Set-Up WooCommerce Discount Rules

Configuring Woo discount plugin to fit in your WooCommerce store is pretty simple and takes no more than five minutes. This article walks you through on how to set up Woo Discount Rules plugin and which setting does what.

Step 1: Select ‘Woo Discount Rules’ under ‘WooCommerce’ tab in your WordPress site dashboard.

After selecting Woo Discount Rules plugin, it opens up a window on the right side of the WP dashboard where you can find three tabs.

  • Price discount rules
  • Cart discount rules
  • Settings

We are configuring the plugin and you’d probably know what to choose. Yes, Settings, it is.

In the Settings tab, you have around 8 very basic properties to configure. Here’s how it looks.

General Configuration

The general configuration of the plugin deals with the settings that are needed to run the Woo Discount rule plugin.

License Key

The License Key is the unique code used for validating your plugin instance. You can get your License key on your My Downloads page. Enter your license key and click “Validate”.

Price Rule Configuration

If you want to provide discounts on product level or specific products, you need to create a price rule. The configuration you carry out in this segment will be reflected in the product page whenever you set a “price rule”.

Rule setup for price

This field applies only to ‘Price Discount Rules’ and NOT to Cart Discount Rules. It has 3 options:

If there are two or more discount rules that apply to the same product, this field decides which rule to actually apply.

  • Apply first matched rule - To apply the rule with the highest priority or order
  • Apply all matched rules - To apply all the matching rules
  • Apply biggest discount - To apply the rule that offers the highest discount

Note: The property applies to all the discount rules that you have created and not just one rule.

Show price discount on product page

Familiar with the “Strikethrough” that appears on the product price when there is a discount?

Set the value of this property to “Show” for the strikethrough to appear. Otherwise, set it to “Don’t Show”.

Show Sale tag on the product page

Let your customers know the best selling products on the product page by displaying ‘Sale’ tag. Select the option ‘Show’ in the field drop box to display the Sale tag on the product page.

Discount table

The discount table appears on the product page and shows all the discounts applicable on the product. It has two columns - Range and Discount. To display the discount table on the product page, select “Show”. Else select “Don’t show”.

The storefront looks like the below screenshot when the discount table is enabled.

Show discount title on the table

If this property is set to “Show”, then an additional column “Name” appears on the discount table. This column displays the “Rule Name” of the WooCommerce discount rule. If it is set to “Don’t Show”, then the table displays only the Range and Discount columns. Configuring WooCommerce Discount Rules is that simple.

Show Column discount range on table

The smart way of explaining the customers about your WooCommerce discount. By displaying the column discount range in the product pricing table, the customer gets to know about your discount rule related to that product. This also makes the customer choose bulk discount offers to in order to save more.

Show Column Discount on table

This field enables you to show the column discount in the pricing table to your customers when they are on the product page.

Show strikeout discount in Cart item

Many times we would have noticed ‘strikeout’ of the discount rated in the cart. This checkbox is enabled accordingly if you want the strikeout discounted rate to be displayed in the cart or not.

Auto add free product on coupon applied

Say, you create a discount coupon and associate that coupon with a discount rule.

Let the coupon code be "SUMMER". The coupon rule is to gift a cap free when the subtotal is $500. So, when the total reaches $500 and when you don't have the product "cap" in the cart, two conditions are checked

  1. If "Auto add free product on coupon applied" is set to ‘Yes’. The product will automatically be added to the cart when the customer enters the coupon code.
  2. If "Auto add free product on coupon applied" is set to ‘No’. The product will not be added automatically to the cart.

Cart Rule Configuration

This setting will be reflected in the product pages when you set a "Cart rule"

Coupon name to be displayed

The coupon name which is associated with a discount rule needs to be entered in this field.

Note: Make sure you create coupon codes which are easy to remember by your customers.

Rule setup for cart

If there are two or more discount rule that applies to the same discount rule, this field decides which rule to actually apply.

It has 3 options:

  • Apply first matched rule - To apply the rule with the highest priority or order
  • Apply all matched rules - To apply all the matching rules
  • Apply biggest discount - To apply the rule that offers the highest discount

Enable Free shipping option

  • Select ‘WooCommerce free shipping’ if you wish to go with the shipping offers of default WooCommerce.
  • Select ‘Woo discount free shipping’ if you offer special shipping discounts based on shipping address.
  • Select ‘discabled’ if free shipping offer is to be declined.

Message on apply discount in cart

Want to display some text message when a customer chooses to apply for a discount in the cart, set the field option to ‘enable’ else leave it as ‘disable’

Content to display in message

When “message on apply discount in cart” is set to ‘enable’, it opens a new field where you will be asked to enter the message that needs to be added.

  • Selecting the ‘Title’ will make the ‘discount title’ to be displayed
  • Selecting the ‘Description’ will make the ‘discount description’ to be displayed.
  • Selecting ‘Title and Description’ will make both the ‘discount title’ and ‘discount description to appear when a customer chooses to apply a discount in the cart.
