Can someone please tell me why this price rule only works if the quantity 2 of the same SKU? I want the rule to work when any 2 SKU's are added to cart with the sample attribute.
If you look at your
Actions tab you'll notice that your conditions are:
If ALL of these conditions are TRUE:
Quantity in cart is 2
Which is why it is only applied if there are a quantity of 2 of the same product. There's a great guide available on http://www.magentocommerce.com over here:
Apply: Percent of product price discount Discount Amount: 50 Maximum Qty Discount is Applied To: 0 Discount Qty Step (Buy X) 2 Apply to Shipping Amount: No Free Shipping: No Stop Further Rules Processing: No If ALL of these conditions are TRUE: SKU is YOUR_SKU
Magento by default does not support multiple SKUs for buy X get Y free. I suggest that you search from https://marketplace.magento.com/ for
Special Promotions or use the Special Promotions Pro from Amasty. Amasty's Special promotions pro really works for our needs and especially on this kind of scenario.
This is what you want to setup. I've tested this and it works perfectly.
For the conditions -
And for the actions -
That works well for buy 1 get 1 free but how about for buy 2 get 1 free. I have amended the total quantity to 3 and the discount amount to 33.3333 but how do I make it step up in increments. Currently that setup gives a 33.3333% discount on 4 and 5 items for example whereas I only want it to discount in multiples of 3. Therefore 4 and 5 items should still have the same discount amount as was given for 3. 6 would have double the discount amount as the customer would have purchased the necessary additional 2 to get another 1 free.
I have tried fiddling with the required quantity and discount step but they seem to require the product to all be the same rather than just from the same category...
Hope that makes sense?
Here is the Magento official documentation on Buy X Get Y http://docs.magento.com/m1/ce/user_guide/marketing/price-rule-shopping-cart-buy-x-get-y-free.html
- New Shopping Cart Price Rule
- Conditions if item has sku and quantity >= 2
- Action is Buy X Get Y Discount Amt = 1 Discount Qty = 1 Apply Rule to cart items matching SKU
- Create Label and Save
JamesAllwood answer and 7ochem will apply 50% off if you buy an odd number of products, which is not Buy One Get One Free. Also note if doing it by SKU, applying the rule to cart items matching the SKU is important. Otherwise it will apply BOGO to every item in your cart.
