Migrating to SuitePromotions

 

 

Standard promotions and promotions created using the Advanced Promotions SuiteApp have now been superseded by SuitePromotions. We therefore encourage users with existing standard and Advanced promotions to replace them with SuitePromotions at the earliest opportunity before support is discontinued.

SuitePromotions can be enabled at any time to allow you to take advantage of the new features they offer. For more information, see Configuring Promotions.

You can use standard and Advanced promotions after SuitePromotions have been enabled, but you cannot benefit from the new SuitePromotions features such as Stackable Promotions, Auto-Apply Promotions, or Best Offer when you apply them to a transaction. You will be able to apply only one standard or Advanced promotion to a transaction, for example.

By default, the first promotion you apply to a transaction determines if the SuitePromotions feature can be used. If you apply a standard or Advanced promotion to a transaction, SuitePromotion features are disabled for that transaction only.

The following table shows which features are supported by which promotion type:

If you use the Auto-Apply feature, by default it will be enabled. To manually add standard, Advanced, or SuitePromotions that cannot be automatically applied, you must first clear the Automatically Apply Promotions box on the transaction. For more information, see Automatically Applying Promotions to a Transaction.

If you add a standard or Advanced promotion to a transaction, the Best Offer feature is disabled and you must manually determine if the promotion provides the best offer for the customer. For more information, see Best Offer.
