Buy One, Get One Free

Table of Content

You can offer customers every second, third, fourth or fifth product for free if it is participating in the “Buy One, Get One Free” type of promotion.

Discounts under this promotion are combined with the standard discount under the “Discount” type of promotion. Learn more about products participating in several promotions.

How the promotion works #

  1. The customer adds to cart several products participating in the promotion. The number of products depends on whether you give the second, third, fourth or fifth product for free.
  2. We choose the product with the minimum cost.
  3. The customer receives a discount equal to its cost.
  4. This discount is distributed to all products in proportion to their cost.

For example, the customer adds to cart some products participating in the “Second product for free” campaign for a total of 1100 rubles:

  • a teapot at a cost of 1000 rubles—0.9 of the total order;

  • a cup at a cost of 100 rubles—0.1 of the total order.
