Buy X Get Percent or Dollar Discount Discount
Buy X Get Promos offer a range of flexibility on how you can offer Buy One Get percent or Dollar Discounts to your donors.
Here are some examples below.
1) For every 1 item added to the cart, a discount is applied to the entire contribution by 10%. It can be applied unlimited times.
Without a limit, if you add 10 items to your cart, that's 100% off your entire contribution.
2) For every 1 item added to the cart, discount the entire contribution by 10%. It can be applied once.
So with a limit of 1, the largest discount you can get is 10% off your entire contribution.
3) For every 2 items added to the cart, discount the entire contribution by 15%. It can be applied twice.
