Cart Price Rules and Catalog Price Rules are vital features of Discount Rules in Magento 2 and effective sales promotion methods in Marketing, as I mentioned in the previous post.

In this post, I only go straight to the guideline presenting how to set up Shopping Cart Price Rules in Magento 2 with many examples and Free Shipping case.

What is Magento 2 Cart Price Rule?

Magento 2 Cart Price Rule is a discount rule applied to items in the shopping cart, while Catalog Price Rule is displayed on the store view. Magento 2 Cart Price Rules can be used by coupon code or the conditions, which store admin set. 

Usually, the rules are valid for the order value, the order quantity, or a product group. You can customise the duration of the promotion campaign and edit the properties when you want to update information.

  3. Status: Turn to Active to make it live
  4. Customer Groups: Choose the audiences that you want to apply the rule. You should use it for all customers.

  1. Uses per Customer: the limit of times that a coupon code can be used for the same customer (logged in account only).
  2. Choose the starting and ending dates on the Calendar.
  3. Priority: Use The Priority setting when you set more than one discount rule for the same catalogue product. The rule with the highest priority setting (1 being the highest) will be on Active status. 

For example: You discount 5% of the price for your products, while your customers have a Save 10% Coupon Code. You must put coupon code as a priority for customers in case two rules are not applied together.

2. Conditions

As same as the post Catalog Price Rules, you can see two sections, “ALL or ANY” and “TRUE or FALSE”. The default mode is always “If ALL of these conditions are TRUE”. It means that rule is applied to all products. 

If we choose ALL, it means that we apply the rule to products matching all conditions.

If we choose ANY, it means we apply the rule to products matching one of the conditions.

In Magento 2 Cart Price Rule conditions, you can find many setups to apply the rules, such as subtotal, total items quantity, total weight, payment method, shipping method, shipping postcode, shipping region,…

a. Example 1: Discount rules for all products

  1. Create Coupon Codes to apply to all products. 
  2. Choose “ALL of these conditions are TRUE”.

Now, you have the coupon codes applied to all products.

b. Example 2: Discount rules for products, including all conditions

cart-price-rules-example2
  1. Choose “ALL of these conditions are TRUE”.
  2. Click the green button to add conditions like Subtotal.
  3. Click the green button again to add more conditions, such as Shipping Country, Shipping Method, Payment Method,…

For example:  I choose Subtotal as equals or greater than 200. Shipping Country as American Samoa. It means that customers ordering from the USA who have a receipt value of over $200 will be discounted.

c. Example 3: Discount rules for products matching one of those conditions

cart-price-rules-example3
  1. Choose “ANY of these conditions are TRUE”.
  2. Click the green button to add conditions.

For example: Subtotal as equals or greater than 200.

  1. Click the green button again to add more conditions.

For example: Total items quantity as equals or greater than 3.

We will have the rule applied to the receipt value from $200 or from 3 items.

d. Example 4: Conditions Combination

cart-price-rules-example4
  1. Choose “ANY of these conditions are TRUE”.
  2. Click the green button, choose Subtotal as equals or greater than 200.
  3. Click the green button, choose Total items quantity as equals or greater than 3.
  4. Click the green button, choose Conditions Combination
  5. Choose ALL of these conditions are FALSE

For example: The Shipping Method is [freeshipping] Free.

We have the price rule applied to the receipt value from $200 or 3 items, except for free shipping orders.
