As you know, Magento 2 provides many powerful marketing features, one of them is using price rules to trigger discounts based on a variety of conditions. Customers always love discount, and Magento 2 will help you make them happy and boost your sales by two type of price rules: Catalog Price Rules and Cart Price Rules.
- Catalog Price Rules can be used to selectively offer products at a discounted price, based on a set of conditions. Catalog price rules do not use coupon codes, because they are triggered before a product is placed into the shopping cart.
- 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 create catalog price rule in Magento 2
Follow these steps to create catalog price rules in Magento 2:
STEP 1: Add a New Rule
Firstly, login to your store’s admin dashboard and navigate to Marketing>Promotions>Catalog Price Rule.
In the upper-right corner, tap Add New Rule. The options in the panel on the left include Rule Information, Conditions, and Actions.
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.
- 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.
STEP 2: Define the Conditions
Most of the available conditions are based upon existing attribute values. To apply the rule to all products, leave the conditions blank.
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, the condition is “Category.” Click the is link, and choose the comparison operator that describes the condition to be met. In this example, the options are “IS” or “IS NOT.” Then, click the … “more” link, and choose the category upon which the condition is based.
To add another line to the statement, tap the Add button, and choose one of the following: Conditions Combination & Product Attribute. Then, repeat the process until the condition is complete. If at any time you want to delete part of the statement, tap the Delete button at the end of the line.
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. Under Pricing Structure Rules, set Apply to one of the following:
- Apply as percentage of original: Discounts item by subtracting a percentage from the original price. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount for an updated price that is 10% less than the original price.
- Apply as fixed amount: Discounts item by subtracting a fixed amount from original price. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount for an updated price that is $10 less than the original price.
- Adjust final price to this percentage: Discounts item by defining the final price based on percentage. For example: Enter 10 in Discount Amount for an updated price that is 10% of the original price.
- Adjust final price to discount value Sets the price to a fixed amount.
b. Enter the Discount Amount.
- To apply the discount amount to associated products, set Subproduct Discounts to “Yes.” Select the pricing structure, and enter the Discount Amount.
- To stop processing other rules after this rule is applied, set Discard Subsequent Rules to “Yes.” This safeguard prevents customers from receiving multiple discounts for the same product.
c. Tap Save and Continue Edit.
STEP 4: Apply the Rule
To apply a new rule immediately, from the Catalog Price Rules grid, tap Apply 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.
Besides, you can apply Price Rule with Multiple SKUs
In the panel on the left, choose Conditions. Then, set up the condition like this:
Tap the Chooser button to display the list of available products. In the list, select the checkbox of each product that you want to include. Then, tap Select to add the SKUs to the condition.
