This guide walks you through on how to create a discount rule that provides discount for new customers /first order of their purchase.

NOTE: This feature is available only in PRO version of WooCommerce Discount Rules


Let's see how to create a Discount for New Customers (Registered).
Usually, to make a customer register an account, store owners will provide a initial discount for their first orders alone. Our plugin has a simple rule trick which helps you to offer such discount.

You can set this up both in Price or the cart discount as per your requirement.

What is the difference in setting up price based rule and cart based rule ?

When you create cart based rule, you can provide the following discount:

  • Price discount
  • Percentage discount
  • Free shipping

When you create a price based rule, you can provide discount on specific products as well :)

Example: If you want to provide 10% discount in cart total, then you can set a cart based rule. 

Here is the rule set up:

Go to WooCommerce -> Woo Discount Rules -> Cart based rules .
Click Add New rule.

In the general tab, specify the rule name and provide a description.
In the condition tab, select the type as "number or order purchased" --> Less than or Equal to 0 -> Select order status as per your requirement ( Completed ).

In the discount tab, I am giving a price discount.

Likewise, you can set a price discount rule as well.

Example: Navigate to WooCommerce --> Woo Discount Rules.
Here, select Price based rule and click on "Add new rule".

In the general tab, specify the rule name and provide a description.
In the condition tab, select the type as "number or order purchased" --> Less than or Equal to 0 -> Select order status as per your requirement ( Completed ).

In discount tab, specify percentage value.

Now let's say, if you want to provide a Product for free on their first time order.
Such type of discount is possible only in price rule.

Example : Provide free cap on their first order.  
This will be configuration in the discount tab. 

Likewise, you can set up different discounts for consecutive purchases, in their 2nd order, 3rd order just by creating separate rules and increasing the Number of orders purchased value to 0,1,2,...
