Your Magento Online Store for the Holiday Season
It’s the end of September, and it’s time to think about the upcoming holiday season. For online shop owners it’s the time to increase your revenue, and for online shoppers it’s the time to purchase items for a bargain price.
So what features does Magento have to cater this both the B2B or B2C needs of your business?
Magento has several fantastic functions to convert your needs into a reality.
You can use a product special price through each product.
Go to products that you need the promotion to be on, and click on price tab. You can set a special price for your product and for given date rage by selecting the date for “Special Price From Date” to “Special Price To Date”. This will set the special price for given date period.
Tier Price Option
Tier price is another option to set your promotion price.
Go to products that you need the promotion to be on and click on price tab. You can set several Tier prices. The tier price is where you can assign a price based on the customer group and quantity of purchase.
Tier pricing is not date rage based like special pricing so you may need to remember to turn it off after the holiday season!
Magento has two Promotion types.
- Catalog Price Rules
- Shopping Cart Price Rules
Catalog Price Rule Promotion
The Catalog price rule allows you to set a product on sale according to a certain condition, for example : Buy 2 get one 3rd product 10% off.
