Aggregate Discounts for "Buy One, Get One Free" Discounts
Aggregate discounts are generally used to reduce the price of one product when it is sold with one or more different products. For example, a customer could buy a dining room table at full price and receive a discount on dining room chairs.
Aggregate discounts can also be used where you buy a product and receive a discount on the same product. This is commonly called a Buy One, Get One Free discount.
To set up this sort of discount, combine them in one aggregate discount with a Buy quantity equal to the total number of products a customer must buy, and the discount set to give the appropriate result.
For example, if customers can buy one dining room chair and get one chair for free:
- Set the Buy quantity to two.
- Set the price Adjustment Type to % Discount and the Adjustment Amount to 50 to create a Receive rule that gives 50 percent off the List price for each product.
Similarly, if customers can buy three dining room chairs and get one chair for free:
- Set the Buy Quantity to four.
- Set the price Adjustment Type to % Discount and Adjustment Amount to 25 to create a receive rule that gives 25 percent off the List price for each product.
