Implementing multibuy promotions in ASPDotNetStorefront

Filed under: General news — Tags: , — Webopius @ 1:13 pm

The new promotions engine implemented in ASPDotNetstorefront 9.3 is certainly an improvement and much more flexible than the original coupons/discounts model in previous ASPDNSF releases.

However, it doesn’t currently appear to support the more complex multibuy promotions used heavily in retail. For example ‘Buy X of the same product, get Y% discount’, or ‘Buy X products, get the cheapest free’.

New multibuy promotions in ASPDNSF

Webopius have recently implemented two new promotion types for a client using the new ASPDotNetStorefront promotions engine:

  • Multibuy Percentage – used when adding the same product to a basket. Buy X of the Products and get Y% off. Can be used to support ‘buy 3 of the same product and get 1 free’ or ‘buy 3 of the same product and get 10% off’
  • Multibuy Cheapest product is free – used when adding any valid products to a basket (you determine which products). Buy X of the Products and get the cheapest product free.

Implementing these new promotion types gives your store access to a whole new range of promotions for you and your Customers. It also gives you a competitive edge over other ASPDotNetStorefront based stores who do not have access to this promotion engine.

These new promotions can be implemented against specific products, or alternatively can be applied across whole categories, departments or manufacturers.

Implement multibuy promotions on your ASPDotNetStorefront store

If you would like to add support for these new multibuy promotions within your ASPDotStorefront site, then contact Webopius.
Please note that this is custom development work and does require you to have a source code license for your ASPDotNetStorefront release.
