More advanced promotion price calculations such as "Buy 2 get the 3rd one free"...
Actually we can achieve it ("Buy 2 get the 3rd one free") the following way:
- Let's say we have Product1, Product2, Product3.
- Create a new discount. Ensure that 'Discount type' type is set to 'Assigned to products'. Check 'Use percentage' and set 'Discount percentage' to '100%'. Then go 'requirements' tab and create 'Customer has all of these product variants in the cart' requirement
with IDs of Product1 and Product2.
- Apply this discount to Product3 (on the product variant details page, discounts tab)
Note: The only issue here is that you have to manually add Product3 to the cart. So we need to find a way to notify a customer about this free product
This is not a very generic solution. It only works for: if you buy one product of each of N products you get Product x for free. It will not work in many real cases such as:
- Buy 2 (it only works if you buy one) of Product 1 and the 3rd (product 1) is free. Same if you buy 4 of product 1 you get a second for free
- Buy 2 (or 3 or 4 ...) of any of Product 1, Product 2 ... and you get Product x for free
[AM] It's already can be done using 'Customer has all of these product variants in the cart' and 'Customer has one of these product variants in the cart' discount requirement rules. But the only issue now is that the discount will be applied to any quantity
of a discounted product.
Also allow customer to choose free gift on checkout. For example, a person who spends so much gets to choose a free gift on checkout.
