Dynamic Rules System #

Through dynamic rules, you can set: discounts (amount or percentage), fixed price, hidden price, free shipping, minimum and maximum orders (quantity or value), required multiples, tax exemptions, add tax or fee (amount or percentage).

Choose which products/categories a rule applies to.

Choose for which users or user groups a rule applies to. Can also choose: all registered users, all guest users, all B2B users, and all B2C users

Add conditions to each rule: total cart quantity and value, category quantity and value, product quantity and value.

Example: a “free shipping” rule can apply only if the user orders at least $1000 worth of product and at least 500 pieces. 

This allows incredible versatility and full control over each individual user

Examples of things you can achieve:

  • Different prices for different users for the same product: Mark sees $499 but John sees $399 for the same product
  • Bulk discounts: pricing that gets lower as quantity increases
  • Tiered pricing: X price for 1-100 pieces, Y price for 100-1000 pieces
  • Minimum product quantity
  • Minimum category quantity
  • Minimum cart total
  • Group-based free shipping: exclusive free shipping for certain customer roles
  • Quantity discounts per customer group
