One of strength of the platform of electronic commerce Magento, is the capacity to generate commercial supplies, as hariamos in a traditional commerce in the real world. Promotions as discount by vol., coupons discount, 21,¦ are possible and relatively easy to form.
For example, to form a supply or promotion of articles 21, is that simple (example realised with Magento Community version 1.7):
- Menu Promotions \ Rules of prices of the cart of purchases
- To add new rule
- In the section Information of the rule , to fill up:
Name of the rule: name of our supply (the clients in the cart will see it)

- In the section Conditions : to indicate conditions if we want that the rule is only applied under specific conditions. For example, to only apply if the payment method is credit card, etc.
- In the section Action :
Here it is where really it is formed,
To apply: to select Buys X and free secures and (the amount of the discount is Y).
Amount of discount (y): 1
Passage of amount of discount (x): 1Y to apply rules to select to what articles apply this supply.
In the following example we have formed a rule by which buying 3 units of a product, it discounts the amount of one of the units, and the articles only can be of 2 chosen categories.
We keep and ready. Of this form the cart will calculate of automatic form the discount corresponding when being fulfilled the selected conditions.
