How to offer bulk discount / discount based on quantity in the cart

Smart Coupons provide a powerful, “all-in-one” solution for gift cards, store credits, discount coupons, and vouchers extending the core functionality of WooCommerce coupons.

Smart Coupons provides advanced coupon restrictions based on product quantity, product taxonomy, product attributes and others.

If you want to offer volume discounts or bulk discounts or discounts based on quantity in WooCommerce, this feature is quite useful.

You can restrict a coupon based on the quantity of specific products in the cart (for example – 30 caps) and also the total product quantity of multiple products in the cart (for example – 5 caps + 3 belts + 2 sunglasses).

With this quantity discount feature of Smart Coupons, you can cover hundreds of possibilities like these:

  1. Buy 5 items and get a discount of 10%
  2. Offer a flat 20% discount when the cart contains more than six products.
  3. Apply a 15% off coupon only when there are five T-shirts in the cart.
  4. Apply a flat $20 off coupon if the number of products from the footwear category is seven.
  5. Offer 30% off if there are 1000 or more fasteners in the cart.
  6. Apply a $50 gift card/store credit if the minimum number of products in the cart is three. but not more than nine.
  7. Buy up to 100 items, get 10% off…buy items above 100 but less than 500, get 15% off…buy items above 500 and get 30% off…(this tiered type of pricing will require three separate coupons).

and many other cases…

Quantity discounts help clear stock faster, allow users to purchase more and get bulk discounts. It’s basically the “Buy more get more” offer.

Setting up a quantity-based discount coupon

  1. Go to your WordPress Admin panel. Click on Marketing > Coupons.
  2. Create a new coupon or open an existing one.
  3. Choose a discount type – Percentage discount, Store Credit / Gift Certificate and enter the value. Fill in other details as required.
  4. Now click the Usage restriction tab.
  5. Under Products, search and select the specific products you want the coupon to get applied to. Do the same for ‘Product categories’ if required.
    Note – To apply a coupon based on the minimum and maximum values irrespective of products added to the cart, skip this step. (For example – Buy any five items minimum and get 10% off)
  6. Scroll down to locate the ‘Product quantity based restrictions’ option. Here you get two options:
    1. Validate quantity of ‘Cart’
    2. Validate quantity of ‘Product’.
  7. If you choose the Cart option, you can choose the minimum or maximum or both options for the quantity for the coupon to get applied.
  8. If you choose the Product option, you can choose the exact quantity for those products or categories that you selected in step no. 5 above for the coupon to get applied.
    Note – It is necessary to set at least one product or category for the coupon to validate quantity otherwise the coupon will apply without validating the quantity restriction.
  9. Publish / Update the coupon.

That’s it.

Note – You can use the product quantity discount in combination with other coupon restrictions like payment methods, shipping methods, etc. for targeted conversions.
