Set Up WooCommerce Order Discount

With YayPricing – WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing & Discounts, it’s easy to apply a cart discount to the whole order.

Here are more detailed steps to set up an order discount of 20% off the entire order when a customer buys at least 5 items.

Step 1: Create a new discount rule

Log in to your WordPress admin and navigate to YayPricing → Cart Discounts tab.

Click on the “Add Rule” button to create a new discount rule for cart.

In the “Name” field, enter a name for this new discount campaign. For example, I’ll name it “20% off your entire order if minimum quantity of items reaches 5.”

Step 2: Define the discount type

The first tab of “Discount type” is like the “Customer gets” section, feel free to specify what you’re gonna offer. By selecting “Percentage discount” and setting “Discount value” as 20%, your customer will get 20% off the cart’s total value.

Step 3: Add discount conditions

In the next tab which is “Conditions”, you will specify “Customer buys”, i.e. what the customer should buy in order to qualify for the discount. To set 5 as the minimum quantity of items required for the discount, you can select “Cart quantity” and set it as “greater than 4.”

And so this means whenever the customer has 5 items, regardless of products, they will enjoy the 20% discount, deducted from the cart total.

You can fill it with your own custom message, along with two variables provided.

Now let’s get to the fancy part. With YayPricing – WooCommerce Dynamic Pricing & Discounts Pro, you will be able to dynamically display a message to let the customer knows how much they should buy in order to enjoy the most reachable discount.

As you can see, based on the current cart quantity which is 4, the message is telling the customer to add 1 more item to cart so that their order will qualify for the discount.

With these steps, your customers will receive a discount of 20% off the entire order when they buy at least 5 items. This can help incentivize customers to purchase more items from your store and increase your sales.
