The idea behind the plugin is to have a tool that allows the shop admin to easily create promotions to apply discount percentage to the cheapest item on cart. A Promotion will be applied according the Cart total or if
Specific products are currently present on cart.
Once detected one of these conditions, the plugin will detect the cheapest item on cart (or the cheapest among a preselected set of products choosed by the admin) and will apply a discount (displayed as cart fee). Discount can be applied also according
to the item quantity.
NOTE: Only one promotion can be applied to the cheapest item. Promotions will be applied only if at least 1 item is in cart with quantity greater than 1.
HOW TO CONFIGURE
A promotion can be easily configured in just two steps:
Step one: Application strategy
There are two application strategies that the you can select in order to apply a promotion. These two strategies relies on the Cart total or the if Specific products are currently in cart.
Selecting the Cart total strategy the plugin will apply the pormotion to the cheapest item currently in cart. You can also optionally set a min and max cart total range, doing so the promotion will not be applied if the cart total is not incuded in the specified range.
Selecting the Specific products strategy, you can select a set of products and/or categories. If the cart will contain at least one of the selected items, the promotion will be applied. You can optionally specify a custom quantity range using the Min/Max values.
Optionally can be added multiple Products/categories block. Block are related in with AND logic. This means, for example if you create a block containing:
Products: Product 1
Quantity Min: 2
and a second block containing
Products: Product 2
Quantity Min: 3
Quantity Max: 6
It means that the promotion to be applied required that in the cart must be present Product 1 (with a minimum quantity of 2) AND Product 2 (with a quantity included between 3 and 6)
Step two: Cheapest item selection strategy
Next step is to choose to which item apply the promotion. It can be the Cheapest item on cart or the Cheapest among the selected products.
Selecting the first option the plugin will automatically detect the cheapest item currently in cart and will apply a discount accoring the setted Cheapest product discount percentage value. If in cart there are multiple quantity of that
item, you can chose to how many items apply the discount value. Optionally can be also setted a Cart total: min/max value. It means that the promotion will be applied only if the cart total included in that value range
The Cheapest amont the selecte products option allows you to apply the promotion only to the cheapest item among the select products/categories. You can add multiple products “block”, each of which can have its own Max quantity value. The max quantity value
is the max number of item to which will be applied the discount.
Your shop is selling Product 1 for 4$ and Product 2 for 2$
Promotion is configured to be applied to Product 1 with Max quantity 2 and Product 2 with Max quantity 4 with a discount of 100%
The user on checkout has in cart: Product 5, Product 7, Product 1 and Product 2 with quantity 10
The plugin detects Product 2 as the cheapest, and applies a discount of 4$
Discount is 4$ because item price is 2$, the discount is of 100% (so it is 2$) and the max applicable item quantity is 2.
Apply promotion to every N items/amount spent
Want to apply a promotion/giveaway the X cheapest items every N amount spent/produts added to cart? You can! Just select the amount to spent (or the specific items and their quantity that the customer as to buy) and the plugin will do the rest!
Promotion can be applied to specific user roles. To do that the shop admin has just to select at least one role on the special role restriction section during the promotion configuration.
The plugin is compatible with WPML. Promotion label (used on cart to identify the applied promotion) can be translated using the String translator menu (woocommerce-cheapest-item domain).
