The Checkout Price Rules module streamlines the process of creating and using multi-buy promotions

To create a multi-buy promotion in TRIMS:

  1. Open TRIMS and head to Promotions and then Checkout Price Rules
  2. In Checkout Price Rules, select “Add Checkout Rule”
  3. In the window that appears, enter a Name and Description for the promotion.
  4. Enter a Start date and End date for the promotion.
  5. Depending on the type of the promotion, enter your rule
    • Set price sets the price of the items in the promo to one fixed price - this is used for promotions such as buy 2 for £5, in that situation, you would enter the value as 5.
    • Discount off cheapest is used for discounting the cheapest item in the promotion for example buy one get one free (discount 100% of cheapest).
    • Overall discount percentage applies a discount to the total value of the items.
  6. The parameters tab allows you to apply multiple parameters that must be met in order for the promotion to be applied
  7. In the screen that subsequently appears, press the “add criteria” button

    If you are wondering what the Combined/Singles option means... Singles means the proposed quantity of a single item whereas Combined means the proposed quantity of any combination of the filtered items.

  8. Filter for the items that you wish to be included in the promotion. A useful tool here is the description product picker:
  9. In the Criteria screen, enter the number to be included in the multi-buy. In the case of the 3 for £10 example, 3 will need to be entered:
  10. Press the save button
