Basically I have 2 shopping cart rules and I only want one to be applied at any one time.
My first shopping cart rule is a discount code that gives you 10% discount on products in your cart that are in a certain category. And my second is a little more complex as it gives you 100% discount on a product when a differnet product is added to your cart. For example, if you have a t-shirt and a hat in your cart, then you get the hat for free.
So at the moment when I have the t-shirt and hat in the cart at the same time, I get a discount of £6.00 (which is the price of the hat). Then when I enter the coupon code, I get a further 10% off. So if my t-shirt was £10 and the hat was £6, The total to be paid would be £9.
I need it so that only one of these rules can be applied at any one time, I don't mind how it works, just as long as customers cannot take advantage of this issue.
I have heard that this is something to do with the priorities of the rules, but I have spent a few hours playing around with different settings but cannot get this to work.
I've attached some screenshots of my rule settings, hopefully they will give you a better idea of what's going on.
