Promotions in Magento


Promotion is one of the best way to push sales. ConnectPOS supports your promotion settings in E-commerce site.

Promotion types

  • Catalog Price Rules - Catalog price rules can be used to selectively put products on sale under certain conditions. Catalog price rules do not use coupon codes, because they are triggered before a product is placed into the shopping cart.
  • Shopping Cart Price Rules - Shopping cart price rules create discounts for orders at the checkout level, based on a set of conditions. The discount can be applied automatically when the conditions are met, or be applied when the customer enters a valid coupon code. When applied, the discount appears on the shopping cart page under the subtotal.
  • Special Price - To offer a Special Price, enter a discounted price and complete the date range fields to establish when the promotion goes into effect.
  • Tier Price - Tier pricing lets you offer a quantity discount from the catalog list and product detail pages. The discount can be applied to a specific store view or customer group.

Note: On ConnectPOS, Special Price and Tier Price will be automatically updated in realtime.


In ConnectPOS, you can discount both on selected items in cart and the whole cart.

To override the price of an item in cart:
