How to create a cart rule in pricing rule management in Prestashop

Cart Rules

The “Card Rules” page provides access to Wcomm 1.4 from a voucher system and access to an enhanced tool. Wcomm’s seasonal users are not surprised by the added features, but need to change the new name: When this guide specifies vouchers, we’re actually talking about the rules of the cart – it will have to borrow.

Differences between a credit slip, a voucher and a cart rule

A credit slip is the first written source of a product that was revoked. Most of the time, the user can use a voucher.

A voucher is a discounted code or a discount code that does not have to be tied to a merchandise return or a refund, and it can take several forms rather than a simple credit slip:

  • A discount on an order (percentage).
  • A discount on an order (amount).
  • Free shipping.

You can concern a voucher to all clients, or a group of clients, or a single client; you can set its ending date.

The cart rule is mainly an enhanced version of the receipt: what can be done in Wcomm 1.4, in addition to the VAT 1.5 system introduced in Wcomm 1.5:

  • Name a discount.
  • Permit the customer to use only a portion of the discount.
  • Allocate priorities between cart rules.
  • Set up compatibility between cart rules.
  • Some carriers should work only on discounts.
  • Selection of products and / or categories and / or manufacturers and / or suppliers and / or attributes, or all those who work at the same time.
  • Have the discount be related for free shipping and/or a discount on an order and/or a free gift… or all of these at the same time if essential!

In this user guide, “cart rule” and “voucher” are identical and compatible.

The “Card Rules” page lists existing cart rules, which you can enable or disable by clicking on the “Stage” column of icons.

Creating a new cart rule

A receipt will be generated automatically after product revenue, but you can manually create a new receipt and may be more specific about its properties.

There are three tabs in creative form, helping you to create new rules and vouchers accurately.

Information tab

The first tab contains “information”, the identifiers of the rule and the main settings.

  • Name: The name is public, so you should keep it simple.
  • Description: The description is not public. Your shops staffs help understand how governance is created.
  • Code: Give your destiny a unique code. You can create a manually (so use readable words like 1VOUCH4JOE) or create a personal string by clicking the “Create” button for the Wcomm button. Of course, you can use any other string generator at

Please note that this rule applies to any customer applicable to any other condition if no code is set.

  1. If you have a code, you need to enter it when the customer orders it.
  2. If the code is not available, the terms that are useful to customer users will be used automatically.
  • Highlight: If enabled, the WM user will be informed that a ward is applicable to the items in the cart that may be available and available.
  • Section usage: Even if it is disabled, the rule / voucher can only be used once, even if it is not fully utilized. If enabled, a new receipt will be created if the current application is not fully utilized.
  • Priority: If a customer (or customer group) is eligible for more than one receipt, or if more than one receipt can be used in a queue, Wcomm ensures one of the alphanumeric sequences. You can change that order by having a lower priority. By default, they have a priority for all. If you set it up with a high number, then a lesser number of vouchers will then be used for the washer.
  • Position: You can disable and execute a rule whenever necessary.

Conditions Tab

The second tab, “Conditions”, includes a huge set of possibilities, allowing you to accurately target who should be able to advantage from this rule.

  • Limit to a particular customer: This means that the voucher you create is only for a particular customer. For example, if you have a delivery delay, if you want to achieve good, this customer can create a receipt that can be accessed by him or herself. Quickly find the customer in the text field and type in their first name, last name, or email in some letters.

If empty, Wcomm understands more than any customer can use it …                   Except for a client group not more conditional (see the “Customer Group           Selection” box below).

  • Valid: The default value is one month, but you can reduce it to a week or a day.
  • Minimum amount: Minimum order amount, from which the fee is charged. Your receipt applies if the customer order is higher than the amount given. You can choose to add taxes and / or shipping costs to that amount.
  • Get a total: Set the size of the available vouchers: If there is a purpose for a customer or a “number 1” or a receipt for the first use of a number.
  • Total for each user: You can use a receipt for each user. That number should be equal to the available vouchers available (“Total Available” field).
  1. If the number is less than the total number of available tickets, a single customer cannot use them all.
  2. Keeping “1” can be used by the buyer once for each of your customers. In that case, make sure that the band applies to a group more than one customer …

Check boxes are very important because you can use whatever rules you need or who you want to applied

Carrier choice: Customer can discount if you select a specific carrier to distribute it.

Customer group selection: This is very useful. Thanks to Wcomm’s Group Creation Tool, you can stop users’ restrictions and create other conditions for discounting to the Cart rule regulatory tool.

Compatibility with other cart rules: By default, you can get an order from any of the cart rules. With this option, you can tell Wcomm that other rules cannot be attached to this rule. This option only appears if you have more than one cart rule.

Product selection: Another very useful tool, which permits to make automated vouchers for the cart that, contains specific products. The tool is described below.

Shop selection: By default, a cart rule applies to all of your stores. With this option, select your stores selection.

The “Product Selection” option provides a complete new form, and allows each manufacturer to create product sales vouchers for each manufacturer, for each supplier, for each attribute. As a bonus, you can connect your customer goal as much as possible.

For example, you can make automatic vouchers for your customer “Buy at least 3 apple products, get free shipping!”

This is actually a tool in the cart rules and its structure is very significant. Following this path, you can add several product choices:

  1. Click the “Product Selection” link to include a new section.
  2. Indicate the number of items required for discounts to activate.
  3. Add at least one rule that you like: products, attributes, categories, manufacturers, suppliers. If necessary, you can add several rules for the product option you want for each category.
  4. Clicking “OK” includes a new line in the chosen. You need to give details in the case of each case to apply. This type of content (products, categories …) is available to you by clicking on the “Choose” link. Move the content from left to right, click the “Add” button and close the window by clicking “X” on the top right. If only one content is selected, the content title will give its name; otherwise, it will indicate the number of selected content.

You can add several rules within a required selection. These rules are all-inclusive: they are all applicable or discounts.

You can make product selection independently: you can add as many as you need and they will not influence each other. It helps you to build a full range of objects used in the cart rule.

Action Tabs

The third and last tab, “Action”, is where you select   what the discount actually contains:

  • Free shipping: The rule treats benefits customers to free the ships

Apply for Discounts

  • Percent (%): This rule applies to the total percentage of the order. For example, you can say $ 200 before tax in line. The rule is worth 15%. The client, who benefits from these rules, must pay $ 170 (before tax and shipping costs).
  • Amount: The rule applies a fiscal discount on the entire total. For example, you can say $ 200 before tax in line. Offer $ 20 by discount. The customer who is benefitting this rule must pay only $ 180 (before shipping costs). You can choose whether to discount or not.
  • No one: Rule order cannot offer any discount. Selecting this option will disappear from the next section “Apply for Discounts”.

 Apply for Discounts

  • Order (without shipping): Apply the entire order of discount.
  • Specific product: You can choose which discount to apply for the product: type the first character in the product and select the list of matching names.
  • The cheapest product: Only “Percentage (%)” option will be available.
  • Selected product (s): Customer discount can choose which item to use. Only “Percentage (%)” option will be available.
  • Send free gift: You can choose to offer a gift for certain conditions (and skip the entire discounts). A field appears: Type the first letters of the product and select the list of matching names.

Once all has been saved, you can send your receipt code to your customers or the cart rules can automatically be handled automatically depending on your settings.

In the “Price Rules” menu, your voucher appears on the “Cart Rules” page. You can delete or edit it at any time. If a particular team or customer is set up, the customer’s “Vouchers” section will appear in the office in the account and the cart (if you choose). Apply for their order.

The cart rules set to concern all customers will not be visible on the customer’s “My vouchers” page: he needs to know them to use them. Let them know about these general discounts.

In order to concern the cart rule, the customer must go to his cart and enter the voucher in the “Vouchers” field and click on “Add”. Customer can not apply the check if the check is already verified.

Once applied, the cart synopsis shows a voucher’s collision on the order’s of the fund.
