I'm running 1.14 and you'd think by now they would have developed something for this percentage off the whole cart.

There is "fixed amount discount for whole cart".

Am i missing something or is there really no option for "percent of whole cart price discount".

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

You can give a Percent of product price discount which in your case would be set up for any item in cart.

Set the rule like this: Discount amount is percentage value - in this example it's 10%.

In my example there are conditions which are empty in this moment you don't have to have any. Note that I'm blocking any other coupons / promotions from applying by setting field Stop Further Rules Processing to Yes.

  • It is a lot different than apply a discount to the total in the cart. It is very weird that Magento don't have this option...

I struggled over this as well, and I found a solution (though not very intuitive). Simply put a very high number (e.g., 9999) in Maximum Qty Discount is Applied To field. Doing this will cause the single-item rule to apply to each item in the cart, until it reaches the max (9999). This will work even if you set Stop Further Rules Processing to yes.

This is the best workaround I can think of. It's utterly baffling that a powerful eCommerce solution like Magento has left out such a glaringly obvious coupon scenario that just about every store requires.

  • This doesn't seem to work for me. I have to switch off "Stop further rules processing" to get the discount to apply to the whole cart, no matter what I put in the "Maximum Qty Discount is Applied To" box. Nov 12, 2015 at 11:14
