You can set up “Percent of the product price” discount, and a “Fixed Amount Discount for the entire cart”, but can you do a “Percent discount for the entire cart?”

For example, “Buy 3 of a particular category of item and get 10% off your entire purchase.”

Yes, this should be possible.

How would I do this?  Under Promotions->Shopping Cart Price Rules->Add New Rule->Actions->Apply, there are only the following options.

* Percent of Product Price Discount
* Fixed Amount Discount
* Fixed Amount Discount for Whole Cart
* Buy X Get Y Free

What I’m looking for is something like “Percent Discount for Whole Cart.”

You use percent of product price discount, but then you set discount qty step to be 0 and don’t put any conditions on the promotion. It will apply to all the products in the cart. Here’s an article walking you through it:

I have been told and seen evidence of this, that the &#xag;e discount rule gets over ridden at every sync.
How can this become a permanent rule ? The sync takes place with my inventory program, Retail Express.
