Advanced promotions without the hassle

Set up advanced promotions that either aren't possible in standard Magento, or require combining multiple complex rules to work.

Use a single rule with fine grained control over conditions and actions to set up creative, targeted promotions. Leave promotion restrictions behind!


Ultra flexible

Adds 13 new conditions, promotion types and actions to mix and match with Magento's standard promotion options. Create unique promotions that stand out from the crowd to maximise customer spend and loyalty.

Drive high margin transactions by running promotions on items where you have the margin to discount. Restrict discounts to items of a specific colour, fabric or brand to shift old or surplus stock before it loses value.


Multiply promotions automatically

Promotions can automatically multiply using a single rule. A buy 2, get 1 free deal can automatically become a buy 4, get 2 free deal, or a buy 6, get 3 free deal (unless you choose to limit deals).

This smart feature avoids Magento's multiplier loophole – now you don't need to set up dozens of complicated rules to avoid unknowingly giving away too much.


Promotion links with automatic discounts

Send your customers a link to purchase a product, and the discount or free item will be automatically applied at checkout. No need for the customer to quote the coupon code! Google Analytics will track the rest. This makes it easier for your customers to buy, and allows you to target different customer groups more easily.


Feature List

• Adds 13 new conditions, promotion types and actions to mix and match with Magento's standard promotion options to set up advanced promotions (scroll down for details)
• Easy rule management from the promotions overview page
• Rules automatically multiply correctly
• Automatically adds free items to the customer's cart with a message to the customer (for simple products defined by SKU, and if you are running Magento's one page checkout)
• Give discounts (or freebies) on either the cheapest or most expensive item
• Different coupon codes can trigger the same promotion rule for experimental marketing campaigns (Magento 1.4-1.6 only, as this is now a standard 1.7+ Magento feature)
• Best practice code – zero core files modified

Integrated with standard Magento promotion functionality, including:
• Displays discount at checkout and in Magento pdfs
• Option to exclude specific products or brands from promotions where you don't have the margin to discount
• Set up rules based on product categories or specific products (using SKU's)
• Only automatically adds a free product if in stock
• Run promotions with or without a coupon code

Promotions are one of the main ways to generate revenue on an Ecommerce store. Out of the box Magento has many decent promotions that can be run, but it does limit what you can do. This promotion engine allows you to have more flexibility in your promotions, targeting specific items where you have the margin to discount or to shift specific stock. Without this extension your promotions are limited to broad groups of products or categories.

About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by FOOMAN

Fooman Advanced Promotions 5 5 7 7
A must have to create special promotions! If you are selling anything online, and intend to run promotions at some point, this is a must have extension! I purchased this because this allows my site to run "buy one wedding ring and get the second for free". However, there is a much higher function that we will be using. I can target specific types of rings to package. For example, I can sell "gold rings" only with a buy one get one free offer. In addition to this being a great extension, I would like to comment Kristof of Fooman for his very quick installation of the extension and most importantly, he actually set up two working samples that I was able to implement right away (please don't expect Fooman to set up examples for you, I think Kristof went way above and beyond for me, he knew that I needed help). Great product and five start customer service and support! September 4, 2013
Excellent extension! This extension is great and works as promised. The support is definitely one of the best i have experienced dealing with Magento extension providers. Thank you, will recommend this extension to other customers again! July 31, 2013

Answer: 
Hi there,

You will still need to create different promo codes for each promotion type. Feel free to check out the demo store to trial out the settings in a test environment. Also keep in mind we offer a 30 day money back guarantee on all paid extensions, so if it doesn't work as intended, we will send a full refund back onto the credit card you used.

Cheers,

Answer: 
Hi John,

Thanks for your interest in Fooman Advanced Promotions.

Depending on how you define on sale this is already something a default Magento installation can do for you. I would create a new category ON SALE (this can be hidden from your category navigation) and place all items in this category. If you then want to exclude these from other promotions just add under the Actions tab in the Apply section Category Is Not One Of (Category Id of the ON SALE category).

Cheers,

I would like to add the AutoCoupon functionality to my promotions.
The promo that I set up is for 15% all items in the Apparel category.

The Enable AutoCoupons is turned on. However, I do not see the input field for the List of Coupons.

My Magento version is 13.02

Coupon code= MINT144

The link used -
http://www.charmingcharlie.com/apparel.html?UTM_campaign=MINT144

Please help in getting this function to work for me.

Answer: 
Hi Sharon,

Thanks for using Advanced Promotions. List of Coupons is a feature that is now available in Magento by default and we do only add this on older Magento versions. In newer versions take a look at the "Manage Coupon Code" tab in conjunction with the setting "Use Auto Generation".

In your link please make sure that utm_campaign is all lower case. Also when testing clear your cookies as this functionality only works on the first page visit in the session. And lastly the landing page needs to create a Magento session so if you are using any caching solutions that do not load to Magento's session you need to exclude your landing page.

Cheers,

Answer: 
Hi there,

Currently there is no officially supported Enterprise version. Other customers have successfully used the community edition with Magento Enterprise - it's just that this has not yet been fully tested by us, and any Enterprise specific features won't be supported.

Rest assured that our extensions include a 30 day money back guarantee, so feel free to test out the extension on your own development site. If it doesn't work as intended, just let us know and we will refund your purchase.
