Managing Promotion Types

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Navigate to: Admin > Extension Engine > Promotion Type-level

Promotions in Znode are handled by the promotions providers, several of which come pre-packaged with Znode:

  • Amount or percent off-brand

  • Amount or percent off catalog

  • Amount or percent off category

  • Amount or percent off an order

  • Amount or percent off product

  • Amount or percent off shipping

  • Amount or percent off X if Y purchased

  • Call for pricing

While the out-of-box Promotions in Znode handles 80% of customer needs, businesses still might have specific scenarios that require them to build their own custom promotion types. This is easily accomplished by extending any of the existing promotion types and implementing the promotion rules.

Ex: You need a promotion that limits the quantity someone can purchase in a specified timeframe. You can create your own promotion type, named something like "VariableHourPromotion", that check’s the User’s previous Order history and determines if they are over the specified limit.
