From time to time you may want to run a promotion. For example you could advertise that the first 100 orders in the month of December receive a 20% discount, or you could offer free delivery for orders over $50. 

FoodStorm can handle promotions automatically via your shopping cart.

To create a promotion in FoodStorm:

  1. From the Items menu select Add a promotion.
  2. Enter a promotion code (any mix of characters that you choose e.g. ChrBon2013) and a descriptive name e.g. Christmas Promotion Bonus 2013.
  3. Specify the start and end dates during which time the promotion will apply. The promotion will not be available outside of these dates.
  4. You can optionally specify a minimum order amount (e.g. $50.00).
  5. You can specify the maximum limit on the total number of promotions e.g. 100. Only the first hundred customers will obtain the benefit of the promotion.
  6. You can specify the maximum limit per person (normally you would set this to 1, i.e. One offer per person).
  7. Specify the percentage discount.
  8. Select whether or not this promotion will offer free delivery.
  9. If you are happy with your promotion then click Save and exit.

Note that your promotions will not become available until you enable promotions for your shopping cart. Here's how:

  1. From the Items menu, select Promotions. This will display a list of all your promotions and the Promotion status of each one.
  2. Click the Settings button on the menu bar of the Promotions page (not the main Settings page).
  3. Enable promotions and click Save

As soon as Promotions are enabled, customers can enter promo codes via your shopping cart.
