STEP IS NOT REQUIRED)
In Step 5 you can add an expiration date for your sale rule.
Once you've saved your rules you can drag and drop them in order to prioritise them. Rules are executed from the bottom, so the top rules will override or take priority over those down in the order.
