Types of automatic discounts in Checkout X

Buy X get Y discount

The customer adds to the cart a product, then if he adds another specific product to the cart, he will take advantage of a discount on the second item. You could choose the discounted value to be “Free” or a “percentage discount”. Also, you could set a maximum number of uses per order.

Example: Buy 2 pairs of jeans and get 1 free t-shirt.

Percentage discount

A discount with a percentage value will be automatically applied to the entire order or only to a specific product/collection on checkout.

Example: Set a “20% discount on all t-shirts today”, then the discount will be applied on all t-shirts automatically.

Fixed Amount discount

A discount with a fixed amount will be automatically applied to the entire order or only to a specific product/collection on checkout.

Example: Set a 10€ discount to a t-shirt, then the discount will automatically change the price of the t-shirt on the checkout page.

Automatic Free Shipping discount

A discount that will be applied to the shipping costs field on the checkout page. This way you could set up a minimum amount/quantity reached in the cart and based on these criteria to make the discount apply automatically.

Example: Provide free shipping on checkout for orders over 50 bucks.
