Tiered Discount Coupon
CoreCommerce has created a new type of promotional coupon you can offer to your customers, providing them an incentive to buy larger ticket items and receive a discount on accessories purchased.
The feature allows you to give customers a percentage discount on products, given specific items are in their cart. You can specify the quantity of items required for your customer to receive a discount.
The total discount has the option to be capped, as an example, not surpassing 20%.
You can configure the new coupon type to auto apply during checkout (i.e. the customer does not have to enter a code to get the discount). If the customer’s cart has the proper requirements, then the “promotion” or “auto coupon” will apply itself.
For example, you can setup this couple to give “up to 20% on all Accessories” if you buy anywhere from 1-4 large ticket items.
To use this coupon, navigate to Marketing (left-hand menu) > View Coupons
When you add a new Coupon (clicking on + icon), select the option “Buy X Product, Get Y Product Discount”.
When you get to the coupon configuration section, enter the quantities you want in the two quantity fields:
Next, begin choosing the specific products you want to “Trigger” the promotion. These are the items that will allow for the discount to happen, not the items that get the discount.
Last, you would choose the category/categories that GET the discount if it is applicable. In this case, you are choosing a category of items, not specific products. For example, if you have a category called “Accessories”, you can choose it, and the discount would affect ANY product in your cart that happens to be in the “Accessories” category:
Next, select the % discount you want to be given on accessories, multiplied by the quantity of primary products that are in the cart. Example: If you set the range to “Buy 1-4” of the primary high ticket items, and a consumer selects any combination of those products, they will receive the tiered discount. So if my discount is 5% per accessory product, buy 2 of A and 1 of B, the total quantity in the cart is 3. So the discount on the accessories is 3 * 5% or 15% off all the accessories in the cart.
If a customer updates their cart, the total will adjust automatically to change the discount, if applicable
So in the end, you select the products that GIVE the discount, and what the tiered range is (i.e. 1-4). Then you select the discount percentage multiplier (i.e. 5%) and finally you give the system the list of categories (all the products in those categories) that GET the discount.
Finally, for this specific coupon type only, you can choose to have this coupon AUTO Applied to the customer’s cart. All this means is that the customer can get this discount without having to enter a coupon code.
Each time your cart is modified in any way, CoreCommerce will check to see if your cart qualifies for any coupon that uses this type, and is set to auto apply. If the cart qualifies, the discount will be auto calculated and applied to the cart inside the “Discount” line item and the prices of the items that GET the discount will be auto adjusted.
