What the Customer Needs to Buy

 

 

In the What the customer needs to buy section, you set the Buy conditions for the promotion. These determine what the customer must add to a transaction to be eligible for the discount provided by the promotion.

Note

Item promotions can contain eligibility criteria for a minimum order amount and a specific item or items, for example, a customer must spend at least $100 and buy a blue scarf. A transaction will only be eligible for a promotion’s discount if it meets all of the criteria. A blue scarf added to the order by a free gift promotion is not taken into consideration for eligibility.
