After installing Magento 2, we have a simple store with many powerful marketing features, espectially Price Rules. In the last post, we have known about how to create Catalog Price Rules, so today, we will present to you one more kind of Price Rules and How to set up it – Shopping Cart Price Rules in Magento 2.
What is Shopping Cart Price Rules?
Shopping Cart Price Rules apply discounts to items in the shopping cart, based on a set of conditions. The discount can be applied automatically as soon as the conditions are met, or when the customer enters a valid coupon code. When applied, the discount appears in
the cart under the subtotal. A price rule can be used as needed for a season or promotion by changing its status and date range.
How to add Shopping Cart Price Rules for your site?
To add Shopping Cart Price Rules, we have to follow the 5-steps process below:
STEP 1: Add a New Rule
Firstly, login to your store’s admin dashboard and navigate to Marketing>Promotions>Cart Price Rules.
In the upper-right corner, tap Add New Rule. The options in the panel on the left include Rule Information, Conditions, Actions and Labels.
On the Rule Information Page, do the following:
- Complete the Rule Name and Description fields (These fields are for your internal reference only).
- Set Status to “Active.”
- Select the Websites where the rule is to be available.
- Select the Customer Groups to which this rule applies ( For the promotion to be available only to registered customers, do not select the “NOT LOGGED IN” option).
- Set From and To dates to define the range of dates when the rule will be in effect (If you leave the dates blank, the rule is enabled as soon as the price rule is saved.).
- Enter a number to establish the Priority of this rule in relation to other rules.
That seem nore more difference with Catalog Price Rules, right? But in this step, don’t forget to set Coupon to “Specific Coupon.” After that, do the following:
- Enter a numeric Coupon Code that the customer must enter to receive the discount.
- Set a limit on the number of times the coupon can be used ( with both Uses per Coupon and Uses per Customer).
STEP 2: Define the Conditions
This step is very important, because the conditions are described that must be met for an order to qualify for the promotion. The rule goes into action whenever the set of conditions is met.
The statement has two bold links, which when clicked, display the options for that part of the statement. If you save the condition without making additional selections, the rule applies to all products. If you want to apply the rule to all products, leave the condition unchanged. In the list under Product Attribute, choose the attribute that you want to use as the basis of the condition. For this example, we choose Product Attribute Combination, which says, “If an item is FOUND in the cart with ALL of the conditions TRUE”.
Click the ellipsis … link, which means “there is more,” and enter the amount that triggers thediscount. The amount appears in the statement to complete the condition.
STEP 3: Define the Actions
In the panel on the left, select Actions. In there, we will set how we want this price rules apply for products:
a. Set Apply to one of the following:
- Percent of product price discount: Discounts item by subtracting a percentage from the
original price. The discount applies to each qualifying item in the cart. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount for an updated price that is 10% less than the original price.
- Fixed amount discount: Discounts item by subtracting a fixed amount from original price. The discount applies to each qualifying item in the cart. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount for an updated price that is $10 less than the original price.
- Fixed amount discount for whole cart: Discounts the entire cart by subtracting a percentage from
the cart total. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount to subtract 10% from the cart total.
- Buy X get Y free: Defines a quantity that the customer must purchase to receive a quantity for free.
b. Fill all the block with match with your discount campaigns:
c. Tap Save Rules.
STEP 4: Complete the Labels
The label appears on the order below the subtotal to identify the discount. You can enter a default label for all store views, or enter a different label for each view. In the panel on the left, choose Labels, then do one of the following:
Under Default Label, enter the text for the Default Rule Label for All Store Views.
Under Store View Specific Labels, enter an appropriate label for each store view.
3. In the Store View Specific Labels section, enter the label text for each store view. For example, if each store view is in a different language, enter the label translation for each view.
STEP 5: Apply the Rule
To apply a new rule immediately, tap Save Rules.
When you create a new price rule, it might take an hour or so to become available. Make sure to allow enough time for it to get into the system. Then, test the rule to make sure that it works correctly. As new rules are added, Magento recalculates the prices and the priorities accordingly.
