Creating Fixed Price Item Promotions

Fixed price item promotions provide an alternative to offering a currency or percentage discount through a promotion. You can create promotions that offer items at a fixed promotional price.

For example, a promotion that offers any dress for $15 if a customer buys any T-shirt. Rather than entering a discount as a percentage or currency amount, a fixed price for the dress is entered. If the promotion is applied to an order that meets these criteria, the dress price is modified by calculating the amount of discount required to provide the dress for $15.

To create a fixed price item promotion:

  1. Go to Lists > Marketing > Promotions > New.

  2. Select Fixed Price Item Promotion from the SuitePromotions category.

  3. Enter a name and description for this promotion.

  4. Check the Inactive box if you want to make the promotion inactive but not deleted. If this box is checked the promotion will not be available for selection on a transaction.

  5. Enter a start date and an end date for this promotion.

    After the end date, the promotion will no longer trigger discounts, and will no longer appear in the list of available promotions.

  6. Select the combinability options for this promotion. For more information, see SuitePromotions Further Settings.

  7. Check the This promotion can be automatically applied box if you want this promotion to be automatically applied to transactions.

  8. In the Discount Item for Accounting field, select the discount item you want to assign to this promotion. The account on the discount item is impacted by the promotion’s discount. This field is mandatory but only required for accounting purposes.

    To create new discount items, go to Lists > Accounting > Items > New (Administrator). Click Discount.

  9. Enter the Buy conditions for this promotion. For more information, see What the Customer Needs to Buy.

  10. Enter the Get conditions for this promotion. For more information, see Fixed Price Item Promotion Get Conditions.

  11. Enter coupon code details for this promotion. For more information, see Associating Coupon Codes With a SuitePromotion.

  12. Enter usage limits for this promotion. For more information, see Setting Usage Limits on SuitePromotions.

  13. Click Save. You can also do one of the following:

    • Click Save & New to save the form and create a new promotion.

    • Click Save & Copy to save the form and create a new promotion with the same data.
