1. Introducing Checkout Promo

Checkout Promo allows to display promo blocks basing on rules given. The blocks can be shown on Shopping cart and/or Checkout pages.

Every rule has one condition or a combination of them. The rule will be applied in the case when the condition is met. You can set conditions of different type, e.g. quantity of products put in the cart, certain total price of the products in the cart, product brand, size, color, etc. As far as the customer adds products meeting the flexible conditions of the rule to the cart, the rule will be applied and the promo block will be displayed on the Shopping Cart and Checkout pages.

You can set several conditions for one rule. That’s why it is very important to set logically correct conditions – otherwise the rule won’t be applied.

If all the settings and conditions are set correctly, your customer, having the products put in the cart, can see in shopping cart and checkout something like that:
