In the following post, we describe how to increase the effectiveness of the standard Magento shopping cart with the help of the Extendware Cart Price Rule Conditions extension. The module provides the ability to restrict promotions to various customers and make them more precise by adding lots of new conditions, such as a minimum sales value.'
As a result, rewarding loyal customers or customers who make large purchases will stimulate sales. You can even limit promotions on the basis of ID, name, gender, number of purchases, account age, or amount of money spent within a specified time interval. As for available promotions, you can create the following ones:
- Give X% discount if a customer spent $Y in the last Z months;
- Give X% discount if an average order size is $Y+;
- Give X% discount to a customer, who is registered for more than a year;
- Give X% discount to a customer, who didn’t purchase anything during last Z months;
- Discount to frequent customers;
- Discount to all male/female shoppers;
- Discount to new buyers;
Create a new shopping cart price rule and go to the “Conditions” tab. Here, you can create all possible conditions. First of all, the extension allows you add an unlimited number of conditions. Furthermore, it is even possible to generate sub-conditions. And if you are wondering whether the default functionality is available, we have a positive answer:
To reward your biggest spenders, you can create a condition when a discount or a free gift will be given only if a total amount of money spent within a certain period of time is higher than $500 for instance.
These are just few examples, so feel free to improvise.
The Extendware Cart Price Rule Conditions Magento extension is a tiny tool that essentially improves the default Magento capabilities related to shopping cart promotions. The module costs just $59, so don’t hesitate to give it a try.'
