Example 1 will let you know how to set a WooCommerce priority discount with a price discount rule.

Example 2 will let you know how to add a discount order with a cart rule.

Example 1

  • Make a purchase so that it satisfies both the conditions.
  • And confirm which discount gets applied to the customer cart.

Price Discount rules apply directly to the product page of your WooCommerce store.

Price Discount Rule No.1- Specific product price discount

Price Discount Rule No.2- Category based percentage discount

WooCommerce Discount Rules Dashboard

The following is the dashboard after creating both the discount rules with each having two different order priorities.

Note :

  • The discount rules will not be set with the same priority number.
  • The plugin automatically takes the next sequential priority number among your other store discounts.
  • Discount Priority is always taken in ascending order.

Here’s How to quickly create your price discount rules,

Price Discount Rule No.1- Specific product price discount

This discount rule offers a discount only when the customer shops the set product (specific product).

On the rule page, enter the rule name and choose the discount type as “Product Adjustment” as illustrated below,

set the price discount value

The first price rule is created for a specific product (Sunglasses) with a price discount of $5.

Price Discount Rule No.2- Category based percentage discount

On the rule page, enter the rule name and choose the discount type as “Product Adjustment” as illustrated below,

set the percentage discount

The second price rule is created for a specific category (Accessories) with a percentage discount of 20%.

Save and keep both the rules enabled.
Both the price discount rules are now active in the WooCommerce store.

So when the customer shops a Sunglass it obviously satisfies both of our created price discount rules.

Shopping a Sunglass satisfies Price Discount rule No.1- Specific Product Discount.

Shopping a Sunglass also satisfies Price Discount rule No.2- Category based discounts (since it falls under the Accessories category).

Now, let’s look at the shopping cart and see which of the two price discount rule gets applied.

The above cart rule is created with a subtotal configuration with a value greater than or equal to $100.

When the cart subtotal has met with the condition, a percentage discount of 5% is applied to the cart’s subtotal.

Cart Discount Rule No.2- Category based cart discount

Category based cart discount- This cart rule offers a discount automatically to the cart whenever the customer adds any product from the set category.

Choose the discount type as “Cart Adjustment” as illustrated below,

cart discount rule 2 category based

The above cart rule is created for a specific category with a subtotal configuration with a value greater than or equal to $100.

When the cart subtotal has met with the condition, a percentage discount of 20% is applied to the cart’s subtotal.

Save and keep both the rules enabled.
Both the cart discounts are now active in your online store.

So when the customer shops a Sunglass worth $100, it satisfies both of our created cart rules.

Adding a Sunglass worth $100 satisfies Cart discount rule no.1- Subtotal based cart discount.

Shopping a Sunglass also satisfies Cart discount rule No.2- Category based cart discounts (since it falls under the Accessories category).

Now, let’s look at the shopping cart and see which of the two cart rule is applied automatically.
