How to do that. My site is bioesquebeauty.com. I want to make a promo. Where you buy 2 foot peels (32 kits -wholesale) you get a free foot scrub
Question regarding functionality: Is it possible to set up a promotion where a specific combination of lets say 3 different items in the cart gives a specific and different discount on each product? Example: 16 + 16 + 20 separately. When together in cart 14 + 14 + 16? If that is not possible, what is the closest option to it?
With best wishes,
Jaak from Estonia
Not really the same with your requirement, the plugin can offer the discount on the bonus product only, the main products are still the same price, but in your case you can put all discount on the third product, so it’s 16 + 16 + 12 which will result the same total (it depends on your promotion if it’s allowed).
Hi, Im looking for a plugin for “Buy 3, Get cheapest for free”
Meaning that you can buy 3 different products, and you get the cheapest for free? I really need this quickly, as I had a plugin that didnt work, and a newsletter was already sent out to customers
Is it possible to do that with this plugin? “Buy 3 get cheapest for free” with a coupon? Thanks for a quick reply. best regards,
Sorry, but your requirement is a bit different with the plugin does.
A bogo should always free item equal or lesser value. Your’s does not do that. Is there an updated version that does this?
You can define the free product as offered product with price=0 or any discount you want to set. The plugin won’t choose it automatically, you need to specify the offered products.
Hi xdimension. From what I can read in the comments and by trying out the demos, neither SellMore nor Promotion Manager does exactly what I need. I need to set a discount if you buy 5 mix’n’match products from a pool of products (e.g. from a category). Are you aware of any way I can do this (your plugins or anything else)? Is it something that you might put in your plugin(s) any time soon? Are you thinking about merging the two plugins to one – if you did that and then added the mix’n’match bulk discount feature, you’d have a killer plugin! They’re already pretty awesome, I just think they should be one plugin. Also, you have a nice interface, I like the “add products/categories” input fields. I you added this last feature (and maybe a merge of the two) you would have another buyer (me). Regards, SvendK
Edit: I just had an idea, that if I set a category as criteria and then I could just add an offer for each of the products in the pool of products, that I’d give free, then we’re good to go, but no. I need a quantity in the criteria section. And, it would also be a bit tough to manage the discounts this way.
Add a minimum quantity of the products selected in the criteria section, before the offers are eligible, and then add a categories-field (just like the product + product categories pair in Criteria section) from where the user can select from. I know that this last part makes it hard to show it in the up-sell boxes on the frontend, but then maybe do a random pick or show the category or a link to a list of the seleted products/categories (I don’t know if that is possible).
Edit2 (I really want your plugin to fit my needs :D):
Have I misunderstood it – Is it that the criteria sections sets which products that is in the offers on the Offers section? And then the offers quantity field sets how many products has to be in the basket, before the free product is eligible? Or am I totally misunderstanding it?
The plugin works as you described in “Edit2”, so a buyer can purchase some quantity of a product (or based on total quantity of some products) that you can define in the Criteria, if the purchase satisfies the criteria then the buyer can get the product(s) that are specified in the Offers (either it’s free or discounted, you can set there).
Hello and thanks for the reply. I’m sorry for the wall of text
I bought SellMore yesterday and its great. I experimented with it to set it up, and it works, but I have two problems.
I have a category of products, which each cost 180, but if you buy 5 (mix’n’match) the fifth should be on discount. So product a-b-c for a combined quantity of 4 gives you an extra a/b/c product with a discount.
If I set a discount of 1,- (just for testing) and set Repeat=true for the offer, and then add the same product one-by-one, then the fifth gives 1 in discount. All good. If I then raise the quantity again, then the second discount kicks in at a total quantity of 10. All good. It works.
But if I have products A and B from the criteria section in the cart, and set product A’s quantity to 5 (which gives a discount) and then add product B, then the second discount kicks in at a quantity of 4, for a total of 9 combined.
Is it a bug or just bad settings on my part? I know that price discount matrixes can be a bitch from my daytime job…
My client wants to sell the products from the category, which all cost 180 each, for a bulk discount of 5 for 700 (a discount of 200). But the product only cost 180 which means the extra product should sell for -20 but the cart doesn’t represent this. Every 5th product (with only product A in the cart) is free (total doesn’t increase), which gives a cart with qty=5 a total of 720, not 700. How can I give 200 in discount on a product bundle of 5, when one product cost 180?
Thank you for your support
Problem 1: If you set the quantity to 4 then it means every purchase of 4 items (any combination of a-b-c) the buyer is eligible for 1 discount. Since the buyer has purchased 9 items (more than 2×4 items), he is eligible for 2 discount. The plugin works that way, it won’t differentiate the offered product from the first group (the first 4 items) and the second one, thus the total discount (=2 in your case) is applied to the offered product (the 9th item).
Problem 2: In this case you require bulk discount rule which somewhat different than the plugin functionality. The plugin works for offering another product (with discount), not bulk discount which you can slice the amount of the total price; the maximum discount you can apply is equal to the price of the offered product. Thus, in your case the 5th product is free, then the total in the cart is 4×180 = 720.
Problem 1: But do you not think that this is a bug? And well, he hasn’t purchased it yet, just put it in the basket, but I know what you mean. I would say that when the rule is “Buy 4 get 1 free”, then the free one shouln’t count for the second free item?
Problem 2: Yeah okay… I’m a programmer myself (but not in php), and I can imagine that the structure of the plugin might not easily allow for this kind of change, but it’s still a change that I think would improve your product.
Are the product still open for new features and improvements, or do you not have time for this now? I do not want to offend you in any way, but in the comments, when people ask for features, your reply is only “that is not the functionality of this plugin” instead of “that is a nice idea, I will try and put it in the plugin at some time”. Any comments on this?
Also, on the Special Offers list of offers, I’d like a “Delete” / “Move to trash” Bulk edit option
Best regards, Svend
Problem 1: let’s start from the setup so we’re on the same page:
Criteria: Product A & B; Offer method: Combined (means total qty of A & B )
Offers: Qty = 4 (this is qty of products in the criteria above)
Offered products: Product C (just to make it clearer to explain)
Adjustment method: Discount by amount 1,-
Then the buyer purchases (= added to cart) 5 A and 4 B, then he can buy C at 2,- discount (C’s price – 2,- ), comes from 4 product A/B => 1,- discount and another 4 product A/B => 1,- discount.
Problem 2: Yeah, there are many discount schemes, there is a plugin that tries to be flexible to many rules and then people ask if it can display the discounted products which is impossible (if someone buys 5 product A then he got 1 discount, but if combined with 5 product B then another disc, but for x product C which cannot be combined with others then x disc and if the total cart is more than xxx then more disc and so on how to display the discount products?).
That’s why this plugin can’t do all those rules, however with this plugin you can offer other products (and display them) based on some “main” products.
Your plugin works best, if what triggers the offer (the criteria) is not the same products that the offer includes. I.e. A+B gives C-product. In our case where we’d like to offer product A or B (or an absolut discount amount), if you buy 2 A’s and 2 B’s, is not properly supported by the plugin.
It seems also, that if you put a category of products in as criteria, but set Repeat = false, if you put several different products from the criteria category into the basket, it still gets me the extra product with a discount “repeating”, because it takes the criteria from the other products. I.e.: criteria: product category with products A, B, C and D. Make a single offer with qty of 4. If I then put 4 A’s, 4 B’s and 4 C’s, then i’d get three offers (two repeats) even though the repeat option is off. I understand why this happens, but i’d still call it a bug, wouldn’t you?
I’m not sure of my refund rights, but as the plugin cannot be used in our situation, we really would like a refund, if that is possible?
I hope that you would consider working a bit more on an otherwise great plugin to work out the kinks mentioned in this thread – and maybe build this and Promotion Manager together into one product? They tie pretty good together, it seems. If you do, I might be a customer again.
I’d like to debate further, if you like, if you are open to inputs about the plugin :) I just wanted to make an official refund request before time runs out :)
Another thing, that, well is not in the scope of this plugin, but is another way of giving the discounts, is to put another “item” in the basket to show, that this cart content gives x discount. To show a line of discount, instead of just adjusting the prices. I know it is a major change for the plugin, that you might not want to make, but hey, it’s just input from a simple user
Hi xdimension. I don’t know if you had a change to see this, but I’d like a refund, as your otherwise nice plugin cannot do, what it’s bought for in this situation. According to the list of features, I’d think it’s covered in the envato refund policies, so I hope you will make a swift refund Otherwise, please get back go me so we can discuss. Thanks, SvendK
Tried for a while with the simplest form of discount, and the plugin failed to work. I can’t wait around to figure it out. The client wants to run a BOGO 50% OFF special today. I will purchase a different plugin. Please refund.
