1. How to create Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) Deal for the same product?
This is one of the most commonly offered Buy One Get One free discount type in the online stores. The customer actually gets another quantity of the same product as free.
The deal is often referred in different terms. But their meaning is quite same.
- Buy One and get one of the same product free
- Buy 2 and get one quantity of the same product free
- Buy Product A and get another quantity of Product A free
- Buy T-Shirt Small Size and get another quantity of T-Shirt Small Size free.
- Buy 2 get 1 of the same product free. Buy 4 get 2 of the same product free and so on
- Buy a variant and get the same variant free. Example: Buy a Red Shoe and get another Red Shoe free
The above examples all refer to the Buy X and Get X type of deal.
You can create the BOGO rule in "just three simple steps" using the WooCommerce Discount Rules plugin.
Let us try it using an example configuration. Create a new Pricing Discount Rule by going to WooCommerce -> Woo Discount Rules
Step 1: General Tab
Make sure you choose the methods as Quantity Based by product/category and BOGO deals
Step 2: Define discount conditions
You can choose to apply the discount to "All Products" in the store. That is buying any product in the store would get the customer another quantity as free. Example: When he purchases 2 TShirts and 4 Caps, he would get 1 T-Shirt free and 2 Caps free.
You can also choose to provide the discount only for Selected Categories or Specific Products or Specific attributes.
You also have quite a number of other conditions to use. You can exclude selected products from the discount rule. You can limit the discount rule to only to specific user roles or limit when a customer uses a particular coupon code and more.
Step 3: Define the discount value
Heads up!: I have configured up to 10 quantities for this example. Usually most customers wont purchase more than 10 quantities in an order. However, if you think you may get more quantities in an order, you can add more ranges. There is no limitation to add a range.
Notice that the customer gets a 1 quantity of Memory card as free when he purchases 2 quantities of it.
Similarly, he would get 2 Ankle Socks free when he purchases 4
He would get 3 back cases free when he purchases 6 quantities.
