Filter set above
This will count the quantities of products set in the “Filter” section together.
If you selected a few categories in the filter, it will count the quantities of products in those categories added in the cart altogether.
If you selected a few products in the filters section, then it will count the quantities together.
Individual Product :
This counts the total quantity of each product/line item separately.
If a customer has 2 quantities of Product A, 3 quantities of Product B, then count will be maintained at the product level.
If you have the discount to be applied when 3 or more quantities -> Here the Product B gets the discount applied.
In the case of variable products, the count will be based on each variant because WooCommerce considers a variant as a product itself.
All variants in each product together :
Useful when applying discounts based on variable products and you want the quantity to be counted based on the parent product.
You have Product A - Small, Medium, Large.
If a customer buys 2 of Product A - Small, 4 of Product A - Medium, 6 of Product A - Large, then the count will be: 6+4+2 = 12
For Buy X Get Y discount there is another special configuration:
Auto Add -> Auto-add is possible only when a Specific Product is given for Free.
Product A is free for every purchase.
Cheapest -> Cheapest values product among the selected products from the Get section and based on the quantity to be discounted. Works only when there are more number of selected products in the user cart.
Highest -> Highest valued product among the selected products from the Get section and based on the quantity to be discounted. Works only when there is more number of selected products in the user cart.
