Example 2:

If you offer the promotion: Buy 7 Get 3 Free with a maximum of 6 free items allowed You can apply the below formula to calculate the correct value for the Maximum Qty Discount.

Formula = (X+Y) * (M/Y)

Where

  • X = The number of items the customer must purchase to get the discount.
  • Y = The number of items the customer will receive for free
  • M = Maximum number of free items allowed

So we have:

  • X = 7
  • Y = 3
  • M = 6

Using the above formula, we can determine exactly the maximum quantity of discount that can be applied when the condition is satisfied:

Maximum Qty Discount = (7+3) * (6/3) = 20

So we set up buy 7 get 3 free as the following:

  • Apply: Buy X get Y free (discount amount is Y)
  • Discount amount: 3
  • Maximum Quantity Discount is Applied: 20
  • Discount Qty Step (Buy X): 7
