Discounts on the cheapest or most expensive items

Discounts and gift credits assigned to coupons, cart promotions, and referral codes can be applied to the whole cart or to selected items. You can discount particular product collections and on top of that apply discounts only to the cheapest or the most expensive items. In this guide, we'll cover validation rules that apply discounts to the cheapest and most expensive cart items.

Discount the cheapest/most expensive items

To discount the cheapest/most expensive items, you need to choose a respective discount effect when creating a discount/gift card. Selecting discounted/excluded items is a part of the validation rules setup.

Step 1: Apply discount to items

After defining the discount value, choose to apply the discount to the items.

Step 2: Select discounted items

In the next step, choose to discount Selected and then, Add items to define which items will be included. 

Before you choose to discount the cheapest or most expensive items, you can filter out the group of qualified products. When redeeming the discount, it will be applied to the cheapest/most expensive item from the selected group. If you don't want to filter products and discount each cheapest/most expensive product from the customer's cart, choose the built-in collection All products. Read on for the detailed instructions.
After clicking Add items, you'll see the Filters Builder that enables you to define discounted items in the following ways: 
  1. Select existing products from your list. 
  2. Create a products collection(s) that defines what criteria items have to match to qualify for a discount. 
  3. Choose from an existing product collection(s).
  4. Choose the built-in collection All Products. This collection gathers all products provided in the customer's cart without any additional filters. 

Step 3: Apply discount to the cheapest/most expensive item

After choosing products or collections, you can decide if the discount will be applied to all qualified items or only to the cheapest or most expensive of the qualified products.

Note that you can add another component defining discounted items and combine many effects. For example, the discount can be applied to the cheapest and most expensive product in the cart.

Likewise, you can use the same methods to define excluded products. As a result, the discount won't be applied to the selected items.


Create redemption limits for the cheapest/most expensive items

Besides discounting or excluding the cheapest/most expensive items, you can set additional validation rules that need to be met by the cheapest or the most expensive items. As a result, chosen item(s) will be validated against pre-defined limits when redeeming the discount.

To access the rules, you need to use the  Advanced rules builder.

Then, expand the order structure category.

You can see the rules dedicated to the cheapest or most expensive items.

First, choose the rule and click  Add. Next, choose if you want to set rules for the cheapest/most expensive item in the cart or for the cheapest/most expensive item in the cart that belongs to a specific product collection. 

  • By choosing All Products collection, the validation chooses the cheapest/most expensive of all items in the cart.
  • By choosing a specific collection created with product filters for example "Desserts category", the validation chooses the cheapest/most expensive item in the cart that belongs to the chosen collection.

Then you can define the following limits for the cheapest/most expensive item:

  • Subtotal of matched items – the total amount of all qualified cheapest/most expensive items.
  • Quantity of matched items – the total count of all qualified cheapest/most expensive items.
  • Items quantity in any matching order line  – this rule defines the required quantity of each qualified cheapest/most expensive item.
  • Unit price of any matching order line – this rule defines the required price of each qualified cheapest/most expensive item.
  • Metadata of matched items - builds limits using order line item metadata. Rules need to be met by each qualified cheapest/most expensive item.
