Fixed price promotions

The fixed price promotion object and the allowed CRUD operations on the related resource endpoint

Commerce Layer provides a promotional engine built on top of two main resources: promotions and promotion rules.

When triggered, fixed price promotions are responsible for adding a discount to the orders involved. The related discount amount is computed by imposing a fixed price for the SKUs matching the associated list.

In order for a fixed price promotion to apply to bundles, the resources must share the same SKU list (in this case, there is no SKUs partial matching).

Application scope

Fixed price promotions are defined by currency code and can be restricted to a specific active market (in which case the currency code is inherited by the market's price list). Within the time window given by their activation and expiration dates, fixed price promotions that have not reached their total usage limit are considered active. If no promotion rule is associated with an active fixed price promotion, the related discount is applied to:

  • All the orders in the specified currency, if the promotion is not restricted to a specific market.

  • All the orders of the market in scope, if the promotion is attached to a market.

Otherwise, if one or more promotion rules are defined, the promotion is triggered only when it matches all of them.

Multiple fixed price promotions can be applied to the same order, even concurrently with other promotion types (based on their priority and up to the involved items amount saturation), as long as you don't reach the maximum number of active promotions allowed for your organization.

Discount calculation and distribution

The total discount due to fixed price promotions is calculated and distributed on the matching line items of type skus or bundles belonging to the associated SKU list, according to the promotion logic.
