Introduction:

Discount on specific products is a feature provided by theDiscount Rules for WooCommerce plugin, offering a price reduction or a special offer that is applicable only to a particular item in your product inventory. Instead of applying a discount to the entire order or a group of items, it is limited to specific products.

For example, let's say you have an online store that sells various electronics, and you want to offer a discount specifically on a popular smartphone model. You could set up a discount where customers receive a certain percentage or a fixed amount off the regular price of that particular smartphone when they purchase it.

Examples scenarios of setting up discounts on specific products:

  • Provide 10% discount on Hoodie (Simple product)

  • Receive a $3 discount on T-shirts (Variable product)

  • Buy 5 bags and get 10% off, 6 or above gets 20% off

Make sure you have already installed and activated the Discount Rules plugin. Please note that some of the features explained in the examples are available only in the PRO version.
