Catalog Price Rules: "Stop Further Rules Processing" (not cart rules) - how does this work?
So, How does "Stop Further Rules Processing" work?
- does this work in product level? set a flag: stop further rules processing only for the "affected" products by the current rule? (so: all rules, but products are affected only once by the first rule touching them)
- Does it mean: stop processing of any other rule. So no rules with lower prior and no other rules with the same prior (so: only the 1 rule)
- Does this mean: stop processing of all other rules with a lower prior - but do finish all rules with the same prior? (so: only 1 rule + the rules with the same prior)
2 rules 1 with PRIO 10 other with PRIO 2. Rule 1 has stopped further processing: what does this do?
10 rules all with PRIO 10 and 15 other with PRIO 2. The first rule of 10 rules with PRIO 10 has stopped further processing: what does this do?
Reference is taken from Magento
If you want to stop the processing of other rules after this rule has been applied, set Stop Further Rules Processing to “Yes.” This safeguard prevents customers from receiving multiple discounts for the same product.
I am thrown off by the part "for the same product" which hints at some kind of rule stopping on the product level: read stop further rules processing is only applicable to the 1st product that it matches And does not match a second rule) however a product not affected by the first rule, may be affected by the 2nd rule
