Purpose and scope

The Multi-buy offers feature allows you to set up and manage offers for your customer. Three offer types can be created:

Offer type

Description

Manual selection

Create a list of products for which the offer applies. Manually select the quantity of each product that needs to be purchased, and specify which product is free.

Cheapest free

Create a list of products for which the offer applies. If all these items are added to the cart, the cheapest is automatically free. For example, “Buy 3, and the cheapest item is free”.

Trigger quantity

Create a list of products for which the offer applies. Specify the number of products that needs to be purchased, and the number of products that are free if that product is in the cart. For example, “Buy 4, get 2 free”.

With each offer, you can set up an automatic start and end date. If no dates are specified, then the offer is available immediately.

Multi-buy offers are created and managed in Aphix Management Interface, and viewable in Aphix WebShop.
