This feature is available only in PRO version of Woo Discount Rules.
Many store owners, like to encourage their customers by providing discounts based on their previous purchase. So this makes the User to avail benefits which in turns increases number of orders and thus results in productivity :)
Pre-requisites / Requirements:
This is a special type of discount scenario, which only works under certain circumstances.
So carefully read the points below :
The scenario requires validating the below points:
- whether the visitor is a returning customer or a first time visitor
- And we need to check the purchase history to ensure he has orders placed previously
To establish the above facts, we need the visitor to either register and log in. (Example: Purchase history can be validated only for a registered/logged in user)
When a visitor comes to your site, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY of knowing whether he is
- A first time visitor
- A returning customer
The ONLY way to establish and validate whether he is a first timer or a returning customer is "when he logs in"
Only when he is logged in, we can
- retrieve his previous purchase history
- if there is a previous purchase, he is a returning customer
- If there is no purchase, he is a new, first time customer
As a result, this discount scenario can only be run:
- When customer logs in
- Only at the checkout
As a result, the scenario will show the discount only after the customer logs in. Not before that because we may know who the visitor is (a returning customer or a first timer)
Here is how the discount works:
This purchased history based discount is given in accordance with the value/products that customer has purchased previously.
There are seven conditions you can choose from
- First order
- Last order amount
- Last order
- Number of orders made with the following products
- Number of orders made
- Number of quantities made with the following products
- Total spent
Another Feature in providing this condition is that you can associate any Quantity based price rules on Purchase History basis.
Let's see on how to create a price rule:

Example 4: Provide 50% off on a specific product if the customer have already purchased the product with in the month.
50% off will be applied on the pen in the current purchase if the customer have already purchased the same product within 30 days whose order status is processing and completed.
Example 5: 20% off will be applied on all products if the customer have made 3 orders within 7 days.

Example 6: Provide 50% off on a specific product if the customer have already purchased 5 quantities of the same product
So, the 50% off will be applied on the current purchase for the customers who have bought 5 of the same product in their previous orders (include all orders).
Number of orders made with the following products - Here the count will be based on orders made with the respective product.
Number of quantities made with the following products - Here the count will be based on the quantities made with the respective product.
Example 7: Provide 10% discount on specific category if their previous purchase amount is greater than $1000.
