Buy X Items and Get Y Items free

Video: Promotion for Discount on Purchase of Multiple Items

How this promotion works


Offer Quantity (OQ) is the quantity of product required


Buy 2 items, get 2 items free.
Let’s say Item 1 costs ₹ 2000,
Item 2 costs ₹ 1500 and
Item 3 costs ₹ 3000 and
Item 4 costs ₹ 1000


Coupon Discount = Ymin(OQ+Y)


CV = Cart value of X+Y items
OQ = mandatory number of items
Y = OQ
Ymin(OQ+Y) = Sum(Y Minimum price in OQ+Y items)

In this example

CV = (2000+1500+3000+1000) = 7500
OQ = 2
Y = 2


Ymin(OQ+Y) = Sum(2 Minimum price in 4 items)
= Sum(1500, 1000)
= 2500
