I am trying to make a block which shows two products in it with a rule that if a customer bought these two products together the total amount will be reduce by some extent.

e.g. if product A is of $100 and B is of $75, then both will be buy together for $150.

Can anyone has an idea how to apply these kind of promotion rules in magento. I really need to do this as the client need this kind of functionality on its product view page.

enter image description here

I want something like this.

    Did you think about using group products or bundles? – Fabian Blechschmidt Jan 21 '14 at 7:22
  • Actually i am using configurable products – Waseem Jan 21 '14 at 7:26
  • You mean the products you want to sell together are already configurable products? – user487772 Jan 21 '14 at 8:20
  • No no I am not selling the configurable products. I am selling the simple products inside the configurable one. – Waseem Jan 21 '14 at 9:17
  • Selling two products is in magento achievable through bundle or group products, did you have a look on them? – Fabian Blechschmidt Jan 21 '14 at 9:28

To add multiple products to the cart from the same request you need to use the related_product url parameter. Simply add the extra products to the end of your add to cart url separated by a coman

/product/159/related_product/162,161,160

If you are calling the getUrl function to build your url you can do this as follows:

Mage::app()->getStore()->getUrl('checkout/cart/add/', array('product'=> 12, 'related_product' => implode(',', array(123,456))));

This cannot be done by configurable products. You will need to find another alternate on this. Because when we add any configurable product the associated products are in "Not visible Individually" Mode.

You can use the following url as an answer, it can be an alternate to your situation.

You can view following url::

Create a Shopping Cart Rule - To offer 5% discount for two products or more

If it is for products from specific category, the this can be used.

    all of my products are from the same category, and I am unable to this kind of functionality to show on the product page with the price rules. I dont know what to do. Now I am trying a new approach by creating a custom module for this but I am a newbie in magento so cant say how far I can go with the module creation. If you have anything, please let me know. – Waseem Jan 21 '14 at 11:59

Colleague of mine remembered the extension that can do this: WizKunde Configurable Bundle.

  • Thanks for the reply. I have already know about the extensions which can do this, but I didn't find any extension free so cant use them. If you come up with another ideas please let me know. I am trying really hard for this, but still no luck. – Waseem Jan 21 '14 at 12:02
  • I'm quite sure that developing this yourself will be more then the 199USD for this extension. The extension is fully open source, so no Ioncube and support is prompt and professional. It shouldn't be too hard to convince your client of this :). – Melvyn Jan 21 '14 at 13:05
  • well thanks for your suggestion even if I convince my client and he is ready to buy the extension its good, But how about if I want to do this for increasing my experience and knowledge. Atleast I should give a try for myself. – Waseem Jan 21 '14 at 13:14
