In AbanteCart, Product Specials are used to discount the product price. This special price applies no matter how many units of the product the customer purchases. Product Discounts, however, are volume promotions where variable discounts can be applied to a product based on the quantity added to the shopping cart.
To create a promotional discount, first navigate to Catalog > Products in the administration dashboard.
Navigate to the product you wish to promote and select the Edit button. In the dropdown menu that appears, select Promotions.
At the bottom of the Promotions page, continue by clicking the + Add Discount button.
The Insert Discount panel opens.
Complete the form to create your product discount as follows:
- Customer Group: You can target your discount at a particular group of customers (e.g. newsletter subscribers, wholesalers or another group that you create) or leave as default to make all customers eligible. Note that discounts for a customer group will only be displayed if the customer belonging to an eligible group is logged in.
- Quantity: Enter the product quantity required to trigger the promotion.
- Price: Enter the discounted product price.
- Date Start/End: Enter the start and end dates for your promotion (YYYY-MM-DD format). Pricing will be changed automatically in your storefront based on the dates you select. To run your promotion indefinitely, leave these fields blank.
When you’re ready to proceed, click Save.
Note that multiple discounts can be stacked, so you can set multiple price triggers for additional quantities.
Use the View button under the product image to ensure your quantity pricing is visible. Remember, if you target your special to a group, you will have to be logged in as a member of the group to trigger the discount.
