Promotions

Promotions are a means of offering discounts on an order based on various criteria. A Promotion consists of conditions and actions.

  • conditions are the rules which determine whether the Promotion should be applied to the order.
  • actions specify exactly how this Promotion should modify the order.

Promotion Conditions

A condition defines the criteria that must be met for the Promotion to be activated. Vendure comes with some simple conditions provided which enable things like:

  • If the order total is at least $X
  • Buy at least X of a certain product
  • But at least X of any product with the specified [FacetValues]({{< relref "/user-guide/catalog/facets" >}})
  • If the customer is a member of the specified [Customer Group]({{< relref "/user-guide/customers" >}}#customer-groups)

Vendure allows completely custom conditions to be defined by your developers, implementing the specific logic needed by your business.

Coupon codes

A coupon code can be any text which will activate a Promotion. A coupon code can be used in conjunction with conditions if desired.

{{< alert "primary" >}} Note: Promotions must have either a coupon code or at least 1 condition defined. {{< /alert >}}

Promotion Actions

If all the defined conditions pass (or if the specified coupon code is used), then the actions are performed on the order. Vendure comes with some commonly-used actions which allow promotions like:

  • Discount the whole order by a fixed amount
  • Discount the whole order by a percentage
  • Discount selected products by a percentage
  • Free shipping

Coupon code per-customer limit

If a per-customer limit is specified, then the specified coupon code may only be used that many times by a single Customer. For guest checkouts, the "same customer" status is determined by the email address used when checking out.
